MyOutdoors

The BMC is proud to announce that four months since its public launch, the Mend Our Mountains: Make One Million appeal has passed the one third mark, having raised over £330,000 so far. 

The second Scafell Sky Race (SSR) brought not only a large international field of runners to the Lake District, but the strongest line-up of any UK mountain race so far this year.

Pentland Brands Limited has announced the appointment of three directors to head up its Berghaus, Team Sports (Canterbury & Mitre) and Fashion footwear brands (Ted Bakers & Karen Millen).

One of the world’s most accomplished climbers, Rick Allen,  believed dead after an accident on Broad Peak, has been found alive and is now at base camp after being spotted by a drone being flown from K2 Base Camp.

The fourth LSU again demonstrated both the allure of the Lake District and the international appeal of skyrunning, with runners representing Austria, France, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Poland and Romania (as well as Britain) all arriving in Ambleside.

To encourage others to get outside and do more ikWax are pleased to announce the #DoMoreWithNikwax challenge, that sees three world class athletes ride 7,000km, hike 7,000m and camp throughout Europe this summer, showing us that whatever the weather you can do more, with Nikwax.

OTS 2019 dates announced

Following the success of the 2018 event, the organisers of the Outdoor Trade Show (OTS) are pleased to announce that the 2019 show will go ahead at EventCity, Manchester from Tuesday 9th July to Thursday 11th July.  The decision follows exhaustive research with retailers and exhibitors with an overwhelming 85% preferring the week after OutDoor by ISPO (30th June – 3rd July 2019).

The organisers of Keswick Mountain Festival (KMF) have confirmed the dates for the 2019 event. Next year’s festival will run from 17-19 May, based at its now traditional site in Crow Park, and using a range of other venues and sites in the area for the various events and attractions. The dates were agreed after discussions with local stakeholders and sponsors and the festival will kick off a busy calendar of events in Keswick during summer 2019.

Usually I prefer to wait at least hundred miles before putting pen to paper on a pair of running shoes. However, with a lot of excitement in the press and on social me- dia about the new Graphene range from Inov-8, I thought I would share my initial thoughts after a few weeks running in the new Inov-8 TERRAULTA G 260 Graphene.

Trail Running the Torridon Trio

I was sitting motionless, on a step of the steep path down from Mullach an Rathain, too nervous to move, in case I should find out that the result of the fall I had just had was more than bruises and grazes. I held my left arm up in front of me. It had taken quite a knock as I’d tumbled face first down the hill and a large lump had appeared half way along my forearm.
