Lake Seliger

Ostashkov city

5km, 10km, 1 mile, 5+5

What’s a Challenge?

Take part in one of Russia's iconic events and cross Lake Seliger – lost beautiful place between Moscow and St. Petersburg with picturesque islands and intricately indented coastline.
Lake Seliger is actually a system of lowland lakes, connected with each other by channels with unpredictable currents. So, be ready to demonstrate navigation skills in the open water.

Routes map

The event includes the following distances: 10 km, 5 km, 1850 m and 2x5 km relay races. The 10 km route and the first leg of the relay start on the beach near the Jiten Smolensk Icon Monastery in Ostashkov. The participants of the relay pass the baton on the Gorodomlya Island. A feeding point for 10 km race is also located there.

The 1850 m swimmers board the ship and start the race in front of the Nilo-Stolobensky Monastery. All routes have one finish gate on the beach at the Cape Svetlitsa. The tent camping and expo will also locate there.

Seliger vista points

The Seliger is one of the most beautiful lakes in Russia. The first color picture in Russia was taken here by photographer Prokudin-Gorsky. The swim will start at small and beautiful Jiten monastery and we will finish the distance near Nilo-Stolobenskaya Island. This place is simply amazing: just like a piece of classic Saint Petersburg has been taken and raised here in the middle of the lake.

There are no large cities or any kind of manufacture close to the lake so the water is clear and clean. And the favorite part is that you can reach this awesome place by car from Moscow or Saint-Petersburg in just a few hours on a decent road.
