Delvera Hi-Tec Full Moon Hikes

Watch the sunset from Klapmutskop with stunning views of the Winelands & Table Mountain in the distance. Enjoy your picnic and see the full moon rise over the Hottentots Holland mountains.

Community Chest Twilight Team Run

Time to party—with a purpose!
Put your running legs to good use and sign on for the annual Twilight Team Run, and be ready to party with a purpose.
Entries are now open for one of the biggest mass participation fundraising events in South Africa and the signature event of the Community Chest of the Western Cape, the Twilight Team Run. Now in its 32nd year the Twilight Team Run is always hosted on the first Tuesday in December, ushering in the season of giving in Cape Town.
Each December the Cape Town city centre comes alive for a run at which no winner is declared and no medals awarded – there isn’t even an official timekeeper – yet year after year it attracts upwards of 20 000 entries and over 1500 businesses.
At the Twilight Team Run the idea of dressing up has eclipsed any athletic pretensions the event may once have had. In fact prizes are awarded for the best outfit rather than the 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 Chief Executive Officer Lorenzo Davids praised all the participants, who come from all over the Western Cape, for their extraordinary support for the Twilight Run. “The Twilight run encourages people from all walks of life and celebrates the rich diversity of the Western Cape,” he said. “It inspires us all to take action and pledge to come together at this event for fun—and for the greater good.”
Last year more than 20 000 people turned up for the party and the Community Chest raised more than R700 000 So let’s make sure we throw an even bigger party with a purpose in 2014.

Judging of the best-dressed teams starts at 5pm, and the run starts at 7pm.

Enter online at www.comchest.org.za. These close 28 November at midnight. After that you can still enter manually at 82 Bree Street, Cape Town, or on race morning.
