NYC Swim, Marathon Swimming Hall Of Fame Organization

The NYC Swim was inducted in the Class of 2010 by the International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame as a Honoree Club & Organisation.

NYC Swim is the premier organizer of open water swims in the waters around New York City. Since 1993, its events have attracted over 12,500 participants in more than 125 events from 1K to 28.5 miles.

NYC Swim’s events are the ultimate tour of New York City, as they highlight New York landmarks including swims alongside the Brooklyn Bridge and the Statue of Liberty; around Manhattan and Governors Islands; and a marathon tribute to the pioneering American swimmer Gertrude Ederle. With its growth and popularity still on the rise, NYC Swim has revived a local aquatic tradition that was abandoned for almost a century.

NYC Swim’s events include the world-famous 28.5-mile Manhattan Island Marathon Swim, one of the world’s top 100 open water swims, as well as the Great Hudson River Swim, Liberty Island Swim, Stars & Stripes: Aquathlon and Swim
Aquathlon, Brooklyn Bridge Swim, 10K New York Pro Swim, Governors Island Swim, 10K Little Red Lighthouse Swim and the 17.5-mile Ederle Swim.
