Cradle Cracker


Supporting charities and local communities. Help us make a difference!

We have been privileged to share your successes and triumphs over the last few years and we are looking forward to welcoming you back across that finish line. The Cradle Cracker has become a favorite event amongst runners who are looking to complete their first 5KM or going the distance and pushing their limits on the 28KM or simply getting a PB on the shorter distances.

If you are looking for a race that is fun, safe and challenging, then the Cradle Cracker is for you. The Cradle Cracker is a 4 race series that takes place in the Cradle of Humankind and starts and finishes at the Bothongo Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve. With 5 options to choose from, the Cradle Cracker has something to test all road fitness levels.

The Cradle Cracker also gives you the chance to get fit and healthy and at the same time, support our chosen charity and the local community school.
