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. It consists of the Magoebas Forest Marathon that is hosted in March and the vision is to establish a 100 kilometer and 100 miler event, that will be the first of its kind.

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?

WHAT MAKES THE MAGOEBAS ULTRA TRAIL UNIQUE?

LIMPOPO'S ORIGINAL AND MOST AUTHENTIC FOREST AND MOUNTAIN ULTRA TRAIL

The Magoebas Ultra Trail is designed for every trail runner out there. It has the perfect balance between exhilarating technical single track and easy to run forest roads. It has the technical rush of dreamy single track descending through the forest but it also has easy open forestry roads. It has the perfect balance between being fully immersed in nature on your own and being surrounded by supporters and loved ones. It has elements of solitude and community - all in one.
