We will have three days of swimming and eight distances (including relay races), everyone will have a chance to participate in several swims. We will have a tent camp with all the relevant rituals. We will have trainings and lectures from the best guides to the world of swimming. We will have children starts (now for sure!). There will be time to socialize, get acquainted and swim freely without chips and caps.

Seliger vista points

Seliger is one of the most beautiful lakes in Russia. The first color picture in Russia was taken by photographer Prokudin-Gorsky. The swim will start at the small and beautiful Jiten monastery. We will finish the distance near Nilo- Stolobenskaya Island. This place is simply amazing: just like a piece of classic Saint Petersburg taken and raised in the middle of the lake. There is no large cities or any kind of production close to the lake. And the favorite part is that you can reach this great place from Moscow or Saint-Petersburg by car in just a few hours on a decent road.

It was just my second start in open water, but all along I involuntarily paid attention to the sincerity and professionalism of the organizers, the general atmosphere. And even the forced cuts in distances and changes in the tracks, thanks to the timely notification and human attitude of the orgies to the swimmers, could not spoil the holiday. Water and everything-everything there were very warm and cool! Thanks to my favorite coach and friends from #mevis for dragging me into all this, #xwaters for a sea of impressions and cool medals, and @maria.shalneva for a cool photo - now I have something to boast of! It seems to me, I had a good celebration of one year since the day I started learning to swim. I improved my personal time - #seligerswim was a success!

#Seligerswim and mass start for a mile is fun, it's beautiful, it's an opportunity to stumble at the finish and not to fall down, it's when people swim above you, and you're above people, it's when the water temperature is +14 and you're warm, this is when no one wants to concede, this is when all their and all together! And this is your sport! Thanks Sasha @alexander_bazanov, it was cool!

X-WATERS, thank you! It was a real sport holiday. And this holiday was successful no matter what. And it seems to me that this holiday can be safely called a family holiday and, perhaps, this is the most important thing. This is how the promotion of a healthy lifestyle and purposefulness should take place. I am glad that I managed to visit this holiday.

It's been several days, and Seliger does not let me go... I'm browsing through photos again, and each of them gives me a smile. It was really great. I really want to come back and ... do it again!

The more you wait for something, the faster it passes. The trip to #SeligerSwim was like a mini vacation! Over the weekend we drove 1300 km, and I swam about the same number in meters. In the first photo, it's the first try of water, which is very fresh, on the second one, I seem to picture the size of the catfish in the local ponds, and then the finish corridor, our glade with a samovar, the pre-start briefing and the actual swim. I'm the 20th out of 77 finishers and 11th in my age group (30-39 years). Eh, if I only knew I would have pushed myself to get into top 10. It was cool!)

Swim to save little Evgeniia’s life!
Dear friends, opening the registration for children's swims we would like to help 5-year-old Evgenia Belikova, the niece of our colleague Anna Gavrilova.

  A year ago, she was diagnosed with a malignant tumor - nephroblastoma (kidney cancer) with lung metastases. At first, treatment in Moscow helped, and the disease was almost defeated, but then something went wrong and a relapse occurred. Lung metastases progressed despite treatment. At a certain point, our doctors said that they did everything, and there's no medication in Russia that can be used as treatment for Zhenya. The girl’s parents could not accept such a verdict and searched around the world for a doctor who could help and save the child. They were invited to hospitals in Spain and South Korea, but since there were more flexible financial requirements in Korea, Zhenya and her mom went there for treatment.

  The second block of chemotherapy has provided visible positive results. Just within 1 month metastases decreased by 50%. Doctors in Korea believe that Zhenya has a chance of recovery! There is still a long way of treatment ahead - new chemotherapies, an operation to remove foci of metastases, bone marrow transplantation and radiation therapy. A lot of money is needed for everything, but Zhenya cannot get any support from charity funds. They refuse to help because of treatment abroad or because they consider her an unpromising patient. It is so unfair when your child has a chance of recovery, but you cannot use it because you've got no money.

Sport is not only about winning and achieving. It is also about common touch and team spirit. We would like to support Zhenya Belikova and make our contribution. We don’t want to waste a minute on difficult campaigns and crowdfunding, so we ask you to transfer the entire registration fee for the children's swim directly to the Zhenya's mom bank account. It can be any amount starting from 1000 rubles.

For registration fill in the Google form and attach the receipt file.

After the transfer, save the receipt to the memory of your mobile or other device.

You can also help this family without taking part in the swim.
