The Marchathon Step Challenge is back from the 1st - 28th March!

Published: Feb 19th, 08:00

Can you go the extra step? This year it may be slightly different, but Marchathon is a great way for you to connect with your colleagues virtually and have some good-old-fashioned competitive fun, while adhering to the current government restrictions! We’re challenging you to grab some teammates, lace up your walking shoes and step your way to some great prizes. There will be weekly competitions, updated leader boards, plenty of prizes and plenty of fun.

How to take part:

1. Get into a team of 3 – 6 people

2. Sign-up HERE

a) Team captain: choose a team name and set your team up on the Active Travel Logger

b) Team members: sign up online at Active Travel Logger, find your team’s name and join.

3. Get a Step Counter — download an app, use a pedometer, or use your activity tracker.

4. From the 1st – 28th March get walking where possible, aiming to increase your steps throughout the challenge.

5. Have fun and get competitive!
