EVENT DETAILS

You will remember this summer forever! 

You can swim across the pearl of Central Asia - Lake Issyk-Kul.

On the northern coast of the lake is located the village of Toru-Aygyr. Its name is associated with the legend of friendship and devotion. A boy named Bakyt had the ability to train beautiful horses. In exchange for parental land, he received a foal and made him a beautiful race horse, which he named Toru-Aygyr. The former owner of the animal regretted that he had exchanged the steed for the ground, and stole it. The horse was hidden on the other side of the lake. But the animal could not stand it and ran to Bakyt. According to the legend, Toru-Aygyr from the southern coast of Issyk-Kul swam to his master on the north and gave up the spirit on his hands.

The swim route runs along the legend from the south to the north shore of Issyk-Kul. 
14 km of swimming in the open water of the lake, which is proudly located among the Tian Shan mountain ranges.

The swim limit is 20 single swimmers, who will start the swim from the southern shore and end up on the north shore of Issyk-Kul. In the swim, participants can optionally use one-piece suits.
