October Outdoor Fest date announced

A packed programme of events will offer something every day of the festival for outdoor enthusiasts of all ages and levels. The purpose of the event, as in previous years, is to raise badly needed funds for the Langdale and Ambleside Mountain Rescue Team.

The events programme includes a range of guided walks, opportunities to test equipment, workshops, special promotions and competitions as well as an evening with Alan Hinkes OBE and a lecture from Mick Fowler in conjunction with The North Face called ‘On Thin Ice’ (which is also the name of his new book).

Experts from the major outdoor brands, including Berghaus, Craghoppers, The North Face, Regatta, Silva and WL Gore, will be at the week-long event offering advice on equipment.

Says Paul Gaynor, Gaynor Sports’ managing director: “The October Outdoor Fest has gone from strength to strength since its launch in 2002. Last year’s event attracted high visitor numbers whilst raising £4,500 for the Langdale and Ambleside Mountain Rescue Team. The event also looks at building and embracing the existing links between the outdoor industry and the public.

“We believe that our event has something for everyone and is apparelled by anything else on the outdoor map this autumn and are very grateful for the support and commitment we receive from the UK’s leading outdoor brands, suppliers and distributors.”
