Documented Swims

The MSF Documented Swims project aims to:

  • display exceptionally well-documented marathon swims
  • develop and describe best practices for documenting marathon swims
  • provide a venue for peer-review and authentication of independent marathon swims

Don't let your swim be lost to history! MSF Documented Swims is the gold standard of marathon swimming documentation.
