Factory Media Launches Outside Times
Tuesday, February 26th, 2013
Tuesday, 26th February 2013, Factory Media is proud to announce the launch
of its latest website, outsidetimes.com. The Outside Times will become Factory
Media’s 29th website within Europe’s largest action sports network.
Outsidetimes.com – Push yourself. Outside.
An introduction from the editor:
The Outside Times is a new adventure multisport website aiming to stoke the fires in
all of us looking for the next big challenge outdoors. Our aim is to bring you a range
of different sports and events to get you out there and into it in the outdoors.
We don’t think that we should have to choose. We’re not just runners, hikers or
cyclists, we’re outside people, happy to give it all a go. Sure, we have sports that we
love and go back to for our regular fix, but we’re always on the look-out for something
new to string our bows.
We’re not going to get all poetic and teary-eyed about things. The simple fact is that
doing things outside is fun and inspiring. It’s better than sweating away on a treadmill
at a faceless gym somewhere staring at the walls.
We aim to cover it all, and to inspire you to push yourself outside. From training tips
for your first trail race to preventing chafing on an ultra marathon. From finding out
where you can race 200 other guys down a snow-covered ski slope to hearing about
what it feels like to climb some of the world’s biggest mountains, if you can do it
outside, we’re interested. And hope you will be too.
CHALLENGES: Discover a new passion and find out where to go to do it. From
adventure races, to trekking expeditions via downhill mountain bike races on ski
slopes, to punishing road cycling sportives, if it’s happening out there, we’ll find it.
GEAR: Head here for product reviews of all the latest bits of gear that you need to
keep you going in the outdoors.
NEWS: From cycle racing to Antarctic expeditions, if it’s going on outside, we’ll let
you know about it.
HOW-TO: Get smart before you get outside with our guides to getting into outdoor
sports. From buying guides, to what to eat to help you go further for longer we’ll have
FITNESS: Tips and advice to help you get the most from your time spent outside.
INSPIRED: All the latest and best videos and images of people doing the things that
we spend a lot of our time sitting in an office writing about.
As with any new adventure, it is important to get the right support from the off, so
please take the time to visit the site, and follow us on your favourite social network:
