About the Challenge
What is the Challenge?
It’s great fun and we'll be giving out loads of prizes along the way!
The aim of the Challenge is to get as many people as possible choosing to make more of their journeys by walking, cycling, running, scooting/skating, and using public transport then logging these journeys. We want people to rethink their commute and consider using active travel during the course of their work i.e. walking or cycling to a meeting. But it's not just about commuting. We want to see people getting active in their leisure time as well. If you have a walking group or cycling group, for example, or if you take the train for a day out with the family, you can log these journeys and activities too.
How does it work?
You can also create teams within workplaces to create inter-departmental competition (but you don't have to). You'll need to do this when you register your workplace. If you need to add teams or make amendments after you've registered please email firstname.lastname@example.org who will try to respond as quickly as possible.
How do I Win?
To get to the top of the individual leaderboard you have to log more journeys than anyone else. Individual prizes will be given out weekly throughout the Challenge. Some are based on making journeys that align with that week’s theme, but not all. Weekly prize draws acknowledge people's efforts regardless of their number of journeys logged or what type of journey they undertake. See the prizes section of the website for further information on how to compete for individual prizes!
We strongly encourage organisations to obtain some prizes and run their own internal competitions. It's a great way to inspire your people to get signed up and get active! If you are running your own internal competitions you can download a "Certificate of Participation/Achievement" for your teams here. Ultimately, this is a team-based competition where your workplace will collectively compete against rival teams for the glory of being Active Travel Champions for 2019!
