Challenge Apps And Website

We've designed Big Team Challenge's system to be as open to as many users as possible. We have done this by building our system to be available on the web from your computer or tablet, but also via our iPhone and Android apps.

Customisable Leaderboards

Enabling different leaderboards in your challenge can help engage your participants by creating a more varied and even playing field for those wanting to compete or simply compare their progress in the step challenge.

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

Challenge Modes

When setting up your custom challenge, you can choose to either run it as a fun and friendly competition, with teams trying to complete the route and beat the others to the finish line, or as a group activity with each team contributing to the total distance.

Teams Vs Teams (most popular)
Our most popular mode and the easiest to set up; Teams vs Teams allows your participants to get into smaller teams and compete against each other on a leaderboard. This mode is a fun way to build some friendly competition and inspire daily physical activity.

One Big Challenge
All of your participants still get into teams, but now every team's total is pooled together to move everyone along the virtual map at the same time. This is a great way of seeing more of the world as you can cover much greater distances together!
