SWIMSTAR is an open water swimming series held on the same weekend as the IRONSTAR triathlon races.
SWIM with IRONSTAR!
Be a SWIMSTAR!
The competition is held in the Imeretinsky port bay protected from the waves and currents by two breakwaters. The water area of the yacht port is well protected from storms, which ensures the athletes start in the most favourable conditions in comparison to the open sea water stage. The bay water temperature is 2 degrees higher than that of the Black sea open area. The water temperature in the bay varies from 17 to 25 C from June to October months. Wetsuits are allowed up to 24,6 C water temperature.
Start from the pier (Rolling Swim Start).
The whole course is well viewed so your fans will be able to watch you over the entire distance.
The swim will be held on the eve of IRONSTAR triathlon competition — so a crowd of several thousand people will support your start.
There is a rich weekend program for you and your support group:
- Sports EXPO Fair
- Lecture hall
- IRONLADY women's race
- STARKIDS children's race
- Large triathlon competition at the same day as SWIMSTAR
