A Tremendous Prize Purse Increase For Sanlam Cape Mile

The Western Cape’s most exciting open water swim, the Sanlam Cape Mile will boast with a tremendous prize purse increase of R90 000, taking the 2016 prize purse to a total of R140 000.  Taking place at the pristine Eikenhof Dam at the Grabouw Country Club (Western Cape) on Sunday, 7 February 2016, the Sanlam Cape Mile is an exciting open water swim. Entrants can choose between an exhilarating mile (1.6km) and a refreshing 500m swim.  Managing Director of Stillwater Sports Michael Meyer says:  ‘We are extremely proud to be able to offer such a substantial prize purse increase for the second annual Sanlam Cape Mile.  Prize money will be on offer to the top ten swimmers in the Elite Male and Female categories.  The first finishers in these categories will take home R20 000.  With the Olympics taking place in Rio later in 2016, I am sure this prize money will come in handy.  Continuing our support of schools and clubs, we’re pleased to offer an amount of R6000 to the school and club that boasts with the most swimmers competing on the day. We are thankful to our title sponsor, Sanlam for their unwavering support without which the increased prize purse would not have been possible.’
