The WTR made its debut in 2014, and is sure to become one of the most popular races on the trail running calendar in years to come.
The WTR is a two day stage race through the magnificent Wolkberg Mountains, summiting the highest point in Limpopo, the Iron Crown.
In 2015 the WTR became a member of the SkyRunner Series, which means that Day 1 is now an official SkyMarathon. Casual runners can also enter the second day only.
Entries for the stage race are limited to 150 runners, so enter now, and get training!
Runners will be well looked after during the full duration of the race, with meals and accommodation taken care of should they choose the ‘on campus’ option. They will stay in the very cozy Stanford Boarding Houses, with hot showers, DSTV, laundry services and comfortable beds all included in the price.
Please note that this option is for stage runners only, and not family members who are not entering the stage race. The Off Campus option is for stage runners who would prefer to organise their own accommodation for the weekend, and is perfect for those who would prefer to have their families around to support them.
The second day of the stage race is also open to runners who would prefer just to enter one day only. This day is perfect for the whole family, with plenty of activities, great food and drinks, and 2 race distances to choose from to keep everybody entertained.
For Sky Running enthusiasts and regulars, there is the option of just doing Day 1 of the Stage Race, which is an official SkyMarathon.
