Each year the Midmar Mile is held in February at the Midmar Dam north of Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. It is the world's largest open water swimming event. It draws thousands of competitors, from serious international athletes and Olympic medalists to purely recreational swimmers.
I have been swimming Midmar since 2009 when I was 10 years old, I completed my 10th consecutive year and 2nd 8 Mile in 2018, 28 miles since 2009. In 2019 I will complete my 3rd 8 Mile aiming to again raise AUD $1 200 for charity.
The 8 Mile entails swimming all 8 events, 4 miles a day over 2 days, every 75 minutes.
Please support me in raising money for this worthy cause.
