April 16, 2017 / by ironmike

OK, so swims in Russia are coming out of the woodwork, and I hope to do as many of them as I can. I recently remarked on a FB page about one of the swims,”Wow, a swim only 15k from my house?” Another swimmer responded that there are many more in the Moscow area, more so than I may know. And he sent me a link to a calendar.

Well, yes, there are more. What follows is a list of all the swims not too far from Moscow. I’m doing three of them this summer, and hopefully more next summer. (The swims I’ve signed up for are in italics and the distances I’m doing in bold.)
