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

This is your online tool to get motivated and challenge yourself to walk, cycle, scoot, wheel or take public transport for more of your everyday journeys from 1 to 30 June.

It's a 4-week Challenge and we want to help you 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 from any organisation, workplace or community group in Northern Ireland can take part. Register today and start logging your journeys from 1 June.

You can log any journey whether it's your regular commute, trip to the shops or leisure activity, the school run or business trip.

If you are working from home you can also record your walking or cycling activities! All these journeys can be logged, and we will be encouraging you every step of the way.

The Challenge is free to join, and simple to take part in. Compete as an individual or join your workplace or organisation and set up a team.

Take part with your colleagues and friends, set targets, and encourage each other along the way.

We will send you regular e-newsletters with some great tips as well as giving out prizes along the way.

Don't forget to claim your rewards too for some great discounts and offers!

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.

We’re giving away some great prizes to help encourage you along the way, and you can track all your progress on your own personal dashboard.

You can also sign up with friends and colleagues in a team, collect virtual badges for your efforts and access some great rewards.

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

All this helps you 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 or public transport.

Trips to the shops, to a leisure activity, taking the kids to school, or to do a walk, jog, run, or cycle 'loop' at lunchtime to keep active also count!

Log your activity daily to help your team or organisation climb the leaderboard!

How do I win?

Organisations

The winning organisation in each size category will be the one that has the highest level of participation.

Get your colleagues involved and encourage them to leave the car at home and get active to get to work; or to partake in some exercise during the working day.

Logging just one journey is enough to be included as a participant, helping your team to climb the leaderboard. You will hopefully be encouraged to get out and give it another try!


Individuals

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

We want to see you making regular changes to your everyday commuting and business journeys.

We will be celebrating your success with weekly focused prizes along the way, as well as putting the top 10 from the leaderboard into a grand prize draw at the end of June!
