Marina Mile

Event Info

2020 event - Sat 3rd April 2021

The Marina Mile has become one of the bigger open water swim events in South Africa, resurrected in 2002 when Yvonne Lentinello and Brenton Williams held the event which was won by Port Elizabeth swimmer David Glover.

Eastern Cape swimmers have dominated the Mile ever since with Matthew van Der Burg, Philip Kuhn, Byron Lockett, David Marais, Michael Marais and Chris Van Der Sande all having won the event.

Two women have dominated the Marina Mile, with National swimmers Velia Janse Van Rensburg and Jessica Roux both being multiple winners at Marina Martinique.

Marina Martinique is a perfect open water swim venue due to the protected canals and pollution free salt water canals.

Join us in Jeffreys Bay over the Easter Weekend as we become part of the Easter Festival.
