This year’s Tru-Cape Mile at the stunning Eikenhoff dam will cater for swimmers of all ages. Swimmers can choose to do the famous Mile, or do multiple Miles starting with each of the 3 starting batches. Following the Mile, there will also be a fun 500 meter dash, with a (perhaps more competitive) team relay option.

This year there will be a big prize for the winning relay team as well as a floating trophy. Get your team of 4 together to battle it out for the Tru-Cape Mile Team Award.

Wetsuits will be allowed.

Distances and Start times

Tru-Cape Mile (1.6km) – R250

There will be a number of start times and categories. Do 1 mile, 2 miles, 3 miles, 4 miles or all the events. The first mile will be at 08:00 and then every 1 hour and 15 minutes (1:15) after that. That gives everyone enough time to complete the course. You can select when you want to do your event/s. Start times are there to split events into equal sizes. If, as a parent, you want to swim with your child in an earlier group, you may do so.

There will also be a 500m team relay. Each team will have 4 members and it will take on the format of a real relay, not just adding of times. It will go down to the wire.

Registration and Late Entries

Registration and late entries will take place at the Elgin/Grabouw Country Club on the morning of the event.

Registration starts at 07:00.
