How fast can you pump up a Vango tent?

Politicians have made great play of being pumped up recently.

Now, a leading tent brand is offering prized to the top outdoor fans who can prove they are up for the Pump it up Challenge.

Vango is on the lookout for the speediest and most stylish campers who can show they are up to the task by creating a video of themselves inflating and pitching one of the brand’s AirBeam tents.

The competition is open to anyone, so long as they have access to a Vango AirBeam tent. Entrants need only make a video of themselves inflating their AirBeam as fast – and well pitched – as possible.

Campers have until 24 July 25to create their masterpieces, upload them to YouTube, and complete the competition entry form – which can be found on the brand’s website.

The competition’s top prize package, the Sprinter, will be awarded to those who submit the video of the fastest, best-pitched tent. The devil is in the detail with this one: Vango’s keen-eyed judges will be awarding style points, which all go towards the final score.

The winner of the Sprinter category will be given a £1,000 Vango voucher, a GoPro Hero3 camera and five nights camping at a Camping and Caravanning Club site of their choosing.

The Crowd-Pleasers prize will be given to the three videos with the highest number of YouTube likes, so to claim these prizes, sharing your video is a must. The three winners will each pick up five nights of camping, a GoPro Hero3 and a £500 Vango voucher.

Last, the Entertainer prize package will be awarded to the entrant with the most stylish, interesting and engaging video, with one charismatic camper set to land a £500 Vango voucher, Hero3 camera and five nights of camping.

There’s no cheating allowed: no cheeky speed-ups. Entrants must make sure they title their video correctly with their name and the model of tent used. Supporters are welcome in the video, but only one person is allowed to do the pumping.

The AirBeam tents use inflatable elements in place of conventional poles.
