Frequently Asked Questions

What do I track, which activities count?

Track your steps every day. Any activity which involves steps, counts. whether you’re at work or not. Make your next meeting a walking one, take the stairs instead of the lift, take a walk in your lunch break, why not walk to work? However you like to, get walking!

How do I track my steps?

However you like; use your smart watch, your smartphone or a pedometer. Log into the Challenge Platform, register your team and log your steps to take part. You can even log your steps based on how many minutes you have walked- it’s that simple!

How many people in a team?

There is no limit to the number of people per team. You can take part with just 2 or a 100 team members.

What if another team has more people so can get more steps?

Your team score will be an average amount of steps per person so it’s fair.

The categories for the overall competition are:

Overall Team winners (average steps and also total steps)
Small (1-10) Medium (11-25) and Large (26+) Teams where we will calculate the average steps taken by each team.

Are there prizes to be won?

There are weekly challenges and lots of exciting prizes to be given away including some fitbits, vouchers and other exciting goodies!

Keep an eye on our Active Devon Plymouth Facebook Page and your weekly round-up emails to find out more.

“I’m not very fit so I’ll never win, what’s the point?”

You’ll win health benefits!

Whether or not to compete with others is up to you, the main thing is that you are increasing the amount of physical activity that you do, so you are competing with yourself.

A step further…

During the challenge we will be giving you lots of hints and tips on how to take things a step further by including 10 Active minutes of physical activity each day and the health benefits you can gain.

The challenge finishes at midnight 30th September and you will have until 12pm on the 1st October to add your steps either manually or syncing your fitness tracker. Steps will continue to appear on your activity tracker page after this date but wont be counted in the challenge.

Oh, and did we mention there are lots of prizes to be won throughout the challenge. For example by taking part in the weekly challenges which we will set.
