Hiking in the Alps with Quechua

If you’re a regular shopper in Decathlon, you may have heard of Quechua. One of Decathlon’s in-house brands, they are based at the foot of Mont Blanc in Sallanches, next door to the Decathlon Mountain Store. Surrounded by the glorious mountains, this is the perfect base for them to develop their hiking products, which are designed and tested in-house. Their head office is shared with Wed’ze, who were born from Quechua in 2007 and focus on ski and snowboarding activities.     Last month, along with some other bloggers, I was invited to spend a… View Post

DOMs with Decathlon

I love Decathlon, so I was excited to attend the launch of their Decathlon Bloggers Community last week in London. It was a great opportunity to catch up with friends…and as it turned out, take part in some circuits.     If you haven’t shopped in Decathlon at all, I don’t know what you are waiting for. The stores are an affordable treasure trove of everything you could possibly think of (except bowling balls). Their tag line is simple, “Sport for all, all for sport.” Simply put, they are making sport accessible to everyone, believing… View Post

Decathlon Scavenger Hunt

What happens when you throw 9 bloggers into Decathlon’s Surrey Quays store for a scavenger hunt?

It’s a great store and I’ve bought many gems over the years, including my fantastic trail running skirt. I also took part in the Belfast edition of their popular run series, which is a FREE, organised, timed race held at various Decathlon stores – they are keen to involve their local… View Post

Decathlon Domyos Energy Xtrem Review

I’m a fan of Decathlon. I find it impossible to go into one of their stores and leave without buying anything. Over the years, they’ve served me in running kit, camping equipment and their tennis skirts are great for bowling. They’re a great company too, so when they asked me to review a selection of clothing from the Domyos range, I naturally said yes. The Domyos range at Decathlon is reasonably priced and one of the things I like is the way that all of the items are mix and match. I was sent 3… View Post

Decathlon Running Series Belfast

  I love Decathlon. I was introduced to the store a few years ago and have purchased much of my running kit from there since. They offer one of the biggest selections of sports equipment I’ve ever seen, great quality at very reasonable prices. One of their unique selling points is the sheer number of sports they cater for, it isn’t just the mainstream. They stock equipment for about 70 different sports, from the more mainstream running and football, to archery and rock climbing. Simply put, if you want to get started in a new… View Post
