Ross Edgley Net worth: How Rich Is Ross Edgley?

Ross Edgley’s estimated net worth is between $1 million and $5 million. He made this money through his career as an extreme adventurer, ultra-marathon sea swimmer and author.

The Grantham native studied at King’s Grammar School in Grantham, England. He then gained a sports scholarship to study at Loughborough University’s School of Sport and Exercise Science, where he continued to train at the British Swimming National Centre.

A year into his scholarship, Edgley then retired from international competition and decided to transition into ultra-distance sea swimming instead, which the university supported through the National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine (an Olympic legacy project delivering education, research and clinical services in sport, exercise and physical activity).

In 2019, Edgley received an honorary doctorate from Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) in Lincoln, for his research into mental and physical resilience and continues to coach and lecture around the world as a leading expert in the science and psychology of adventure.

Ross Edgley holds multiple world records but he is best known for completing the World’s Longest Staged Sea Swim in 2018, when he became the first person in history to swim 1,780 miles around Great Britain in 157 days.

Voted Performance of the Year by the World Open Water Swimming Association, he documented his training, nutrition, theories and strategies and published them in his books titled The World’s Fittest Book (2018), The Art of Resilience (2020), and Blueprint: Build a Bulletproof Body for Extreme Adventure in 365 Days (2021), all of which became No.1 Sunday Times Bestsellers and have been translated into several other languages.
