The highly popular Marina Mile will be taking place on 3 April 2021 and will be forming part of the Kouga Easter Festival.
The Marina Mile, presented by Nicholas Melck, had to be cancelled in December 2020 due to Covid lockdowns.
Marina Martinique is the venue of the Mile and is regarded as the open water swim capital of Africa, and recently hosted the South African Open Water Swim Championships, which was also an Olympic qualifier.
The Double Mile will be the first event of the morning and will follow the route of the actual mile with a second loop being swam by the participants.
The Half Mile is up next, followed by the bank-to-bank swim for the youngsters.
The Men’s Mile will start at 12 pm, followed by the Women’s Mile at 12.10 pm.
Unfortunately, due to Covid regulations, no spectators are allowed at the Marina Mile.
At this stage the Marina Mile is ONLY OPEN to pre-registered participants and will include the following events:
