Caroline Block inducted to International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame

Forum co-admin, MSF core team member, and Queen of the North Channel Caroline Block was announced today as a newly inducted Honor Swimmer in the International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame (

Over the past 5 years, Caroline has compiled a truly astonishing resume of long, cold, and tough solo marathon swims - including the first-ever two-way Lake George swim, four North Channel swims, the length of Cayuga Lake NY, and three different routes across the Santa Barbara Channel (Anacapa, Santa Cruz, and Santa Rosa). See for details.

Please join me in congratulating @thelittlemerwookie on this highly-deserved recognition. I look forward to doing so in person on May 7, 2022 in Naples, Italy :)
