#GetOutside champion Karl Rushen

In 2015 we launched the #GetOutside campaign to urge people off the sofa, to ditch the car and to enjoy the outdoors along with our ambassadors, wildlife presenter Steve Backshall, endurance adventurer Sean Conway and Everest climber Bonita Norris. In 2016 we've recruited 15 official #GetOutside champions who represent Ordnance Survey with their true #GetOutside spirit. Karl Rushen is the humble mastermind behind the 100 peaks challenge – a multi-activity challenge that takes place over all four countries in the United Kingdom. The event was created as a tribute to Karl’s brother, who was killed in action in Afghanistan. So far, the event has had over 100 participants taking part to raise money for various charities. https://www.os.uk/getoutside/filter/?ambassadors=karl-rushen
