Join the Community Chest and hit the streets of Cape Town at a fun run and massive party, for the 33rd annual Twilight Festival.

Community Chest is a non-profit organisation that envisages a country where everyone can reach their full human potential. They focus on four principles: health, education, income generation and community development to promote social change and motivate citizens to be active, engaged and impactful.

The theme this year is ‘Uniting the City for Charity’ and considering all the big hype about the cost of education this year, what better initiative to support – all proceeds raised will go to the education sector.


The 5 km race begins in front of the City Hall, in Darling Street, and then meanders along Long Street, Adderley Street, and Strand Street, through the Company’s Garden with the finish line back at the Grand Parade.

Start preparing your corporate team, because the best-dressed competition starts before the race at 5:30 pm where you can win your share of R20,000 towards a charity of your choice.


The Festival
The festival takes place at the Grand Parade from 8 pm to 10:30 pm and award-winning Capetonian alternative pop singer, Jimmy Nevis will dazzle at the festival. Supporting him will be X-Factor winners, Four, who are sure to put on an electrifying show.

There will be refreshment stations along the race route, and you can expect fabulous food vendors and a bar for over-18s. Along with the sensational entertainment, there will be spot prizes available to keep you on your toes at the festival. Get happy-snapping and tag your pics with #Twilight2015 to be featured in the event gallery. See you there!
