For one year only, Lilyfontein School will be adapting the famous Tomato Trot & Cycle to a #TROT-Lite, virtual version. The purpose for this is to ensure the event still takes place, but in a different format. This is due to the impact of COVID-19 and the unpredictability around managing events within these restrictions.
The Lilyfontein Tomato Trot & Cycle is the school’s biggest fundraiser. Enter and support Lilyfontein School. Get your TROT on and start your virtual event with us.
