Each week and at the end of the Challenge, we will be giving away a range of superb prizes.

Up to 31st May

We want you to get involved as soon as possible, so we will be rewarding those who register before the Challenge even starts!

All workplaces who register on the Challenge platform between Tuesday 7th May and Friday 10th May will be entered into a draw to win a Dr Bike session with a bike mechanic at their workplace, worth £250.

All individuals who register by 29th May will be entered into a prize draw to win a £50 high street shopping voucher.

Tell a friend about the Challenge for another chance to win! Invite friends and colleagues to register on the website by Sunday 9th June. The top 5 who invite the most will be entered into a prize draw. You could win a £30 high street shopping voucher, so spread the word!

Endurance Prizes

If you participate in the challenge five days from seven, weekly, from 1st – 30th June, you deserve some hard-earned relaxation! If you log an active travel journey every 'week' day (five days from seven qualifies) in June, you will have a chance at winning a £100 gift voucher for Hastings Hotels.

Log 40 journeys using any sustainable mode throughout the Challenge and you will be entered a prize draw to win one of two £75 gift vouchers.

Do you run to work? We are looking for those individuals who use their commute to get their running training in – so whether you are a regular runner or using your commute to train for an event, we want you to take part in this challenge. Register and log your running journeys and you could win a Garmin Forerunner 35 GPS watch.
The more running journeys you log, the more chance you have of winning.

The more times you swap your regular car journey for a more sustainable mode of transport, the more chance you have of winning a pair of First Plus Enterprise tickets. The person who log the most journeys that would have normally been made by car for walking, cycling, or taking the bus will win.

For those who leave the car behind in favour of walking, there are two Fitbit Versa Watches up for grabs. These will be awarded to the two participants that make the greatest modal shift towards walking over the course of the challenge.

NOTE: We will also be keeping watch over any dodgy looking results to ensure fair competition and can suspend your account pending investigation - you have been warned!!

The Group Challenge

The main aim of the Challenge is to collectively compete for the title of Travel Champions for 2019, with the winning workplace site, organisation, or community group in each size category coming away at the end of the Challenge with a prestigious Active Travel Challenge Trophy.

To win your size category you must have the highest participation rate. You can also vie for the esteemed Workplace Initiative Award by going above and beyond or getting creative to promote active travel throughout the month (i.e. closing the staff car park for a day, providing free breakfast for those walking/cycling to work, etc.)
