For swimmers by swimmers – new issue of Outdoor Swimmer Magazine out now

Outdoor Swimmer is an independent magazine published by swimmers for swimmers. And just to prove it, the new issue has our sales executive Joanne Jones on the front cover! The shot was taken at this Easter’s 2Swim4Life event where myself, Joanne and Outdoor Swimmer founder Simon each swam eight miles over 24 hours in a 24-hour, 24-mile relay.

Whether you are a wild dipper or a marathon swimmer, grab a copy of our June issue for some summer swimspiration. Order your copy here or save 21% on the cover price and subscribe now.
