Join The Walking Challenge!

A man walking past a wall that says Good

12 April 2018

We are delighted to announce the launch of another Walking Challenge.

There are many reasons why walking is good for your body - having a healthy heart and improving your joints and bones are just two, but did you know that physical activity is also beneficial to your mental health and wellbeing?
 
We're firmly behind the concept of exercising for better mental health and the annual challenge is now an established event in our wellbeing campaign.
 
Every year thousands of civil servants accept our challenge to walk 10,000 steps a day for 50 days and many people report that lower stress levels are one of the most significant outcomes of taking part.
 
Not sure the Challenge is right for you? Why not take our short quiz to get a feel for how much you're already walking, and how easily you could boost your step count?
 
Are you looking for a little encouragement to get moving? Or are you a pro walker who could help encourage and motivate others to get walking along with you?
 
Either way, The Walking Challenge could be for you. Sign up as an individual or start a team today!
