We've put together a list of ideas and resources to help you justgOutside.
There is so much to do outside.
Here is a sampling of fun trips to our national parks. If you have a special place and trip for families, tell us about it and we will add it to the list. Don’t want to plan your own trip but want to try something like this? We love Backroads. They do the work and take you and your family on an awesome adventure outside.

So fun. The energy at these events is awesome. If you are serious, pick the earlier heats. If you want to challenge yourself and do your first mud run, this is for you. Get a group together. Dress up… just do it. When are you ever going to be this muddy again? ….walk it if you have to… go around the obstacles if you have to. ..be inspired by the event and by the OUTSIDE. In the meantime, help St. Jude.
Want to tri? This is for you. They are so organized and helpful. HITS will even help you get your wetsuit off. There is a distance for you.
Are you serious? This is for you. The distances and information are impressive. We love the atmosphere and guys running this series.
If you like to run, check this out. They have a lot of great races for all kinds of athletes. But, if you want to see some crazy trail runs and elevations… this is for you. Very fun atmosphere.

This is vintage bike with tweed wearing riders outside. Excellent. In case you don’t like spandex...
Living in a city can sometimes challenge your ability to find some green space. You would be surprised by how many activities are available in major cities. Below is just a sampling. If you search, you will find it… camping, fishing, outdoor fitness classes and more…most of which are FREE! Don’t forget the value of just sitting on a park bench. There is power in movement and stillness. JustgOutside!
