The fun and wacky Community Chest Twilight Team Run is taking place on Tuesday 6 December 2011. It’s the 29th running of the popular event, which sees around 20,000 participants crawling, walking, dancing and running through the streets of the Mother City.


You can enter the 2011 Community Chest Twilight Run as an individual or in of team of four to six people. As always, participants are encouraged to dress up in crazy costumes for the race. Six prizes to the value of R10,000 will be sponsored by Lewis Stores and trophies from Good Hope FM will be up for grabs.

The Twilight Team Run raises much needed funds for the Community Chest, an organisation which supports over 400 social development agencies. Beneficiaries include children and families in need of help, the homeless, elderly, physically and mentally challenged and people living with HIV/AIDS.

The race distance is 4,5km and the venue for the start and finish is the Grand Parade. Remember to get there early as judging for the best dressed team starts at 17h00, while the race starts at 19h00.

Hospitality sites (4m x 3m) are also available on a first come first serve basis for R1,500 each, with numbers strictly limited to 100 sites. If you’d like to have a braai at your site, then be sure to take note that only gas braais will be permitted.
