Midmar Mile Reviews

More info about Midmar Mile

By far the largest open water swimming event worldwide, the Midmar Mile attracts over 10000 swimmers annually to the picturesque Midmar Dam situated in the KwaZulu-Natal midlands. The Midmar Mile entered the Guinness Book of Records in 2009 for the highest number of participants in a swim event and every year the numbers continue to climb.

The race was started by 3 friends in 1974 and has grown in popularity to become a major event on South Africa’s sporting calendar. The youngest to participate in the Mile was a 5-year old boy and the oldest an 89-year old gentleman.

Due to the vast number of entrants, swimmers are placed into categories to swim out in 5 groups at 3-minute intervals. There are a total of 8 categorised races spread over 2 days. The first event involves a swim for the disabled, participants in an ironman/woman event and for swimmers aged 71 and older. They are followed by relay events spread throughout the day and school, club and corporate teams are encouraged to participate. Day 2 races on the Sunday are the individual events split between boys and girls, and women and men. All finishers are awarded a medal. Depending on the dam levels, the start might involve a sprint from the shore into the water. Organised chaos!

Swimmer safety is a top priority and 120 lifesavers are on hand to aid struggling swimmers, while a Police dive team patrols the route.

Organisers offer a free training program on their website, so there’s no excuse for lack of preparation! Renowned TED speaker American Craig Dietz swam the event twice. He is limbless. A number of swimming Olympians arrive too, year-on-year, to take on the Midmar Mile challenge.

Note that the Midmar Dam lies within a nature park and visitors are required to pay an entrance fee.
