Virtual walking challenges

Having a more active NHS workplace or local community can have so many more benefits beyond the obvious health impacts. Running your own walking or step challenge in unison with your active travel program is a great way to make a lasting change.

Keep your staff and community active with a step challenge

At Big Team Challenge our goal is to help you create your own exercise challenge and change your participants' mindset about keeping active and improving their mental wellbeing.

Because every NHS Trust and local community is unique, with different target age groups, cultures and activity levels, we've kept our system as customisable as possible to help you achieve your goals.

Our public sector team challenges allow you to create exactly what need.

Try Our Step Challenge Demo

Sometimes it's just better to see things with your own eyes! That's why we've created a little team challenge demo for customers to try.

It replicates a team vs. team challenge already in progress, so you'll be engaging in the same way your own participants will be when you launch yours.

Quick and easy registration for your users

After all, this only works if your participants are truly motivated by the step challenge and can easily engage with it. We've spent 4 years developing this system so it works as seamlessly as possible.

After you initially tell your participants about the team fitness challenge and where to sign up, you can sit back and watch the rest unfold.

1. Easy Sign Up

Using the app, or your newly-set up step challenge website, participants can sign up using only their email, name and whatever password they choose.

2. Creating Teams

Once they are on the system, your participants can create teams and invite other users to join.

3. Step challenge apps, fitbit syncing, and more!

Once in a team, users can log their activity via the website and apps or they can sync their smart devices such as Fitbit, Garmin, Google Fit and Apple Health.

That's it, that's all that's required of them. Three simple steps and they can be up and moving in a few minutes!

Customisable Leaderboards

Have teams compete, individuals track their personal progress, or even have different areas or businesses in the community compete against each other in some friendly competition!

When you set up your challenge you can choose to enable one leaderboard or all three, it's entirely up to you and what works best for your workplace challenge.

Teams: Total Distance
A list of all of your teams as well as their total distances.

Teams: Average Distance
This also displays all of your teams, but this time displays their average total based on the number of people on their team.
So a team of 3 can compete evenly against a team of 10.

Individuals: Total Distance
Instead of displaying all of the teams, this leaderboard shows all of the individual users from every team
