About us

Getting active outdoors is great for our wellbeing.


TimeOutdoors is an online community for people who want to lead an active lifestyle outdoors. We inspire people to get active outdoors; we make it easy for them to find and sign up to things; and we provide tools to plan, log and share their outdoor activities with others.

We've recently launched the One Million Challenge, our community challenge to spend one million hours active outdoors in 2023. It's free to sign up and people can clock up hours however they like using a fitness tracker - join in today!
