Ready, Steady, Go! It’s The BIG Dorset Outdoor Weekend

BIG Dorset Outdoor Weekend Banner1

Weymouth is the perfect destination for outdoor sports and activities, offering enthusiasts a large and diverse range of opportunities in and around the area. 

Weymouth BID will be hosting a new event called the BIG DORSET OUTDOOR WEEKEND this weekend  20th and 21st May 2017, the event will bring together over 25 outdoor activity and adventure events in south Dorset with a particular focus on Weymouth & Portland.  Activities will include cycling, running, walking and a vast selection of water based activities. Check out the schedule of activities that are happening.

It is hoped that The BIG Dorset Outdoor Weekend will inspire both local residents and visitors of all ages to either take part for the first time or enjoy their chosen activity in the fantastic outdoor playground we know as Weymouth & Portland.


Many of the local activity providers are more than happy to provide taster sessions throughout the year to give visitors the chance to have a go before committing to any particular activity, all equipment and specialist clothing is usually provided and expert advice is always on hand from a whole host of professional providers or activity club members.  

The timing of the ‘BIG Dorset Outdoor Weekend’ has been deliberately set at the beginning of the season to enable people to continue with your chosen activity or activities throughout the rest of the year. This can be seen nowadays from the many sporting events that take place in the borough right through the year including watersports, walking, cycling, and running events.  I would urge people to sign up as soon as possible as some of the classes are almost fully booked.

If you would like to take part in any of the activities please contact the activity provider.  For more information and to book activities please visit
