The Bosveld Mile

The Bosveld Mile
You are cordially invited to head to the Bushveld for the annual Pick n Pay Bosveld Mile, a fun event which takes place in a beautiful part of the country.

November 1998 saw the first Bosveld Mile being swum with a total of 20 swimmers taking part. In 2012 there were more than 700 entries. This swimming event is popular because it is set in a beautiful venue which attracts swimmers from various parts of our country, a venue where the green lawns go right down to the waters edge, where the water is clean and clear, and the ablution blocks are neat and tidy.

The Bosveld Mile is supported by many well-known open water swimmers. There are three age categories for swimmers: 13 years & under; 14-30 years; 31 years and up. But for those not feeling that ambitious there is also the popular Half-mile (800 m) with cash prizes for the first three male and the first three female swimmers. Come and enjoy the 3km and 5km event for the well-trained swimmers. Medals are awarded to everyone completing the event. There is also the 400 m fun event which also offers a medal for each swimmer completing the event (but no results or prize money).

Gauteng North life-savers will be on duty, and also well-trained Paramedics will be in attendance. Pancakes, as well as other food, cold drinks and coffee stalls will also contribute to creating a friendly, happy and relaxing atmosphere. So head to Bella Bella and enjoy the relaxing Bushveld atmosphere!

Directions
The event takes place at the Bela-Bela (formerly Warmbaths) Dam just outside Bela-Bela.
Follow the N1 either from Polokwane (formerly Pietersburg) or Johannesburg and take the R516 Settlers/Bela-Bela offramp. If travelling from Johannesburg, it is the second Bela-Bela offramp (the first is the R576 Settlers/Codington/Bela-Bela offramp). At the offramp, turn left. (Turn right if travelling from Modimolle (Nylstroom)). Continue to the robot. Turn right and continue into Bela-Bela. Turn left into Potgieter Street and right into Ritchie Road (the Thabazimbi road). At Chris Hani road turn left, go over a stop street and at the very next road turn right into Grobler Street. Go through the stop street where it becomes Robertson Road and continue through the next stop street. Travel approximately five kilometres out of town, and take the second Fish Eagle Bay entrance (it will say Fish Eagle Bay Boat Club) road to the left. Follow this road for about two kilometres to the dam. Look out for signs along the route.
The trip takes around one hour and 45 minutes from the northern suburbs of Johannesburg.
Please note that parking at the venue is limited.
