The organising committee on Thursday decided after consulting meteorologists and police to hold the 38th annual swim across Lake Balaton on Saturday.
An important change, however, is that it is not possible to register for the swim at the departure point, as the numbers will be too great. Only those who register in advance by noon Friday at the website nevezes.futanet.hu may take part.
Swimmers can set off from Révfülöp on the north shore between 8 a.m. and noon on Saturday to cover the 5.2km distance to Balatonboglár.
More from the organisers:
During the cross swim there will be different time limits after certain distances.
Competitors have to get to the checkpoints at each kilometer until the given time.
A competitor who exceeds the time limit has to get up onto the boat, and can only get off at the finish in Balatonboglár.
Date and time:
Saturday, 1 August, 8 am
August 2; 8; 9; 15; 16.
The final date of the event will be announced 2 days before the race, after the approval of the authorities.
