IMG_7123Hello! My name is Paige Christie and I am a U.S. Marathon Swimmer. I am sponsored by GRRRL Clothing, BRL Sports Nutrition, Knuckleheads Apparel, Vermont Peanut Butter and VOMAX.

On August 24th 2014,  I successfully completed a solo crossing of the English Channel in 12 hours and 55 minutes. I was one of less than 100 American women to ever accomplish this feat. Two years later, on July 2, 2016, I swam the world’s longest marathon swim, 120 miles of the Hudson River, in an event called 8 Bridges. I was the 6th and youngest person ever to ever accomplish this daunting feat (first from my home state of MA). I was the 2016 Eagle Tribune Sportsman of the Year, and was a 2018 Inductee into my high school’s Athletic Hall of Fame!

In 2015, I was the Captain of the Smith College Swimming and Diving Team and Smith College 2015 NCAA Woman of the Year.

I have been swimming competitively (USA Swimming year round) on a club team called Crimson Aquatics, Boston, since I was 7 years old. I have achieved national-rank, and have always thrived on distance events. I have been featured in the Boston Globe, Swimming World Magazine, SwimSwam, USA Swimming, the Eagle Tribune, YouTube and various other news outlets.

I am currently a law student and reside in Southern California. I am still active in the marathon swimming world serving as coach and swimmer-support during marathon swims. I am a Red Cross CPR and Lifeguard Certified Swim Instructor (from ages 3 yrs to adults who want to learn to swim), and coach triathletes and USA competitive swimmers during one-on-one technique training sessions.

Thank you for checking out my blog, and thank you to my family and friends for the love and support!
