Take part in Trail Takeover on August Bank Holiday weekend
Digital mapping company ViewRanger has teamed up with outdoor gear giant Berghaus to launch a free hiking event this month. The aim is to encourage more people to explore the great outdoors on the August Bank Holiday weekend.
The Trail Takeover is a series of three hiking routes in Central Scotland, the Cotswolds and the Peak District on Saturday August 26, with Berghaus offering prizes for participants, including £100 gift cards and an outdoor activity holiday worth £2,000.
On Thursday August 24, Berghaus will send everyone taking part a free route guide to download in the ViewRanger app. The Trail Takeover will begin at 10am on Saturday August 26 and everyone who completes their trail will be in with a chance of winning the £2,000 holiday.
In addition, there will be gift cards worth up to £100 hidden in the hills along each route, plus other surprises and experiences for participants to discover.
Richard Leedham, Berghaus brand president, said: “We’re really excited about the potential of The Trail Takeover. The Bank Holiday weekend is a perfect opportunity for people to spend time outdoors with their family and friends and we’ve come up with a really accessible way to do that.
“Partnering with ViewRanger is a great way to help the public use the latest technology to explore some beautiful locations, and our team will be out along the trails to make sure that everyone has a memorable time. As well as existing enthusiasts, we hope to introduce a lot of new faces to the outdoors on the day, who will be inspired to return again and again.”
