HER Outdoors Week aims to celebrate and encourage more females to get out and enjoy the benefits of being in the outdoors while bringing visibility to the opportunities for females to get involved in outdoor physical activity.
This week is all about providing more opportunities for ALL females to escape to the outdoors and try something new. For such a tiny island, there are so many incredible outdoor activities on offer and this should be celebrated to the fullest!
HER Outdoors Week takes place from August 14th – 20th.
Westmeath Sports Partnership is providing many different opportunities for females to get involved in a wide variety of sports.
Below you can find a timetable of all events but some may not be available to the public due to being very popular and limited availability.
