Team relay sure to impress at open water swim in 2019

The Western Cape’s premier open water swim is sure to be a crowd pleaser both in the elite race and team relay.

The event celebrates its 5th anniversary at the majestic Eikenhof Dam near Grabouw on 17 February 2019.

The 2019 Sanlam Cape Mile offers two exciting distances: a 1 mile (1.6 km) and a refreshing 500 m swim. Categories that can be entered include: a 1 mile, 5x 1 mile charity Swim, 500 m and 500 m team relay (x4 member team).

“The 5th annual Cape Mile is the perfect event to get the New Year started,” says Michael Meyer, managing director Stillwater Sports.

“The event will take place the third weekend in February when weather conditions are at its best and the water is sure to be warm.

“To date the elite race has been the source of much excitement with the men’s winners being crowned as a result of a nail-biting sprint finish (in 2015, 2016 and 2017). This is a definite crowd pleaser.

“Adding to the excitement is the Cape Mile’s 500 m team relay,” continues Meyer. “Special moments are enjoyed most when shared.

“The 500 m team relay is ideal for close-knit families, friends, schools, clubs and companies looking for the ideal team building exercise.

“The team needs to consist out of four swimmers who will each swim 500 m.”

Expect high energy and lots of excitement. Spectators are encouraged to join in on the fun. The festival village at the Elgin-Grabouw Country Club will be a hub of excitement with good food, great music and a spectacular atmosphere. We look forward to showcasing just how exciting and rewarding the sport of open water swimming can be.”

The first three teams in the 500 m team relay will take home a prize of R5 000, R3 000 and R2 000 respectively.

Date: Sunday 17 February 2019

Venue: Eikenhof Dam (Elgin-Grabouw Country Club)
