November Full Moon Hike
Join the third installment of our new Full Moon Hiking Series.
Every month, starting September 2018, we will go hiking under the Moonlight, as close as possible to the Full Moon.
On November 23rd, 2018, we will hike about 60 minutes away from central Jeddah – the exact location will be shared with registered participants. ( The November Hike is in a different location than the September and October Hike!)
We will have THREE groups
- GREENgroup: 5km – D+ 340m incline – IBP Index: 22
- BLUEgroup: 8km – D+ 490m incline – IBP Index: 31
- REDgroup: 10.5km – D+ 531m incline- IBP Index: 56
(as a reference, here are some previous hikes IBP indexes:
- GREENgroup: September Full Moon – IBP Index: 25
- Allgroup: October Full Moon – IBP Index: 27
- BLUEgroup: September Full Moon – IBP Index: 32
- BLUEgroup: One Peak (Jabal Serr) – IBP Index: 69
- REDgroup: TWO Peaks (Jabal Daf) – IBP Index: 92 )
- The BLUEgroup and the GREENgroup are taking the same route Out-And-Back. The BLUEGroup will push further ( to the top of the “Egyptian slide” ) while the Green group can take a well-deserved pause waiting for the BLUEgroup to come back.
- The REDgroup will move at a face pace, on a treacherous route, mostly off-road. This is for advanced hikers ONLY. This is a LOOP: There is no access possible for vehicles ( not even by 4×4 ) So if you start this trail you MUST finish it.
- A small backpack (or hydration pack ) with 1 liter of water per person minimum will be required ( not provided by the Organizers). Snacks optional.
- A head torch ( or hand torch ) with RED LIGHT mode. you will not be allowed to start the hike if your torch doesn’t have a RedLight mode. The Red Light helps preserve your night vision and will make the hike more enjoyable for all. 40 Head Torches with RedLight are available for lease from the organizers at the time or registration. Just to be clear: WHITE LIGHT Head Torch will NOT be able to join the group. We will check.
Notes regarding the Leased Head Torches:
- the lease for the Head Torch is 8 SAR ( so it will cost 22 to take part + 8 to lease = 30 SAR)
- in our Full Moon September event, we were not able to meet the demand for Leased Head Torches. We bought more than the dozen initially purchased but still were short. We bought another dozen for the October Full Moon. and still, we were not able to meet the demand. We have now bought YET AN OTHER 12. Will we have enough? We hope not :-p….
- If you don’t want to be disappointed, book early!
- your Head Torch will only be confirmed upon receiving your payment. In short, paying by Credit Card will guarantee you a Head-Torch if available. We will however only lock your Head-Torch if you pay by Bank Transfer upon reception of the funds. The same applies to Cash Payment on Pick-Up ( where you will be asked to meet us BEFORE the event to pay ). Selecting Cash On Delivery ( Pay on the Day) is likely to lead to disappointment if you need a Head-Torch. You’ve been warned!
- 22 SAR if you Bring Your Own HeadTorch with a RedLight Mode.
- 30 SAR if you want to LEASE a HeadTorch with a RedLight Mode.
