Swimming in Pécs Lake in Orfű


On 2nd August 2020 Open water swimming competition in Orfű was organized in Pécs Lake. There are two distances: 1.8 km = swimming across the lake and 4.2 km =swimming around the lake. Orfű is a very famous touristic place, it is located next to Pécs City and it is surrounded by hills. This is not real competition, since there is no award ceremony, it is more like a swimming event. This year only online registration was possible to reduce contacts, because of the Covid19 situation. At this location I always swim 4.2 km distance because who swim 1.8, he has to walk from registration (and finish) point to the start. Swimmers on 4.2 km race have start and finish (almost) in the same location.
