About WTR

The WTR which is hosted by Stanford Lake College made its debut in 2014 and has become a bucket-list event for those who enjoy serious trail. The event has evolved with many additions and changes over the last few years, but for the 2023 edition the decision was made to take it back its roots, rebuilding the evet on some its most loved foundations.

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.


The second day only options are to enter the 25km or a very scenic 10km race. Add hearty food, a festive race village, 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

Unfortunately this year the event does not happen over a long-weekend, which means, as per normal school, we will have our students on campus and in the boarding houses. It is therefore not possible to provide an 'on campus' option. Luckily there are many fine lodges, guesthouses, hotels and cosy accommodation options in the area surrounding Stanford Lake College.

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 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 2 race distances to choose from to keep everybody entertained.
