SO MUCH FUN – if I had to describe Wednesday night’s events in 3 words. Decathlon (also known as the most AWESOME sport store ever) invited some cool bloggers to their Surrey Quays store for an epic scavenger hunt. If you haven’t been to this location yet, plan on a couple hours to check it out – its MASSIVE. I guarantee you’ll want to take home just about everything…they even sell SUP boards and kayaks!
We met in the offices and picked out of a hat to get our teams. I was on the blue team with Helen and Marcus – two of my favorite people. We had an hour to complete a whole page full of tasks – they didn’t make it easy for us either. We had a blast running around the store doing maths challenges and discovering all the Decathlon brands, sport by sport. We stopped along the way to snap some funny pics…and we learned Marcus knows how to juggle (apparently a skill he’s just recently taught himself).
Impressive rt?! I tried hula hooping with a bike tire but wasn’t as nearly successful as he was…
We learned a lot about the brand as well, I didn’t know it was family owned and they have over 20 of their own brands. Everything from biking to running to horse riding and things for golf, swimming, hiking and hunting. They have their own sunglasses, scooters and electronics brands, this is how they can keep their prices so affordable.
Our team came in last but we had so many laughs we couldn’t have cared less! Afterwards we we’re treated with food and drinks and a awesome goody bag. I never can have too many backpacks and it was stocked full of fitness goodies like an exercise ball (love), a water bottle holder and a super cute pink towel ( can always use one of those as I’m a sweaty workout person).
If that wasn’t enough, we also got a spiffy gift card – YEAH – another reason to go back and shop! Maybe it’s time to buy that kayak….
I’ve never been to such a fun blogging event – a mid-week party with such a fun group of people! So many laughs my abs still hurt this morning… A HUGE thanks to Decathlon for hosting and you will be seeing me very soon!
