MyOutdoors

I had often visited Decathlon stores when on holiday in France and had always been impressed by their range of sporting equipment. Their own brand clothing seems especially popular over there, so when Decathlon-UK offered MyOutdoors a collection of their latest trail running gear to test, I was more than happy to volunteer my services.

Mountain runners Kilian Jornet and Tove Alexandersson took gold for Spain and Sweden in the SKY 2018 Skyrunning World Championships this weekend.

At just 2 years of age, toddler Sonny Reed has become the youngest outdoor brand ambassador, as premium outdoor children’s clothing and accessories brand, ISBJÖRN of Sweden, appoints Sonny to represent its range of durable and sustainable products for kids of all ages.

Walk the walk in stunning Innsbruck - for free

Autumn visitors to the Alpine city of Innsbruck can take a walk on the wild side in the company of experts thanks to a free* hiking programme.

This summer wasn’t the best time to be testing a pair of waterproof shoes. Record temperatures and a distinct lack of rain left many parts of the country dry as a bone. However, if you’re looking for water North Wales rarely disappoints, so after a couple of weekends camping in Snowdonia, Ward managed to give the Colombia Peakfreak Venture LT shoes a good walk out.

A major new brand advertising campaign by Berghaus breaks across the UK today. Rolled out through a mix of mainstream national media, the ‘Time to Get Out’ campaign signals a new direction for the brand. Designed to build a strong emotional connection with consumers, it addresses the stress of modern society and offers a solution.

With one month to go until the 2018 Women’s Climbing Symposium, we are delighted to announce Caroline Ciavaldini as the third headline speaker.

In August 2018, Mammut Brand Ambassador Tom Belz faced the challenge of his life. The 31-year-old has gone through life with one leg and two crutches since contracting bone cancer as a child, scaled Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. The project demanded everything from Tom and his companions, including blood, sweat and tears. The impressive movie of this great venture features on this year's E.O.F.T. program.
