At GO Outdoors we’re all about making the outdoors more accessible to everyone. Whether you’re a total novice or an seasoned explorer, we love to hear your stories of triumph and adventure. 2013 finished with a fantastic story of the Meek family and their quest to complete 100s of outdoor tasks (all here in the UK) to help their daughters stay clear of too much TV. If they can do it – what new challenge will you do in 2014?
We’ve listed 15 challenges below to get you started:
We asked our customers which were their favourite brands in 2013
2013 was a year of testing weather, who can forget the snow which seemed to stick around until April/May time, a wait for the sun and then being blasted with record heat for what felt like a pretty reasonable British summer time. As we stroll back through what has so far been quite a mild winter, we took to Facebook and Twitter to ask our customers – Which were your favourite brands of 2013?
To celebrate the opening of our brand new store in Doncaster, we’ve got together with Nuffield Health to offer a fantastic prize. You could win £250 to spend at the new store, 3 months Premier Membership at Nuffield Health OR a Mammut Polartec Fleece!
