ABOUT

WHAT IS THE MAGOEBAS ULTRA TRAIL?

The Magoebas Ultra Trail is a premium trail running event hosted in the magical Magoebaskloof Valley in Limpopo, South Africa. The current flagship event of the Magoebas Ultra Trail, is the Magoebas Forest Marathon. 

There's an African proverb that says it takes a village to raise a child and we are of the view that it takes a village to run an ultra trail.

At the heart of the Magoebas Ultra Trail is its people, community, breathtaking natural beauty, vibrant authentic Limpopo energy and its epic trails and views.

This is more than just a trail event for us. The vision is to promote local establishments and businesses in the Magoebas area by sports eco-tourism.

You have to come and experience the authenticity and unsurpassed beauty of this place for yourself. What better way than on your own two feet with your 'village' and loved ones cheering you on?
