Sunday 30th September 2018 is the first ever National GetOutside Day.
Organised by Ordnance Survey with the aim of getting 1 million people active outdoors across the UK , it sees a huge range of events taking place across the country in a bid to improve the health of the nation by getting more people, more active, more often. You can join an event near you, or create your own adventure outside with family and friends.
Ben Fogle, GetOutside Champion, broadcaster, traveller and adventurer said, “We want to get everyone moving and people should spend more time outside. You’ll feel better for it. When I’m outside I smile more, and it’s the one place that’s repeatedly proven to be good for both body and mind.”
To help you get inspired ahead of the big day, we’ve put together a list of recommended reads by Ordnance Survey’s very own GetOutside Champions. Read More National GetOutside Day Recommended Reading
