Week of Adventure

Posted by Luke Green

Are you ready to ditch your laptop/mobile/tablet and leave the masses behind to get outdoors this Black Friday weekend? Join us on a Week of Adventure as we look forward to #OptOutside this Black Friday.

In the last three years, 15 million people and 700 organisations have created a new tradition (pioneered by North American outdoor retail co-op REI) to #OptOutside on Black Friday. ​The average person now spends 95 percent of their life indoors. As a result our health and well-being are beginning to suffer, so it's time to get outside!

As a firm believer in life being better outdoors we want to encourage our customers to get outside over the Black Friday weekend instead of staying in and shopping. To help you find the products you need to #OptOutside in the lead up to Black Friday, we are running a Week of Adventure to showcase some of the different sports you can do with our Red Original range, giving you some inspiration so you can opt outside. Click on the images below to read the relevant blogs.

Furthermore to help celebrate you opting outside, we will be running a photo competition from the 23rd to 27th November where the winner (selected by you) will receive a £100 gift voucher to spend online at more details to follow!
