The IMSHOF is the global organisation that honours marathon swimmers, and contributors to marathon swimming.
Serpentine Swimming Club has been inducted into the International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame. The IMSHOF is the global organisation that honours marathon swimmers, and contributors to marathon swimming.
The Mission of the IMSHOF is to promote the benefits and importance of traditional and competitive marathon swimming as a key to fitness, good health, quality of life, and water safety.
With 82 successful solo Serpentine SC, English Channel swimmers (between 1957-2021), and an abundance of swimmers who have successfully swam other stretches of water, we can feel happy that our club’s values are recognised and appreciated by the IMSHOF.
We have been accepted by an organisation that recognises our positive focus on healthy qualities which include: endurance distance swimming in open water, water quality, water safety, knowledge-sharing, honesty and friendship.
We already have several members who are individual swimming honorees of the IMSHOF, and these include Gerald Forsberg (1912-2000), Rosie George, Alison Streeter, Nick Adams. Our sole administrative honoree is Colin Hill.
The induction ceremony will take place in Naples, Italy, on 7 May 2022.
