Join us for the Autumn Step Count Challenge 2021

It's our 10th birthday, and we have more prizes, features and incentives than ever before.

Published: 04/10/2021

We're celebrating 10 years of the Step Count Challenge by inviting teams of workmates to sign up for a special autumn of being active. Running for four weeks and starting on 25 October, the challenge is a great way to have fun with colleagues, and feel the benefits of walking and moving more during the working day. 

The first Step Count Challenge took place in 2011, and since then over 46,000 people forming 9,700 teams have taken part, collectively covering almost 10 million miles.

Now, to mark a decade of ditching the desk, those taking part in the autumn anniversary challenge will be treated to more chances to win prizes while NHS and emergency services staff with a Blue Light Card will be entitled to a sign-up discount.

And, as the challenge coincides with COP26, participants will have access to a new carbon calculator feature to track how making more everyday journeys on foot and wheelchair are protecting the planet.

Everyone who registers will be in with a chance of winning a luxury Scottish getaway and a host of other goodies from a range of independent businesses.

Each week we’ll have a prize draw for everyone taking part. The lucky winner will be able to choose from one of the following prizes: 
Two runners-up will get a selection of Step Count Challenge merchandise including a Klean Kanteen water bottle, tote bag and Moleskine notebook. 

We’ll have an additional special prize draw to mark 10 years of the Step Count Challenge. The winner will receive a £300 gift voucher to spend on a luxury getaway at a Macdonald Hotel of your choice. The winner will be announced in week 2 of the challenge.  

Towards the end of the challenge, we’ll also ask you to nominate your Step Count Champion. Someone who has gone that extra mile to inspire and motivate you and your team. The winner will receive a Fitbit smartwatch and the title of autumn Step Count Champion 2021. 

And that’s not all, the winners of the Step Count Challenge leaderboard will receive a Fitbit activity tracker for each team member.
