Twilight Team Run in Cape Town

Strut your stuff through the streets of the Mother City in support of the Cape’s oldest charitable organisation


Walk, jog, gallop, skip, crawl or monster mash your way through the streets of Cape Town as part of the Twilight Team Run on Tuesday, 3 December 2013. The much-anticipated charity-driven calendar highlight celebrates its 31st birthday this year, and eager participants can look forward to the wildest, wackiest event yet. 

In support of the Community Chest of the Western Cape (CC), the fun walk – and its more than 20,000 fun walkers – weaves its way from the Grand Parade through the slicing side streets of the CBD and back to the starting point (in roughly 90 minutes time). Prior to the festive saunter, a dress-up competition will be held, and afterwards, revellers are invited to party into the evening.  

All proceeds from the event go to the social welfare and development organisations under the CC’s umbrella (there are over 300 in the Western Cape). As the oldest charitable body in the Cape, the CC aims to advance, empower and care for vulnerable communities. 

How the 2013 Twilight Team Run works

Putting the F-U-N back into fun walk, the Twilight Team Run encourages partakers to band together in groups of four to six and dress up in crazy, kooky outfits that may or may not relate to something that’s currently happening in the city. In the past, everything from superheroes and Afro clowns to Golden Arrow buses and Hawaiian hula girls have taken to the streets of the Mother City to strut their stuff and rally around a good cause.

That said, it’s not absolutely necessary to tackle the Twilight Run as a team; individuals are also welcome as participants, as are multiple groups operating under the same banner or theme. 

Not to mention, the charity event has become a popular end-of-year office affair. Corporates are even invited to rent a hospitality site at the after-party on the Grand Parade and provide hard-earned entertainment for their industrious worker bees.

The Twilight Team Run officially kicks off at 7pm, but it’s highly advised to arrive by 5pm for the best-dressed competition. 

Registration for the 2013 Twilight Team Run

Registration for the 2013 Twilight Team Run opens on Monday, 4 November 2013 and participants can enter either online via TwilightRun.co.za or at the Community Chest offices at 82 Bree Street. Entrance fees are R50p/p for individuals, R200 per team (four to six persons) and corporate hospitality sites cost R2000 (these spots are limited).
