The Midmar Mile is the largest open water swimming competition in the World and takes place at the very picturesque Midmar Dam which is close to Howick in KwaZulu-Natal. This years event takes place over two days - Saturday 9th February and Sunday 10th February 2019.

ENTRIES for the 2017 aQuelle Midmar Mile are now open at www.midmarmile.co.za. The race will take place 11-12 February 2017. For a limited time, an entry will cost you only R165.

Based on the interest already shown on our Facebook page and Twitter handle, we are expecting a bumper event. The team proved conclusively in 2016 that a fun, safe and exhilarating course can be constructed despite the prevailing drought conditions.
