Ebenezer Mile online entries now open


Online entries for Ebenezer Mile 2020 scheduled to be hosted at Old Smokey Club House at Ebenezer Dam just outside Haenertsburg on 21 March are now open.
Organisers indicated that the event would continue despite low water levels and that interested parties should register online soonest.
Ebenezer Mile is Limpopo’s only open water swim sanctioned by Swimming South Africa and organised by the Rotary Club of Haenertsburg.
This year’s event marks the 20th anniversary of the Ebenezer Mile and promises to be yet another fun-filled event for amateur and professional swimmers as well as supporters.
Serious swimmers can enter for the traditional mile (1 600 m) or the 3 000 m while a fun swim of 500 m will also be hosted for those looking to just enjoy the water.
A variety of food stalls and beer garden are guaranteed to add to the joyous atmosphere.
The first race is set to start at 11:00.
