National GetOutside Day
26 September 2018

National GetOutside Day is taking place on 30th September 2018 and has been organised in partnership with a number of different parties including the Ordnance Survey, outdoor activity providers and conservation organisations to provide inspiration and activities with the aim of getting more people off their sofas and outdoors.

There are opportunities to meet OS GetOutside Champions such as Ben Fogle, Sean Conway, Kenton Cool and Mel Nicholls at one of the National guided walks exploring the Peak District or Shropshire. And with a selection of walks to join, there's something to suit everyone.
