Cotswold Outdoor, Snow+Rock and Runners Need have an established partnership programme with many other like-minded outdoor organisations, such as the Mountain Training Association, Plas-y-Brenin, The National Trust and The Ramblers. The BMC have had a long-running relationship with Cotswold Outdoor, Snow+Rock and Runners Need since 2017.

In return for supporting our work, we will promote Cotswold Outdoor, Snow+Rock and Runners Need as our Official Outdoor Retailers, and all BMC members will receive a 15% discount in those stores.

The Explore More scheme is required to administer the programme and you can specify the use of your data i.e. if you are concerned about data use you can request that it is not used in any other way other than to administer the discount on your purchase when in store.

In June 2019 Cotswold launched Explore More, which is their customer loyalty programme. They also now use this programme to administer the discount offer in store for their partner’s members, these discounts are not available to general members of Explore More, only to their partner organisation members.

There are additional benefits to being part of the Explore More scheme which will benefit BMC members:

  • 3-year extended warranty
  • 100 day return with no receipt
  • Price-match promise
  • Track you orders
  • Exclusive services, offers and competitions

The system is also used for Cotswold to report our members spend back to us and once we reach certain commission points, this triggers additional payments to the BMC to further contribute to the work we do on behalf of our members and communities.
