About me

Gender MALE
Introduction Hi - My name is Mark Sheridan. I live near Sevenoaks in Kent (UK) and am a mad keen open water ultra-distance swimmer. I have completed many swims over 21 miles including 43 mile Lac Leman (4th solo ever & 1st Brit), the English Channel (twice), Loch Lomond (44th person), the Catalina Channel in California, Two-way Windermere, Lake Tahoe and SCAR to name a few . I currently serve on the committee of the British Long Distance Swimming Association (President 2017), am the Swim Secretary the famously gruelling 9-mile Champion of Champions and distance training camps. I was awarded British Long Distance Swimming Association's Swimmer of the Year in 2013 and also won the Global Marathon Swimming Federation's Barra Award for Best Year in 2015. Above all, I enjoy sharing my experiences to help others reach their goals and giving back to this wonderful sport on a voluntary basis. I currently hold the British record for Lake Tahoe solo which I set in August 2018 taking almost 90mins off the prior benchmark.
