#SheAdventures Weekly Challenges 2019

#SheAdventures started as a celebration for National Women’s Month, and has since evolved into something much bigger than we ever expected. Throughout the month of March, we’ll be announcing weekly Instagram challenges, giving away a climbing scholarship, and featuring photos, stories, artwork, and more from female-identifying individuals who share our passion for exploring and protecting the outdoors. 

Learn more about the #SheAdventures Scholarship and apply to win a guided climb of Mt. Rainier for you and a friend, airfare, and a head-to-toe Outdoor Research mountaineering kit. Applications accepted March 1st - 31st.

Join in on the weekly challenges for the chance to win gear! Here's how to participate:

Every Tuesday of this month (March 5, 12, 19, and 26), we’ll launch a new challenge announcement in this blog article and on our Instagram. You’ll have until the following Sunday night to post your entry on instagram, according to the prompt, with #SheAdventures and #OutdoorResearch, and we’ll select the winner on the following Monday (March 11, 18, 25, and April 1). Each weekly winner will be awarded a sweet new jacket. Photos can be golden oldies or taken specifically for the challenge.

Get started by checking out what photos other folks are tagging with #SheAdventures, and tee up your favorite lady-crusher photos to celebrate the month of March! Good luck!


#SheAdventures Challenge 4: Après Appreciation – Blisters, bandages, sunburns and beer: Sometimes it’s the post-adventure moments that tell the story better than anything else. Share your best “evidence of a good time” pics by 3/31 to be entered to win a Refuge Hybrid Hooded Jacket ($159), as long as you tag #OutdoorResearch & #SheAdventures. Bonus pts if we can guess where you came from, without giving it away!

Congratulations to @mching107, our winner for #SheAdventuresChallenges 3: Getting Sentimental. This warm-fuzzies-inducing, ear-to-ear grin spotted on a trip to Bishop, CA earned her a Refuge Jacket ($199). Thanks to everyone who posted an entry this past week, it was a real treat to see them all. Stay tuned for the fourth and final #SheAdventures challenge coming Tuesday, 3/26. #OutdoorResearch photo by @ben.a.m


#SheAdventuresChallenge 3: Getting Sentimental – Selfies with the doggo? Romantic sunset moments? Mountaintop happy hours with lifelong friends? Whatever makes you say “awww,” we want to see it. Share your most heartwarming pics by 3/24 to enter to win a Refuge Hooded Jacket ($199). Be sure to tag posts with #OutdoorResearch & #SheAdventures. Bonus points for a corny caption!


Congratulations to @craftonjen the winner of #SheAdventuresChallenge 2: Camp Culture. What’s going on here, you ask? Mosquito season. Many have resorted to desperation swatting, but the brave layer up with hard shells, dry bags, pack liners, and a head net. For this particular brand of “Damn it, I will lounge around camp no matter what” stubbornness, she’ll walk home with a brand new Aspire Jacket ($225). New #SheAdventures challenge coming tomorrow, stay tuned! 


#SheAdventures Challenge 2: Camp Culture – Whether you’re glamping or bivying, every outdoorswoman has a good camp story to share. Show us your best, worst, or most hilarious camping shots by 3/17 for the chance to win an Aspire Jacket ($215). We’ll throw in bonus points for non-traditional methods of sleeping outside!


Congratulations to @lifesizemorgan, the winner of #SheAdventures Challenge 1: Uphill Thrills. Look closely for a hilarious facial expression alongside high angle terrain, and even higher stoke. She’ll receive an Interstellar Jacket ($299) as a prize. For more chances to win gear, stay tuned for challenge number 2 coming tomorrow, Tuesday 3/12. 


#SheAdventures Challenge 1: Uphill Thrills – If the journey is half the fun, then this challenge should be an easy one. Show us your grimaces, your grins, and all the moments that come along with a grueling ascent. You’ll be entered to win an Interstellar Jacket ($299) when you post a photo to Instgram by 3/10, and tag #OutdoorResearch & #SheAdventures. Bonus pts: Show us how steep you can go!
