Community Chest Twilight Run/Festival

Each December the Cape Town city centre comes alive for a run at which no winner is declared and no medals are awarded – there isn’t even an official timekeeper – yet year after year it attracts upwards of 20 000 entries.

When pictures of the iconic city marathons – London, New York, Tokyo – are beamed around the world they invariably include an image of someone dressed in an improbable outfit, usually to raise money for a good cause. At Cape Town’s Twilight Team Run the idea of dressing up to support a cause has eclipsed any athletic pretensions the 32-year-old event may once have had. In fact prizes are awarded for the best outfit rather than fastest run. Company directors line up alongside refuse workers and accountants compete with nurses, factory workers and cleaners to get their outfits noticed.

Community Chest invites all corporates, families and everyday hereos to take to the streets of the Mother City and show their super-side for charity.

Be a SuperYou on a Mission for good causes. Dress Up, Show Up and take back the streets in the Twilight 5km Fun Run/Walk.
