About WTR

The WTR which is hosted by Stanford Lake College and brought to you by Copper Moon Events made its debut in 2014 and has become a bucket-list event for those who enjoy serious trail.

The signature 2-day Wolkberg Trail Run, consists of a 40km run on Day 1, with over 1820m of climbing that includes summiting the highest point in Limpopo, The Iron Crown; followed by a faster, slightly flatter 25km on Day 2. It takes place through the magnificent and almost untouched Wolkberg mountain range in the Magoebaskloof region of Limpopo.

You can also enter the second day only.


In addition to the Wolkberg Trail, Copper Moon Events introduced the shorter 2-day Woodbush Trail in 2019 (20km and 15km per day respectively); as well as two less taxing, fun one-day options: the 25km Wolkberg Voyage, and the 10km Wolkberg Ramble. Add hearty food, a festive race village with hostel and tented accommodation, a party on the Saturday night and true Magoebaskloof hospitality, and this is definitely a race you can bring your family and friends along with too!


Well Looked After

Runners will be well looked after during the full duration of the race, meals and accommodation are taken care of should they choose the ‘on campus’ option. You will stay in the very cosy Stanford Boarding Houses, with hot showers, DSTV and comfortable beds all included in the price.

Supporters Package

Please note that the on-campus option is for stage runners only, and not family members who are not entering the stage race. There is a 'supporters package' for such people but this package will only open closer to the race.

One Day only!

The second day of the stage race is also open to runners who would prefer just to enter one day only, with 25km and 10km and 5km options available. There is also a free kiddies race for the youngsters to join in the festivities.

This day is therefore perfect for the whole family, with plenty of activities, great food and drinks, and 3 race distances to choose from to keep everybody entertained.
