Tampa Bay Marathon Swim results

The Tampa Bay Marathon Swim is a 24-mile (38.6 km) swim across the length of Tampa Bay, Florida. It was pioneered in 1998 by Ron Collins who has organized it as an annual race since 1999. The swim typically starts from the beach at the Magnuson Resort in St. Petersburg, near the north base of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. The swim then rounds Pinellas Point and proceeds north on an incoming tide, finishing at Ben T. Davis Beach in Tampa.

The 2012 event was called off due to lightning. The 2016 event was called off due to high winds.
