Embark on the captivating Crater Trail embedded just North of Pretoria. This remarkable site witnessed the impact of a meteorite, approximately half the size of a football field, leaving behind a landscape that invites exploration. On this day, participants have the opportunity to traverse trails that wind through a fantastical terrain, adorned with a diverse array of plant, bird and animal species characteristic of the Sourish-mixed bushveld.

Immerse yourself in the historical significance of this location, as the trail leads you around and down into the Crater, now transformed into a stunning lake measuring 1.4 kilometers wide and plunging to a depth of 200 meters. The event promises to be a unique experience, capturing the essence of history while guiding runners through the breathtaking and diverse landscapes that define the Crater Trail.
