Our Fall Collection arrived online and in stores this week. For Team Athleta, the shift of retail seasons is a reminder that, before we know it, summer will be over. To keep ourselves in the moment, we’re putting out this challenge: Do at least 5 new things before the Fall Equinox on September 22nd.

Check out our gallery of summer to-do ideas below, and learn how you can contribute to the fun for a chance to win an Athleta gift card!

What'SUP? | Stand up paddleboarding has gone mainstream, so there are tons of places you can rent a board for a day of fun. Hit the waves, lake, river, or even a pool and discover this surprisingly accessible sport. If you're brave, try some SUPilates or SUP Yoga!
Obstacle Fun
Obstacle Fun | Sign up for a race that involves running and obstacles. Color runs, mud runs and even zombie runs appeal to a diverse group of participants, from serious competitors to anyone out to have fun and get moving.
MoonClimb | OK, not literally, but imagine that with every step you took you got closer to the moon. Would it inspire you to take extra steps or climb the stairs rather than take the elevator? Join a virtual community of people stepping their way to the moon.
Blue Sky Yoga
Blue Sky Yoga | When was the last time you took your our yoga mat outside? Find an outdoor class in your area (like this one at Bryant Park in New York City) or pick a tutorial from our library and head to the blue sky studio for a plein air practice.
Rock Out
Rock Out | Grab a friend and go take a rock climbing lesson outside. Your local sporting goods store may offer classes, or know someone who does. Scared of heights? Try bouldering instead and get the same rush closer to the ground.
