THERE must be a reason why the Ebenezer annual open water swim held in March every year, keeps enticing loyal swimmers back year after year!

Rotary Haenertsburg has been organizing this event for the past 13 years, with the fantastic support of large national corporate sponsors and many smaller local companies and organizations alike.

Rotary Haenertsburg have evolved the management of this event into a professional and slick operation over the years and uses the latest timing methods.

Past swimmers and supporters alike rate the efficient organization, the friendliness of the locals and the beautiful surroundings and pristine water as among the best in the country.

It is a fabulous and enjoyable festive fun day for the whole family in the ‘great outdoors’.

The swimming is one thing – there is also a variety of food stalls, a beer tent and a great atmosphere at the venue of the Mountain Yacht Club on the Ebenezer Dam in Haenertsburg, Limpopo.

If you have not attended one of our ‘Miles’ before, here is the lowdown.

There are some swimmers who are fiercely competitive and super fit for this sport and participate in the national open water swimming circuit for their own personal achievements.

They either swim the exclusive 3000m or the popular Mile (1600m) OR BOTH!! Then there are the large majority who come out and swim for the fun of it , choosing the Mile distance or the easy 500m ‘fun’ course. Children of all ages can take part.

Got the picture? Come and see/swim for yourself and join us on Saturday 21 March 2015 for the next Ebenezer Mile Open Water Swim!
