What is a Walking Challenge?

Hosting your own corporate walking challenge is an effective way to get your employees moving and motivated by engaging with them in a fun and interactive challenge around the world.

Healthy, happy and motivated

Getting your teams walking

Walking is regarded as one of the most beneficial exercises we can do, with studies showing its benefits on our physical health and our mental wellbeing. It is also a highly inclusive, with most ages and abilities being able to take part.

So let's get your teams active and motivated with your own challenge today.

Two phones show both the virtual walking route screen, which shows the teams' progress along the map, and the activity feed screen, which shows the user's distance entries and synced steps.

Use your step count to move you along a virtual map

Our system allows your users to use their daily step count, such as walking around the neighbourhood or going for a jog in the park, into movement along one of our 300 virtual maps.

Your participants sign up online to your private challenge, track their activity using their smartphone or pedometer, and get themselves walking through the hills of Italy, over the beaches of the Caribbean or along the Great Wall of China itself!

You are in complete control of your company challenge and can customise it to just how you need it. It's a great way to motivate your workforce, friends and family to be more active.

We've packed Big Team Challenge with as many fun, intuitive and unique features as we possibly could, and are always working on more. Whether you are running a company walking challenge, or raising money via a charity walking event, we've got you covered!

Here's a few of our favourite walking routes

Mainland Scotland

Lisbon to Carcassone: Beginning at Europe’s most westernmost capital city on the Atlantic coast at the start of the European long-distance footpath, E7, this walk takes in 4 countries before ending in one of France’s most beguiling locations.

Brazil: The largest country in Latin America covering almost half of South America's landmass. A colourful, flamboyant country, rich in heritage and cultural. Home to most of the Amazon Rainforest and world-famous beaches and carnivals. Have fun!

All of our walks are different lengths to accommodate teams of different sizes and abilities. While it would be great if everyone could walk their 10,000 steps a day, sometimes that’s a little harder for some than others. 

Each of our routes come with gorgeous images of the locations you visit along the way, as well as tons of fascinating information about every stop. We’ve had amazing feedback about our maps and how they have helped make the challenge more interesting and engaging. 

We're making new routes every week, so who knows, we might stop by your own hometown soon!
