Our people


Our staff are actively involved in all sorts of outdoor activities and it's for their first hand experience that they are selected to work in our stores. We are proud to have an enthusiastic and highly motivated team of staff who can offer sound advice based on their own extensive knowledge and experience of all things outdoor.

What we get up to in our spare time...


Whether it is competing in outdoor sports events, climbing mountains, taking part in charity expeditions, world travel or even polar exploration - our staff live for the outdoors. Here are just a few examples of the amazing outdoor adventures our staff are involved with:

Cotswold Race Team - For over 15 years, our race team has given Cotswold Outdoor staff the opportunity to take part in a range of outdoor sporting events including adventure races, mountain marathons, bike events & more. Past events include The South Downs Way, Open 5 Adventure Race and Fred Whitton road cycle sportive. This year, we are even sending a team over to Ireland for the Killarney Adventure Race, as well as the gruelling Lakeland 50 Long Distance Trail Race. The race team means that our staff can get outdoors, try new outdoor activities and experiences and test outdoor gear in the real world - they can then feed back to the Cotswold Outdoor buying team and brands directly as well as being able to give our customers trusted advice in store.
