*** NEW DATE FOR THE TRU-CAPE MILE ***
2 May 2021
Grabouw Country Club, Grabouw
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and resultant limitation on public gatherings, this year’s Tru-Cape Mile is postponed to 2 May 2021. This is due to the fact the country’s lockdown regulations still do not permit us to host an event of our size. Since no new information is available on when the lockdown level will be reviewed, we have decided to push the date forward until we have more certainty on regulations.
Our main goal is to have a successful and enjoyable event given the challenging circumstances, and we believe it is still possible this year! With the extra time, you can be sure that the team at Tru-Cape Mile will be conspiring for an even more incredible & exciting event for you! Another silver lining? You have one extra month to train, so we expect some serious game faces by the end of March!
Athletes who have entered the event thus far, as well as all of those on our mailing list, will receive a formal, detailed email this week. Thank you for your ongoing support, patience and understanding!
*** IMPORTANT ***
Should the event not be allowed to go ahead on the 2nd of May due to Covid-19 restrictions, we will move it out to a date towards the end of the year.
Should we cancel the event due to Covid-19 restrictions, you will have the option of an 80% refund or transfer of your entry to the 2022 event.
This year's Tru-Cape Mile at the stunning Eikenhoff dam will cater for swimmers of all ages. Swimmers can choose to do the famous Mile, or do multiple Miles starting with each of the 5 starting batches. Following the Mile, there will also be a fun 500 meter dash, with a (perhaps more competitive) team relay option.

This event supports team entries for certain classes, but teams must consist of 4 participants per team.
