#SheAdventures Instagram Challenge

Outdoor Research has dedicated the month of July to the stories of the women in our community; their empowering moments, overcoming challenges, building new skills, and coming alive in the outdoors. We hope that you will share your journey with us, as we share stories with you throughout the month.

We’re proud to present the #SheAdventures Instagram Challenge. You don’t have to be a pro to win, antics are expected, points are arbitrary, creativity is recommended, and adventure is required. Follow us on Instagram and check in every Monday for a new adventure challenge. Complete the challenge and include #SheAdventures and #OutdoorResearch in your entry by the following Sunday night for a chance at one of our weekly featured prizes. So GET OUT, and fill your July with awesomesauce! While we have dedicated July to all those adventurous ladies, we encourage everyone to participate.

#SheAdventures Challenge 1: Grab your adventure partner, mentor, motivator, buddy, cohort, team-mate, or whoever keeps you adventuring and strike a pose. A multi-purpose Ferrosi Hoody ($129) for you and your wing-person is up for grabs! Don’t forget creativity counts! To enter, simply post a photo to Instagram that meets the above criteria with #SheAdventures and #OutdoorResearch by Sunday, July 12.

Check back right here in this post each week to see the weekly winning photos. It could be you!

Big dog + little pack. Congratulations to @tahagal, the winner of the Canine Companion #SheAdventures Instagram Challenge. Woof woof! 

#SheAdventures Challenge 3: This week’s challenge is dedicated Type II fun. These are the adventures that can feel miserable at the time, but are fun to talk about later. To enter, post a photo with your best “Suffer Selfie” using #SheAdventures and #OutdoorResearch by Sunday night, July 26. This week’s favorite face will take home a super breathable Deviator Hoody ($185) for when the try-hard sweat kicks in.

Congratulations to @MegMag00, the winner of our #SheAdventures #SufferSelfie challenge! Kudos for a phenomenally miserable facial expression.
