Race Day

SO RACE DAY HAS ARRIVED....WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW?

  • The event will be taking place on the main slipway at Midmar Dam (where the aQuelle Midmar Mile finishes)
  • Registration is scheduled to open at 7am - but may well be 6.30am if we have had our coffee first...
  • The Registration Tent will be to the right of the slipway as you look at the water
  • Vendors will be set up on the left of the slipway
  • Pre-entered swimmers will be sent their race number in the week before Race Day - by Friday 29 Nov at the latest. Why so late? Well we decided to keep pre entries open a little longer this year which means race numbers will take a couple of days longer to be allocated.
  • Swimmers wanting to enter on the day can do so in the LATE ENTRIES section of the Registration Tent - you can pay with CASH or CARD
  • Support Swimmers may only register as such on the day for a fee of R50 per event PROVIDING they are entered into one race at the full price. If they are only swimming one event during the morning as a support swimmer, then they will have to pay full price for that one event. For full details please click here.
  • All swimmers will collect a race pack - this will contain your timing chip WHICH MUST NOT BE LOST. Swimmers will be billed for a lost chip, post event.
  • All swimmers will also be given an official event swim cap. For safety reasons, the cap must be worn for the duration of your swim
  • Capital K branded t shirts will be on sale in 3 different colours in sizes from 9-10yr to adult XL - you can pay with CASH or CARD
  • Swim Safe flotation devices will be available to borrow for races if necessary. They can be picked up on the way into the water and dropped back in the storage pen at the end of your swim. You will not be permitted to take the device in advance of the start of your event.
