Outsiders Winter Challenge

May 20, 2020

ioMerino Outsiders Winter Challenge


It can be tough to stay motivated through Winter, even more so this year when so many events have been cancelled. But don’t worry, the ioMerino Outsiders Winter Challenge is here to keep you inspired, motivated and ready to earn some bling.

Sign up now




Here’s how it works:

Step 1: Let us know if you’ll be hiking, running or riding.
Step 2: Let us know what distance you’re signing up for - 10, 25, 50 or 100km a week.
Step 3: Choose whether you’re signing up for free or whether you want some bling at the end of it. And there's even official ioMerino Winter Challenge merchandise to use now so you have something awesome to wear while you’re doing the challenge.
Step 4: If you’re on Strava, you may want to join to the Outsiders Club to stay connected. But don’t panic, if you’re not on Strava, you can still do the challenge. Just measure your own efforts as you go with whatever app you like.
Step 5: Every week we’ll send you an email with your ‘virtual check point’ - simply check in each week and let us know you’re still there and still going and you’ll automatically go in that week’s prize draw. There’ll be different prizes each week, and who knows, there may even be some bonus challenges along the way.
Step 6: Get to the end, cross the ‘virtual finish line’, and get your bling.

The Cycling Adventure That Hit A Major COVID- 19 Roadblock

An epic 3,000km bike packing trip from Cape Reinga on the very north tip of New Zealand, to Bluff in the south. Andrew knew there would be plenty of challenges along the way, but he certainly wasn’t expecting to ride head on into the chaos of a global pandemic.

Well, what strange times these are. If you’d asked us just a month or two ago if we thought this is what the world would look like at the moment, we probably would have laughed.

Fabric Guide

While Merino is an amazing natural fibre, not all Merino fabrics are created equal. At ioMerino, we make our own fabrics, using only the best quality fibres, and to very specific specifications that make the most of the natural benefits of Merino. All of them are 'Merino rich’. No cheap blends passed off as Merino. No cheaper scratchy fibres or synthetic substitutes to save money. No unethical production. And each fabric is made for a specific purpose. So if you see something with a small amount of elastase or nylon added, you can be sure it absolutely needs to be there to enhance the natural stretch and durability. 

It took every bit of our 140 years of experience in the wool industry to perfect our fabrics, but we think you’ll agree the end result was more than worth the effort.

Ethically Made. Ethically Sourced. Perfectly Natural.
