Zip Zap Virtual Cape Town Marathon

Personal message

Become a Fund-Runner & support Zip Zap Circus' Zappers programme with every kilometre you run!

Zip Zap Circus is a free social circus school in Cape Town, founded in 1992, that offers free programmes to children and youth. For 28 years, we have managed to keep our doors open for over 2000 children each year across 10 programmes, with funding being sourced from grants, donors and shows.

This year Covid-19 has stopped us in our tracks so we have had to think out of the box and find innovative and exciting ways to not only generate income but also share the joy of circus magic during these times. Our programmes have been suspended since early March, yet with a carefully planned phased-approach, we're getting ready to open our doors for our Zappers.

We need your help to not only spread the circus magic but to support our fundraising to keep our doors open. Jump on the virtual Cape Town Marathon bandwagon! Run your chosen distance (5km, 10km, 21.1km and 42.2km) any time between 6 am and 1:30 pm on Sunday 18 October and be a part of the Zip Zap Fund-Runners!

Not only will this be the most rewarding run you've ever done, but all Fund-Runners will receive a goodie bag, AND there will be a lucky draw! Every R500 raised will get you an entry into the draw.

Once you have registered for your chosen distance on the Cape Town Marathon WebTickets page activate your BackaBuddy profile, share it with your friends and start fundraising.
