Swim across the Dnipro River and become a Legend!  Come swim the 10th annual Dnipro International Swim Marathon!

Since the 15th century there have been stories about Cossacks who swam across the Dnipro river – the biggest and longest river in the Ukraine. There are all kinds of beautiful, tragic and heroic stories of legends that have swum the river.

On July 13, 2019 you can join more than 500 heroes that will come together to swim across the Dnipro in one of its widest spots.

Amateurs and pros, man and women, adults and kids will find the appropriate challenge in Cherkasy. It won’t be easy, but isn’t it what you are training for?!

The Dnipro International Swim Marathon has become the first Ukrainian race, and 180th race overall, to join Global Swim Series!

The race is a straight point-to-point swim, No Laps! You swim straight from the eastern bank to the western bank.  It is a challenging race, but has a great atmosphere and a big celebration party at the end.

There are 5 distances for swimmers of all abilities:
LEGEND – 10KM
HERO – 5KM
SPRINT – 3KM
KIDS – 750M
SQUAD – 2x5KM (relay)

There is also:

EXTRAORDINARY SAFETY.  There will be 30+ motorboats, 50 lite boats (kayaks, sups), safety buoys provided to every swimmer for the race, insurance, ambulance, police and lifeguards. During 5 hours of the race, river navigation is closed: all ships and boats are stopped.

EASY NAVIGATION. We placed navigation buoys every 500m and build the shortest route.

GREAT ENTHUSIASM. The ultimate goal is to provide the best memories and experience for every swimmer, including: beautiful medals that will motivate you to get across the river; nice looking and top quality T-shirts and swim hats; as well as free professional photos and of course great finishing party, that will let you have fun with one of the best swim communities in the world!
