Cape Town weekend highlights, November 12 – 14
More than 35 000 walkers will take part in the Discovery Cape Times Big Walk on Sunday, an annual Mother City tradition dating back to the early 1900s.
Ten distances, from 80km for the serious walkers (Cape Town to Simon’s Town) to 5km for the whole family, and a nostalgic new route – the 12km Green Point Park Reverse Fan Walk – start at various venues around Cape Town at different times. All routes end at St George’s Grammar School in Mowbray, where there’s a full-day carnival with live music and entertainment from funny guy Stuart Taylor.
All proceeds from the event go to the Steenberg Foundation, Nazareth House and the Breast Cancer Fundraisers. Last year, more than a million rand was raised.
