What is an online team challenge?

A virtual activity tracker like Big Team Challenge allows you to create your own private activity challenge for you and your employees or community group to participate in and track their physical activity over a number of weeks.

Why not walk somewhere a little... warmer?

While you might be walking the cold neighbourhoods around your house, why not treat your team and have them walk virtually around the sunny Gold Coast in Australia, island hop in the Caribbean, or explore the historic wonders of Mexico?

How it works

  • There's no limit to the amount of participants
  • Get organised into teams of between 2 and 10 people
  • Teammates add their steps into the team's collective total
  • Teams track their progress against other teams on the leaderboard
