Dis-Chem Sun City Swim 2017


Get your sunblock and costumes ready – spring is around the corner.

With the sun rising earlier and more colour popping-up around us, we can tell spring is on its way. This also means that organisers are hard at work planning for this year’s Dis-Chem Sun City Swim on Saturday, 21 October 2017.

The 2017 swim will be the 20th edition of this exciting event. Since the first race in 1998, it has grown from strength to strength with only a couple of changes through the years.

We are grateful to have Dis-Chem and Sun City as our naming sponsors once again and will announce the other sponsors as we lead up to the event.

According to FINA rules:

  • Swimmers for the 3km swim should be over the age of 14 years old.

If your child is under 14 and would like to do the 3km swim, please contact the race office and they will assist you with the entry.

  • The 600m Fun Swim is for children under 4 years old.

Please, could you contact the race office for information regarding their entry.

Please note that you will not be able to enter online if your child falls under either of these two age parameters.

Registration will be at the Sun City resort on the Cabana Lawns ONLY on Saturday, 21 October, so remember to allow enough time to get to the resort, access the front gate and get to the lawns before your swim.

Unfortunately, there is no accommodation available at the Sun City resort for the weekend of the swim.

Entries will be opening shortly, so remember to enter before the closing date to get your goodie bag. All schools that wish to do bulk entries can contact the race office and will be sent the relevant documents.

If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact the race office via info@suncityswim.co.za or on 063 665 9706.
