What's the challenge?
That being said! The purity of water is better than any words evidenced by the richest underwater world of the reservoir, including not only trout and sturgeon, but also Mozambican tilapia, African catfish and even Japanese freshwater shrimp. All of them were brought here by people and took good use due to the fact that the Smolensk NPP heats water in the reservoir all year round and even in winter the temperature does not fall below 12 degrees. In October, we count on 20-22 C!
And this is the unique feature of the start: this is not an extension of the summer for which we are going to the seas, it is the warmest Indian summer that you can find!

3 km Participants start from the beautiful beach called "Stenka". They swim the distance, going around the buoys counterclockwise (swim on the right side, leaving the buoy on your left). Passing the buoy on the right is a strict and mandatory requirement. The finish is in the main event location (city beach).
5 km Participants start opposite the nuclear plant from the beach "Kukuevka", move along the navigation buoys counterclockwise (swim on the right side, leaving the buoy on your left). Passing the buoy on the right is a strict and mandatory requirement. Next, participants move towards the finish line, focusing on the shore landmarks and marker navigation buoys. The finish is in the main event location (city beach).
10 km From point to point! Participants start from the "bowl" of Troyanovsky discharge. A strong current literally takes you out to the reservoir. Then we move along the right bank and cross the reservoir to the bay "Kukuevka" for a meal stop. Next - to the finish line in the start camp on the city beach.
