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!
