The Active Travel Challenge is a great way to get active this June!

This is your free online tool to get motivated and challenge yourself to walk, wheel, run, scoot, take public transport and care share for more of your everyday journeys from 1 to 30 June. Win prizes and rewards for your efforts!

Throughout June we will encourage you to leave your car at home, get active and help keep our villages, towns, and cities clean and fantastic places to live and work.

What is the Challenge?

Everyone living or working in Northern Ireland can take part. We are especially keen to see organisations and workplaces taking part, creating teams and encouraging others to participate. Compete as an individual, or take part with your colleagues and friends, set targets, and encourage each other.

The Challenge is free, and simple to take part in. Log any journey whether it's your regular commute, trip to the shops or leisure activity, the school run, or business trip. Your journeys will count towards great prizes.

Register today and start logging your journeys on this platform from 1 June. We will send you regular e-newsletters with some great tips as well as giving out prizes every week.

If you are working from home you can also record your walking, cycling, scooting, running or wheeling activities that you undertake as part of your daily activity.

You can unlock discounts and rewards for reaching journey targets. Don't forget to view your personal profile dashboard regularly to see your statistics and claim these rewards when you have reached your targets!


Why take part?

Take part because it’s a great way to challenge yourself to get active and try some new ways of getting to work as well as getting around your local area.

Walking, scooting, wheeling, cycling, and running on your commute or local journey are great ways of incorporating exercise into your day; whilst public transport and lift-sharing reduce congestion and can save you money.

Join up with your workplace, or social group to try to win the team prize; get fitter, feel good, and do your bit to keep Northern Ireland's air clean!

Which journeys count?

All journeys to work or for work that are carried out on foot, by bike, car-share or public transport.

Trips to the shops, a leisure activity, taking the kids to school, or a walk, jog, run, or cycle at such as at lunchtime to keep active also count.

How do I win?


To climb the leaderboard you must make and log lots of journeys rather than a small number of long journeys.

It's not about being an athlete; we love to hear about you making regular changes to your everyday local trips and commute, however small. There are prizes for sharing your stories and photos too.


If you have entered or joined a workplace or organisation, your participation counts towards your workplace total. The winning workplace in each size category will be the one that has the highest percentage of those signed up recording journeys.

Spread the word at your workplace and encourage your colleagues to travel sustainably or to take some exercise during the day.

Logging just one journey is enough to be included as a participant, helping your team to climb the leaderboard.

We're hoping those who participate will be encouraged to make their new ways of travelling an ongoing habit.
