The people listed below have all successfully completed the Channel Swimming Challenge - congratulations!

The Channel Swimming Challenge is a project by artist Ellie Harrison, which is open to people from all over the world to take part in. The challenge is to swim the distance across the English Channel (34 kilometres) - by recording and adding together all the lengths you swim at your local pool.

There is no time limit for the Challenge, you may swim at you own pace and simply log your swims as you go. If you would like to take part, please order your own Channel Swimming Challenge Logbook and get started today!
