Active Travel Challenge
During March we challenge you to swap the car for two legs or two wheels. Log your Active Travel throughout March 2017 and have the chance to win one of the great prizes on offer! The challenge will run between 1st March - 31st March 2017
Log your Active Travel throughout March 2107 and have the chance to win one of the great prizes on offer! Prizes include high street shopping vouchers, premium bike service, cinema tickets and bike cleaning kits.
If you run, walk or cycle instead of using motorised transport, largely for functional reason e.g. travelling to work, the local shop or a leisure activity it can be counted as active travel.
Not only will walking, running or cycling save you money, it may also save you time and will also help you reach the recommended guidelines of 150 minutes of moderate physical activity each week.
Don't forget when you log your walking, running or cycling activity to tick the box that says 'ACTIVE TRAVEL?'

Workplace Challenge is a national programme funded by Sport England which aims to engage workplaces in sport and physical activity. By using the activity log, employees can record their levels of sport, physical activity and active travel online, set personal goals and challenge their colleagues, friends and other workplaces through the Workplace Challenge leaderboards.
There will be the chance to take part in inter-workplace competitions, earn points for cycling or walking and create leagues between your workmates.
There is also a calendar of competitions that businesses can take part in - recent activities include football, archery, canoeing and cricket.
