Starting on 2nd September, Stephen, Chris, Ian, Kevin, Cathy and Isabella plus some ”better halves’ are participating in a 100 Day Race, called Stepathlon.
So how does it work? Essentially there are teams of five, competing against each other. Each person is issued with a pedometer. Participants enter their daily steps into the Stepathlon ‘course’ via the Stepathlon website. Steps are converted into kilometres as teams engage in an online race around a virtual world. Credits can also be earned for cycling, swimming, yoga etc. We will be competing against not only our two office teams but also teams across the globe.
What’s the point? To get moving and get more active. The aim is to get to 10,000 steps per day which equates to 6.5 kilometres. At the same time we are raising money for charity.
Here are some interesting facts for you to mull over:
1.It takes 6,452 steps to walk off a serving of fries
2.It takes 5,238 steps to walk off a slice of pizza.
3.69% of men think they’re fit. 13% actually are!
