Start with a short hike

For those woman wishing to get outdoors more often and become more adventurous, grab a friend, find a local hiking trail, and just start with a one hour walk. Over time invite another friend and find new hiking trails, just keep doing it. When you are ready, seek a more adventurous trail, hiking group, local hiking guide and explore more great activities in the great outdoors. Get amongst it.

If I'm outside I'm happy! Fell running, mountain biking, climbing or skiing I just love getting out and pushing myself as hard as I can. As a women in adventure, I have found female role models really inspiring and motivating. There are definite moments I have really doubted myself and considered packing something in or giving up, but it's at these points looking to someone I can relate to, be that a friend or pro, really helps. Though this project I would love to find more of this type of relateable inspiration as well as being part of the wider movement to help remove any barriers to participation.
