Cableway Charity Challenge 2024

The Cableway Charity Challenge is a unique fundraising event held on the iconic Table Mountain. Runners, walkers, joggers, (anyone!) undertake to climb Platteklip Gorge as many times as possible to raise money for nominated, deserving charities helping vulnerable women and children in Cape Town.

On Race Day, participants climb Platteklip Gorge as many times as possible between sunrise and sunset. 

Corporate and school teams are pitted against each other with the objective of raising funds and taking home the prized floating trophy.

Some incredible elite runners have broken world records in this event, which we love, but this challenge is for anyone whether you climb Platteklip once or a hundred times.

All participants can go DOWN on the cable car for free during the event, which offers a much-needed breather between ascents.

Participants raise funds by getting their friends, family and colleagues to sponsor them on the Cableway Charity Challenge website. Challenge yourself and your friends and help us raise R1 million in pledges!

The Cableway Charity Challenge has been going since 2009 and is now in its 15th year. Many of our participants return year after year, forming friendships along the way and building a wonderfully connected event community.

Since inception of the event, close to R15m has been raised for 18 different beneficiaries across a variety of areas. From education and health to environmental and leadership projects, we are privileged to have made a small contribution to each of these deserving projects.

The event is run completely by volunteers who fall under the umbrella of the JDI initiative. The JDI team select and vet each of the beneficiaries and you can be assured that whether you participate or sponsor, all your efforts are going towards a worthy cause.
