Start Building your challenge

Getting everyone moving in January

With winter falling fast and the urge to stay inside increasing with every drop of the thermometer, finding ways to keep yourself and others active is getting tough.

Why not walk the Gold Coast?

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 [Each team collects the steps of their team mates]
  • Teams track their progress against others on the leaderboard
