Get Outside Champion Blogs #3 - Jen and Sim Benson

Jen and Sim Benson are the third of the fellow OS GetOutside Champions that I'm featuring here on LivingGeography. Jen wasn't at the Champions launch, but I shared a table with Sim, and we did the treasure hunt activity together. Jen and Sim spend rather a lot more time outside than I do, and are also a little fitter...
They blog about all things outdoors, including fitness, adventure and outdoor activities, and share their photography too.

They have just had a new book published, which is called An Adventurer's Guide to Britain.

Here's a description of the book, which looks like it would be worth seeking out to get some ideas for the summer to come.

This exciting, inspiring and informative guide is perfect for anyone who loves a challenge and an adventure. There are soaring ridgelines to run, exciting river descents to swim, secret coves to explore by boat, and achievable interesting scrambles, all in stunning locations.
Each of the 150 featured adventures, which are arranged by geographical region, has been carefully chosen for being exhilarating, achievable by any reasonably active person, and as safe as possible. You'll be taken on a tour of the country and discovering where to do things you never thought possible in the UK – exploring the caves and creeks of Cornwall by kayak, sleeping under the stars surrounded by the towering mountains of the Cuillin Ridge, or swimming in the faery pools at Glen Brittle on Skye.

The Adventurer's Guide to Britain puts together some of the very best experiences from the different worlds of adventure sport, to create the ultimate outdoor bible for those who love getting outside, challenging themselves and exploring beautiful Britain
