What's the challenge?

COVID-19 update.
Dear friends, we are closely monitoring the situation. At the moment, we are preparing to hold the swim on the announced dates.

Should you have other questions, please contact us via welcome@x-waters.com.



X-WATERS Kuzbass 2020 is the round of the X-WATERS World Championship 2020.

Kuzbass is the outpost of the Siberian conquest, the coal heart of the country. The lion's share of Russian coal is mined here, the most rugged miners in the world live here.

And... the fantastic taiga forests, the ski resort in Sheregesh and the Belovo “Sea” — one of the most famous places in the region.

It is the Belovo “Sea” that you are going to explore and swim.

Siberian people are living very far from oceans and seas, thats why call this man-made reservoir the “sea”.

This cozy resort with beaches, camp sites and fishing points is the favourite place for locals.

On the way to the event, you will admire Kuzbass’ nature in all its glory – mountains ranges and Siberian Alpine meadows.

You will be charmed by the blaze of color of Siberian nature and inspired to come back here again and again.

1 km distance starts in the Assol Bay. It passes the most beautiful closed part of the bay. It has a view on the nearest fields and villages.

3 km distance starts from a sandy and grassy beach on the opposite side of the Belovo Sea. Transfer to the start point is organized by buses. While swimming, you'll go past the entrance to the closed part of Assol Bay and finish on its beach.

6 km distance starts from the sandy beach in the Assol Bay. River view. Transfer to the start point is organized by buses. The distance has two parts with a check point ON THE SHORE. The first part crosses the Assol Bay area, turns right and goes to the 3 km distance start point, then passes the check point on the shore (as close to the water edge as the shore configuration permits) and then it repeats the 3 km distance.

The effective length of this distance is 6,000 m. The finish line is in the Assol Bay.

Siberia starts here.

Kuzbass is still a conservation area for Russians. Underground and surface coal mines, metallurgical and chemical plants. This is the image of the region known to everybody.

However, Kuzbass possesses unique tilias growing here since the Ice Age, forest-steppe areas and clean birch forests. In Kuzbass you can find mountain forests, Alpine meadows, clean rivers and lakes.

The Belovo Sea is an manmade reservoir which doesn't freeze even in winter. In 1955, the Belovo Regional Power Station was built here. In the same year a fish farm has been started breeding salmons, sturgeons, carps, catfish and other types of fish there.

Equidistant from the biggest cities of the region – Kemerovo and Novokuznetsk — , and situated fairly close to Novosibirsk, Tomsk and Barnaul, the Belovo Sea is easy to reach.

Just imagine: the last weekend of August, you will put up a tent near the water and participate in the exciting swimming event to say goodbye to the Siberian summer.
