I contacted Philippa a few days before I arrived in Cape Town and told her about my running habits and preferences. I had four runs with her and all four were breathtakingly amazing. Philippa is such a nice person and a really strong runner.

Awesome run around Lions head on routes we would never have found ourselves. Stopped for water breaks and lots of interesting points of information along the way. Phillipa also took some great photos of us and send them on afterwards. Couldn't recommend this activity enough!
