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

Aside from all the festive season trimmings bedecking the streets of Cape Town, another city tradition prepares to fill the inner-city roadways with groups of fancy-dressed revellers. That’s right folks, it’s time to walk, jog, gallop, skip, crawl or monster mash your way through the streets of our town as part of the Twilight Team Run on Tuesday, 1 December 2015. The much-anticipated calendar highlight celebrates its 33rd 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, the fun walk – and its 20 000 fun walkers – weaves its way from the Grand Parade through the side streets of the CBD and back to the starting point again in roughly 90 minutes. Prior to the festive saunter, a dress-up competition will be held (5:30pm), and afterwards merrymakers revellers are invited to party into the evening.  

This year’s theme is ‘uniting the city for charity’ and proceeds from the event will be invested in education, with the intent of equipping thousands of scholars to enter the 2016 school year.

HOW THE 2015 TWILIGHT TEAM RUN IN CAPE TOWN WORKS

Putting the F-U-N back into fun walk, the Twilight Team Run encourages participants to band together in groups 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 necessary to tackle the Twilight Run as a team; individuals are also welcome as participants, as are multiple groups running under the same banner or theme. 

What’s more, this charity event has become a popular end-of-year office affair so encourage your colleagues to join you in having some fun while making a difference. The Twilight Team Run officially kicks off at 6:30pm, but it’s best to arrive by 5pm to either take part or simply check out the best dressed competition. 

Make sure you stick around after the walk for the prize-giving and electrifying performances by Jimmy Nevis and X-Factor winners Four. Following the main acts, a DJ will drop some toe-tapping beats until 10:30pm.
