On average the 3rd weekend of October annually, over 2000 swimmers compete in this event and each year’s swimming spectacular promises to be bigger and better than ever before, maintaining its reputation as the premier event on the local open water calendar – thanks to the continued sponsorship of Dischem, Sun City, and a host of other sponsors.
Soaring temperatures and African sunshine aren’t the only things that sizzle at the annual Sun City Swim – our swimmers put in sizzling performances, turning up the heat, achieving personal bests and proving that whether in the pool or open water they always give of their best.
With this event also catering for the 600m Fun Swim, it is a great opportunity for all of our younger and upcoming swimmers to be able to participate, as well as to get parents to shed the winter blues and get them back in the water as well. A fantastic family event!
It is wonderful to see each and every swimmer cross the finish line, heartwarming to see the looks of accomplishment on the younger kids’ faces, and fantastic to see all the hard work paying off as the older kids use this swim as an Open Water training ground for the upcoming Midmar Mile in February each year.
It really is true what they say, “the family that plays together, stays together!”
