The heated swimming pool, designed according to the latest technologies, is the pride of the city-hotel «Barkhatnye sezony». It attracts not only those who like to relax and soak in warm water, but also professional athletes. 

So, on October 21, 2021 at 0:00 in the framework of the ultratriathlon challenge #the longest day, Evgeny Nikitin (@e.nikitin_official) chose the pool of the city-hotel «Barkhatnye sezony» for the start! 

Evgeny Nikitin will overcome the distance of the Double IRONMAN ultratriathlon: 7.6 km - swimming, 360 km - cycling, 84 km - running. For the first time in his life, an athlete will have to move without stopping for more than 20 hours. This is a real test of human endurance and fortitude!

Part of the running distance will be held with a blindfold, accompanied by a guide in support of fundraising for the charity fund «Sport for Life» as part of a unique project that unites people with visual impairment and sighted amateur athletes «Marathon in the dark»
