What is a virtual walking challenge?

Big Team Challenge's virtual walking challenges allow you to create your own private activity challenge for you and your employees or charity group to participate in and track their physical activity over a number of weeks.

Get active and motivate your team!

We've built this special route to Lapland, but we also have over 300 other routes from all around the world. If you'd rather feel warm during winter, you can walk with your team around the Caribbean islands or across sunny Australia. Your real-world steps will be mapped on to the virtual route, making sure everyone stays active and allowing you to explore somewhere exciting this winter!

How it works

  • There's no limit to the amount of participants
  • Get organised into teams of between 2 and 20 people
  • Teammates add their steps into the team's collective total
  • Teams track their progress against other teams on the leaderboard
