What is the Step Challenge?


We’ve changed!

As part of the launch of our new Active Travel Logger and Step Counter App, we’re changing the name of our national walking promotion to the Step Challenge.

And it’s not just our name that’s changed – we’ve a great new logger, an app and a new leaderboard.  We look forward to hearing what you think of them!


What is the Step Challenge?

The Step Challenge is a fun, free walking promotion for Smarter Travel Workplaces and Smarter Travel Campus Partners, where teams of 3-6 people aim to increase their daily step counts, to have fun and to win prizes!
