Stillwater Sports announced a prize purse of R50,300 (US$4,371) for the inaugural Sanlam Cape Mile in February 2015.

Together with sponsor Speedo South Africa, the new 2-race event (500m + 1.6 km) will be held at Eikenhof Dam at the Grabouw Country Club on February 14th 2015.

We are very excited to be able to offer a substantial prize purse for the inaugural event,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports. “Due to the superb support of event sponsors we are able to offer prize money to the top ten swimmers in the Elite Male and Female categories, while the school with the top five swimmers and the school with the most swimmers will also be awarded for their gallant efforts. We would especially like to encourage the participation of as many schools as possible as this is where the future of the sport lies. The Sanlam Cape Mile will be a well-organized, safe mass swim that is ideal for the whole family.
