Nominate your Outdoor Swimmer Unsung Heroes

Swim the channel with the Mencap Marvels

Outdoor swimming is all about community, so we want to celebrate the Unsung Heroes who make a difference to your outdoor swimming world. Send us nominations for your Outdoor Swimmer Unsung Heroes and the successful heroes will be featured in Outdoor Swimmer magazine. Whether it’s a member of your club or group who works tirelessly behind the scenes, a swimmer who inspires you on to greater things (and swims), your group’s best baker, a campaigner, an inspiring coach… nominate whoever you think deserves recognition for their contribution to outdoor swimming and the outdoor swimming community.

Email editor@outdoorswimmer.com to tell us who you nominate and why.
