The Kingdom Swim is one of the longest marathon swims in the world. The multi-race charity swim event is held in Lake Memphremagog in the state of Vermont and serves as the 2013 World Open Water Swimming Association-sanctioned World 10-mile Swimming Championships. The event is organized by Phil White of the Northeast Kingdom Open Water Swimming Association. Its victors receive a beautifully hand-carved walking stick crafted by Bill Peck. The swim is held in conjunction with Kingdom Aquafest, including The Frontier Animal Society's Pet, Swimmers & Yackers Parade on Friday evening before the swim.

It is one of the World's Top 100 Open Water Swims and America's Top 100 Open Water Swims.
