This summer we’re running the #FeelMore challenge, celebrating the freedom to enjoy walking properly for the first time in months!
As the days are longer and the weather is brighter, now is your chance to head out for those long summer hikes in the hills or gentle strolls along the coast.
Whether you're broadening your horizon in the Scottish Munros, chasing the glow of those summer sunsets or taking extra moments to stop and listen to the sounds of the forest or a nearby stream, we want to see how you #feelmore this summer and we have teamed up with Cotswold Outdoor to offer some fantastic weekly prizes to be won!
With a new theme each week to inspire us all to get outside and enjoy the full sensory experience of walking in nature, there are plenty of chances to get outside and get involved. Send us your photos and videos and each week and our #FeelMore ambassadors will be picking their favourite entry to win a fantastic prize to take on your walks.
Enjoy the silence
While you explore new routes and reach new heights this summer, enjoy the silence and take in the beautiful scenery all around you. Walking and talking with friends and loved ones is wonderful, but there is also something magical about enjoying the silence of nature.
When we're adventuring outdoors, we can get caught up in the distance and the challenge that we can forget to take time to appreciate one of the greatest gifts nature can offer us - a quiet escape from the stresses of our often busy daily lives and a place to hear our own thoughts. This week's theme is to remind you to enjoy the silence the outdoors can offer us, to take time to enjoy those quiet moments in nature, allowing us to experience that feeling of letting go and focusing on the present.
We'd love to hear about your experiences of enjoying the silence on your walks this week! Or if you're hiding from the storm this week, share a photo of your favourite place in the UK to get out on foot and enjoy the silence. Tag @ramblersgb and #FeelMore in your posts and stories for a chance to Win a Leki Journey single trekking pole from Cotswold Outdoor!
Judging this week's challenge competition is Ramblers #FeelMore Ambassador, Elie Gordon. Wildlife photographer, nature wanderer and earth lover, Elie loves getting outside on foot and is passionate about inclusivity in the outdoors. Follow Elie's adventures outside on her instagram.
