A short walk goes a long way. Active people live longer and healthier lives. Being active can reduce the risk of heart disease by half.
Walking really works. A physically active workforce takes 27% fewer sick days. That works out at 2 days improved attendance annually per employee
Walking can easily be incorporated into your daily routines. Take the stairs instead of taking the lift. Walk to work.
You need to enter as a team of 5 people. You'll need to nominate a team captain and choose a team name.
You can enter an individual team or you can enter multiple teams from your workplace.
Measure your steps using a pedometer, activity tracker or app.
You'll get a user account where you record your daily steps, share comments with your team and track your team's progress on our leaderboards.
We'll set goals and provide you and your team with lots of motivation and challenges to keep you walking.
At the end of the challenge we'll have a prize draw for all the teams that complete the challenge.
You can use the challenge to create your own virtual journey by turning your steps to miles or you could raise some cash for your favourite charity.
We have a number of partners supporting the Step Count Challenge. See how our partners can help.
