On the 24th of June 2017, 14 members of the Swimfit Pretoria Squad swam the Drakensberg Polar Bear challenge.


The swim takes place every year in the picturesque Dragon Peak resort. The swim is held yearly in aid of the Escourt animal shelter. Entry fee is R50 per person and a bag of dog food.

Swimmers brave a 100m or 25m open water swim in the 5 degree waters without a wet suit.

The entry fee include soup  and a roll, a certificate and many lucky draw prices.

Join us next year for this fun event.
