The SPAR River Mile is Africa's oldest open water swimming event that started in 1924 by AE Murrell in Redhouse on the Swartkops River in South Africa. Richards swam his first River Mile in 1947 and is entered in his 60th event in 2013.

His streak of swimming in 60 SPAR River Mile events led to a nomination for the 2013 World Open Water Swimming Man of the Year.
