Cake and swimming…

… swimming and cake. They just seem to go together so well.

Well now you have a reason for a piece of cake after your swim – the magazine dedicated to open water swimming – H2Open – is four years old this week.

That’s four years of promoting open water swimming to an initially sceptical public. Four years of news, articles about training, nutrition or great, iconic swims. Four years of kit reviews or venue descriptions. Four years of listings of British and international swims that people can enter. And perhaps most importantly four years of support for the community.

Well, a great idea has been formed to allow all the readers (and future readers) of H2Open to celebrate this:

Bake a cake and post a photo of it with the hashtag

You know what, as far as I’m concerned, you can buy a piece of cake too – just take a photo before you eat it and post it on Twitter or Facebook with the hashtag.


Go on, you know you want to!

Mmmmmm cake.

Disclaimer – I am now an ‘ambassador’ for H2Open. This unpaid role just means that I support the magazine and promote it to my swimming friends. If you’d like to subscribe to the magazine you can get in touch with me – or go here. I also occasionally write for the print and online editions – despite that, it’s still a great mag.
