October newsletter: it's race season!
Races, navigation training and a pop-up event
It's race season! This is always a great time of year. The days are cooler, the leaves are turning and across the fells of the UK runners are testing their mettle and getting muddy legs. Team Unwrapped Bars and our customers have been taking part in races up and down the country and getting ready for more in the coming months. In this newsletter we hear from Peak Confidence about navigation training for the OMM, as well as what some of our customers and team have been up to in the hills...
We also have details of an exciting event where you can get your hands on some Unwrapped Bars and some refurbished outdoor gear. Supporting a circular economy and getting gear for your adventures? Double win.
Circular pop-up event @ Eco Larder, Edinburgh
The amazing folk at Bluebird Exchange, a non-profit org reclaiming, repairing and redistributing outdoor gear, are hosting this event at the lovely Eco Larder in Edinburgh on Saturday 16th October. We'll be there talking all things circular economy, the outdoor industry and food. Three of our favourite topics here at Unwrapped Bars HQ!
There'll also be a chance to get your hands on some Unwrapped Bars and reclaimed outdoor gear as well as learn more about the circular economy through workshops and talks. Head here to find out more.
OMM training and sustainable adventure
In this month's guest blog we hear from Rebecca North, owner of outdoor adventure company Peak Confidence.
Rebecca supports people to build confidence and skills in the outdoors through guided courses in the beautiful Lake District. In this blog, she tells us about why she started Peak Confidence, how she tries to be sustainable in her adventures and how you can build confidence in your outdoor skills.
Schop @ Ochils Ultra
Founders of sustainable marketplace Schop, and Unwrapped Bars customers, put in two very impressive efforts at Ochils Ultra in early September. Despite it being both Tim and Totty's first ever ultramarathons, they managed to place 5th and 3rd respectively. There's no stopping them now!
Schop is an Edinburgh-based online shop providing quality local produce, sustainable packaging and a carbon-neutral delivery service. Check them out here.
