GetOutside, stay local

Find your freedom outside

The outdoors is still open but we need to make sure we stay local, plan outings and don't attempt any activities we're not familiar with.

Our daily exercise during winter is more important than ever, so wrap up warm and enjoy frosty mornings exploring from your doorstep. Let's keep everyone safe and follow government guidance at all times.

Mix up your daily exercise with the ideas below, or download the free GetOutside Challenge Calendar to keep you motivated.

Share your outdoor lockdown adventures with us on social media.
