It’s time to sit back, relax and feel pretty damn proud of yourself! What an incredible event the 2021 Cable- way Charity Challenge turned out to be. We really can’t thank all of you enough for your tenacity and gener- osity!
With COVID-19 lockdown regulations changing at the drop of a hat, we weren’t sure what the event would be like or even whether it would be allowed to happen. This meant making some drastic changes to the event format of the past ten plus years by allowing participants to complete laps in their own time over a nine-day event window. We also relaxed the minimum laps required thereby making it more accessible to those of us who aren’t elite athletes.
On a bright and sunny day early in April 2019, 190 enthusiastic athletes took on the gruelling task of ascending Table Mountain as many times as possible in one day in order to raise funds for local charitable organisations. Together the athletes managed a total of 792 summits, which equates to 4,350km walked and total ascent of 600km climbed. These are seriously impressive figures and a huge thank you goes out to all who took part.
