The British Long Distance Swimming Association (BLDSA) is a voluntary organisation which was founded in 1956. 
We run a wide range of events with a clear progression path through the distances (both in fresh and salt water).

Members have the opportunity to compete, learn, crew, organise & help to manage events and the organisation if they choose to do so.

We were the driving force behind the development of Open Water Swimming when in 1986 FINA finally recognised our sport when Gunner Werner witnessed the “first world cup long distance swimming championships of 25km” which the BLDSA ran. The BLDSA has played a significant role in the formation of the rules governing Open Water Swimming around the world – both via helping FINA and IMSA in drafting rules for their conduct. We continue to have representation on the International Marathon Swimming Hall Of Fame board of directors.
