February 23 @ 16:00 - February 26 @ 16:30
BIG NEVA CUP IN THE COMFORT OF “STRELA” ROWING CLUB
With support of the city government, a non-freezing 25 m ice pool of 6 lanes will be build on safe pontoons next to the peer of the Tyukalov Water Sports School. Like in 2022, the strong start ladders, sturdy turn boards and clear lines of underwater navigation will provide the best conditions to the winter swimmers for reaching their top performance levels. At swimmer’s disposal are warm changing rooms, hot showers and a sauna right in the building of the sport school. Socializing with friends in a hot tub will add more endorfines after the ice swim.
As winter swimming continues it’s way to the big sport, Big Neva Cup 2023 will score for the 5 events: St. Petersburg Winter Swimming Federation Championships (a prototype of future St. Petersburg official championships, a list of candidates to the city winter swimming sport team will be formed based on the results in this event), St. Petersburg Winter Swimming Federation’s Veteran Championships, the 5-th Stage of Russian Winter Swimming Federation Cup, the 1-st Stage of Russian-Belorussian Cup of the Commonwealth, and Morzherun – a combination of hardening run and an open water styled ice swim that became highly popular among health nuts.
The city goverment will provide safety to the swimmers. Resque divers and ambulance team will be on service at the edge of the ice pool.
The Russian Ministry of Sport will provide visa support for foreign swimmers.
