Ederle Swim results

The Ederle Swim was a 28 km (17.5-mile) race between The Battery (Manhattan Island) and Sandy Hook, New Jersey, named after Gertrude Ederle, who swam the route in 1925. It was organized annually by NYC Swim from 2006 to 2014.

The 2006, 2008, and 2010 Ederle Swims were held in late October, a time of year which made it one of the colder marathon swim races in the world. The 2011 Ederle Swim was held in the historically less common direction, from Sandy Hook to Manhattan. Several solo record attempts were also organized by NYC Swim during this era, and can be viewed on the New York Bay (solo) list. Special thanks to Michael Johmann for researching and compiling historical data on the Ederle Swim and earlier Manhattan-Sandy Hook swims.

After a hiatus following the closing of NYC Swim, the event was re-established by New York Open Water as the Ederle-Burke Swim in 2018.
