The Ten Year Club

The MSF Ten Year Club is a different way of thinking about “endurance” in marathon swimming – recognizing swimmers who have completed at least one 10km or longer swim in at least 10 distinct years (according to LongSwimsDB data).

Leading the way are legends Irene van der Laan (42 years), Michael Read (42 years), Peter Larrad (40 years), and Kevin Murphy (37 years). Please note, this list will inevitably grow/change as we add more historical results.

Just keep swimming…. year after year after year.
