Dear Cradle Cracker Runner,


Based on discussions with local authorities from Mogale City Municipality, we will unfortunately need to move this weekend's Cradle Cracker from 28 February to 28 March.



Our T&C's state that no refunds are given if an event is cancelled or postponed, however we will waiver that point and offer full refunds if you are unable to make the new date and would like a refund. If you would like to take part in the run on the 28th of March, your entry will simply be carried over to the new date.


For a full refund, please reply to the email sent on Wednesday the 24th at 14:00 stating that you request a full refund. This must be done before the 10th of March 2021.


We are sorry for the late notification and any inconvenience caused. The Cradle Cracker is one of our favorite events and we are looking forward to hosting it in March.
