Go Outside
Need a pick me up? #GoOutside this Autumn with Kent Sport and Explore Kent!

This Autumn, Kent Sport and Explore Kent are joining forces to encourage the great people of Kent and Medway to #GoOutside!

The weather’s still looking up and the addition of crisp autumn leaves and those fantastic colours are a great reason to go outside. From family days out, to cosy walks with the reward of a roaring pub fire and a pint, there are tons of reasons to explore our slice of the great British countryside. Plus with Christmas just around the corner, if you’ve got an outfit to get into, this is the perfect time to get active, look great and earn those treats. So make the most of what’s left of the sunshine!

Don’t hibernate, #GoOutside!

Clive Pearman, Deputy Cabinet Member for Environment and Transport explains;
In the Autumn and Winter months people may feel tempted to huddle up indoors but all the evidence shows that keeping active and getting outside is great for your mental, as well as your physical, wellbeing. Experiencing the weather and the spectacular Autumn displays are always fantastically uplifting for people and that’s why Explore Kent and Kent Sport have combined energies for this season’s #GoOutside campaign.

Evidence suggests that going outdoors lessen your chances of suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), prevalent at this time of year, so make a change for the better and we reckon you’ll feel amazing! So whether it’s walking the dog, going for a run, cycling with the kids or even meeting up with some mates for a kickabout, why not #GoOutside and enjoy everything Autumn has to offer in Kent and Medway!

You can find plenty of information about #GoOutside on Kent Sport’s website at, including loads of ideas for places and activities to help you get active this Autumn. You can also tell us your #GoOutside stories for the chance to win an amazing £100 of high street shopping vouchers! You’ve got until the 15th January 2017 to enter and be in with a chance of winning! If none of that has convinced you then we guarantee it’ll make you feel great, go on #GoOutside, we dare you.
