Swim

The 3.8 km swim section is held in the crystal clear waters of the glacial lake Bohinj, starting from the small village Ukanc and traversing the entire length of the lake towards the finish at Stara Fužina. The bell tower of the succursal St. Paul’s Church, which stands at the edge of Stara Fužina, and supporters on kayaks serve as great orientation point for the athletes. It will be completely dark early in the morning and there also exists a high possibility of fog. The average water temperatures in September are around 15 °C nevertheless, depending on the weather during the summer season, temperatures lower than 13 °C are also possible. Due to low water temperatures it is mandatory to use a neoprene wetsuit and we highly recommend using a neoprene swim cap, swim socks and gloves. The unique shape of the lake enables spectators to follow the athletes from multiple small peninsulas.

To ensure maximum visibility and safety, all athletes will be equipped with glow sticks provided by the AlpineMan Xtreme Triathlon team. In case of bad weather conditions, the swim course will be replaced with a 10 km long run along the promenade from Hotel Jezero to Ukanc and back to the T1.

Section length: 3.8 km
Section length (in case of swim cancellation): 10 km, Ascent: 100 m
