The Western Cape’s most exhilarating open water swim, the Sanlam Cape Mile boasts two exciting distances: a 1 mile (1.6km) and a refreshing 500m swim.
“We are excited to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the Sanlam Cape Mile in 2019,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director Stillwater Sports. “We’ve been overwhelmed by the support received since the event’s inception with entry totals growing from 1000 in 2015 to over 2000 in 2018. We look forward to building on this trend by showcasing just how exciting and rewarding the sport of open water swimming can be. Our goal has always been to host a fun, safe swim that can be enjoyed by families and friends.”
Robert Thompson, Head of Marketing at Sanlam Investments added, “It’s been extremely pleasing to see how the Sanlam Cape Mile Swim has grown in popularity and numbers to become one of the top mile swims in the country. As Wealthsmiths we have a deep understanding to what goes into achieving this status and for that reason it is a natural fit to who we are and how we go about achieving the best results for our clients”.
