The Discovery Big Walk is not just a day of fun and camaraderie but also an opportunity to give to those who are in need. This charity-driven event started in 1903 and commenced from Greenmarket Square in Cape Town, where the Head Office of the Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport (DCAS) is situated today. Indeed a historic event, as it attracted its very first female competitor in 1926. The Big Walk was only interrupted from 1940 to 1945 by World War II.
