If your team is having problems entering steps on the website please use the link below to submit them every Wednesday morning before 1pm and they will be included on the weekly leaderboard. https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2V8M8PY
 
Best of luck for Week 3!

Week 3 Challenge - Cork to Galway!
The Week 3 virtual challenge from Cork to Galway has already started - to reach Galway we need to clock up a Team Average of 90,000 Steps by midnight on Tuesday. How long will it take your team to get to Galway? Teams reaching this target will be included in a prize draw for Pedometer Challenge Travel mugs!
 
Winners of the week 2 virtual challenge will be announced on Friday - Best of luck everyone.
 
 
 
 
 
Win Challenge goodies!
What Interesting, Unusual and Fun Experiences did your team have over the last week?
Share your team experiences from last week’s 'virtual' walking trip to Cork or any other challenge related experiences that you've had over the past week and be in with a chance to WIN Challenge goodies! Email your story (a few lines is plenty) to by midnight tonight, Tuesday 1st of October to pedometerchallenge@smartertravelworkplaces.ie
 
 
   
   

Did you know that people who walk 10,000 steps per day expend an additional 2,000 to 3,500 calories per week! Another great reason to swap the car for a stroll to the shops or to get off the bus/train a stop early.
