Get a friend out­doors!

Trail (UK) - - BASE CAMP -

Do you know a friend who could ben­e­fit from some qual­ity time spent out­doors but who al­ways has an ex­cuse to wriggle out of it? Well, make sure Sun­day 30 Septem­ber is inked into their di­ary and get them signed up for Ord­nance Sur­vey’s first Na­tional GetOut­side Day!

The ini­tia­tive by OS aims to get one mil­lion peo­ple from across the UK ven­tur­ing out­doors on the last Sun­day of the month, by get­ting in­volved with a range of fun ac­tiv­i­ties.

Firstly, you can sign up to one of six na­tional guided walks, in part­ner­ship with HF Hol­i­days. Led by celebrities in­clud­ing Ben Fogle, Ken­ton Cool, Mel Ni­cholls and Sean Conway, three of these are in the Peak Dis­trict, with three more routes in Shrop­shire.

Wher­ever you’re based in the UK, you can also join one of the many re­gional walks led by OS am­bas­sadors and vol­un­teers or, fail­ing that, come up with your own out­door ad­ven­ture ac­tiv­ity. For more in­for­ma­tion and a load of out­door ac­tiv­ity in­spi­ra­tion and rec­om­mended self-guided walk­ing routes, visit www. getout­ – or turn to page 99. So, grab a mate, your kids or a col­league, sign them up to #GetOut­sideDay and help in­spire them to get out­doors, be­ing more ac­tive, more of­ten.

Ken­ton Cool’s wait­ing to join you on a walk – what are you wait­ing for?!
