Nutcracker Run – run 21km in April 2022


The Nutcracker Race is virtual race that can be run, hiked, walked or cycled in one go or over multiple days from any location you choose.  You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym or on the track and cycle where you love to. It is your own fantesticle race, at your own pace, and you time it yourself.

Register here. Entries close on 31 March 2022.

Why 21km (or 210km for the cyclists)?
