Last year saw the first ever Get Outside Day. A day organised by Ordnance Survey and supported by their partners and Get Outside Champions, which aimed to encourage as many people as possible, especially those who might not usually do so, to give the great outdoors a try in whatever way they wanted to. Get Outside Day 2018 coincided with ukactive’s European Week of Sport, and was a great success. People of all ages and all over the UK reported back about their time outdoors with an explosion of activity around the #GetOutsideDay message on social media.
Get Outside Day 2019 is on Sunday 29th September (that’s next Sunday) and the excitement and buzz is already building. With over 21,000 people already signed up to take part, over 50 partners and 95 events on the Get Outside Day map, you can expect to see an explosion of orange, hear about people’s adventures and hopefully share what you have been up to outside with us and the Get Outside team. The theme this year is, ‘Will you go out with me?’ so, if you can find us, we would be very pleased to meet you and hear about your Get Outside Day.
We Blondes are in Team South #TeamSouth and are hoping the the South of England will be showing the rest of the world what getting outside is really about. We will be sharing our outdoor whereabouts and shenanigans throughout the day. Here’s what you can expect…
- Our very own orange explosion
- An early(ish) start
- Some Blonde adventures
- A bit of Blonde outdoor silliness
- A few locations you may or may not know quite well
If you want to join us and the nation outside on Sunday 29th September for National Get Outside Day (of course you do), Sign up, join your team and let us know how you are going to Get Outside! If you are a social media user, please could you make as much noise as you can on Sunday with the hashtag #GetOutsideDay and the following tags:
