Hilarious and Creative QuaranTraining Videos from the Outdoor Adventure Community

Spring has sprung, and the summer adventure season is fast approaching. It’s that time of year when outdoorsy folk, in the northern hemisphere at least, start dusting off our boots / shoes / backpacks / bikes and making plans for some epic journeys. It’s been a long winter, and we are sooooo ready to go play outside.

Except there’s this one little issue: basically the whole world is quarantined, isolated, socially distanced, and just generally discombobulated. Though we all know the restrictions are necessary to save lives, and our canceled hikes and races and trips are nothing compared to what many people are facing right now, that doesn’t mean we have to like it.

In times like these, it helps to know we’re not alone. As people join together all over the world in an unprecedented level of global connection, the outdoor community is no exception. Many outdoor adventurers and athletes are finding ways to transform disappointment, frustration, and pent-up energy into creative training and exploration… and hilarious and amazing videos.

Some are humorous spoofs on the outdoor film genre, some are legitimately badass outdoor feats, and some offer inspiration for our own home training. All of them show us that we are not alone, and that we have no excuse to just sit on our butts and complain.

I hope this collection of videos, courtesy of outdoor athletes across a range of sports and disciplines, adds a touch of lightness and inspiration to your day. And when you’re done watching, check out these indoor activities for outdoor adventure lovers for even more inspiration. We CAN find ways to make the most of this situation.

Oh, one more thing. I shouldn’t have to say this, but, we are in the midst of a crisis in which the world’s medical systems are being severely overloaded. Don’t add yourself to the mix! Unless you are completely confident in your skills, don’t try this at home kids. Maybe just run laps around your living room while you watch these for fun.
