UK outdoor retailer Blacks has confirmed its new partnership for 2016 with British Military Fitness, the obstacle event specialist and nationwide fitness team that delivers group training events to get people exercising outdoors.

Blacks notes that its mission is inspire consumers to spend more time enjoying the great outdoors. By partnering with British Military Fitness feels it is ‘giving you another exciting way to get out there.’

British Military Fitness (BMF) specialises in outdoor fitness, welcoming people of all fitness levels to take part in tailored fitness classes led by military-trained professionals. The classes have taken the UK by storm and are regularly inspiring people to get fit outdoors at over 140 BMF venues up and down the country.

Commenting on the new partnership, Harry Sowerby, Managing Director at BMF said “Having the right kit to train outdoors in all weathers can be key to making sure you get the most out of your workout, which is why Blacks is a perfect partner for BMF. Our military trained instructors will be choosing Blacks equipment every day – whether it’s running outdoor fitness classes 365 days a year or climbing mountains in their own time.

“It is great to have them on board and to be able to offer our members fantastic exclusive deals on their wide range of products. We are also looking forward to welcoming Blacks customers to our parks to give BMF a go, all they have to do is turn up and we will do the rest – we are sure they will love it!!”

Blacks customers will receive a free trial for the popular outdoor fitness sessions as well as access to BMF’s leading obstacle course race series, the Royal British Legion Major Series. What’s more, both BMF and Major Series participants will benefit from exclusive promotions across the extensive range of Blacks products.

The new-look Royal British Legion Major Series 2016 is positioned as the culmination of BMF’s outdoor training ‘with added mud’. On offer are two distance obstacle runs, a 5K course for entry-level first-timers and a 10K course with over 30 obstacles for those looking for a greater challenge.
