      La Traversée de Paris à la nage is an open water swimming race on the Seine, organized by the newspaper L'Auto and Georges Moëbs, which took place for the first time in 1905. It was then 11.6 km, from the bridge National at the Auteuil viaduct.

      From 1906, a split was made within the organization, and a second race, it "amateur", was organized concurrently, set up by Moëbs and the newspaper Les sports.
