Arctic Swim

From Openwaterpedia

The Arctic Swim is an open water swimming in 6-8°C water that is touted as the The Ultimate Race At The Far Side Of The World, organized by X-Waters.


There are two distances: half mile and 1 mile. The starting point of both races takes place on a sandy beach on the shore of Teriberka Bay, Russia. The swimmers of half a mile race will take part in “mini-benidorm”, will swim around a cliff island and will turn back. The participants of 1 mile race will cross the bay and swim from New Teriberka to the Old one. The starts of two races will begin in different times so it is possible to take part in both races.


The results of ice swimmers without wetsuits will be separate. The status of an experienced ice swimmer must be proved by special documents.
