In order to engage everyone – not just those who are already fit and active – we offer three challenge options and a distance to suit everyone!

Option 1

Option 2

1,000 miles in 10 weeks – perfect for teams of 1-5. Create a team of friends, family or colleagues to join forces to cover 1,000 miles together. Ideal for having fun together and team building, you can cover the target distance by any form of physical activity from running, walking and cycling to football, yoga and exercise classes.

Option 3

10,000 miles in 10 weeks – the ultimate challenge for teams of 1-5 people. For anyone who really wants to challenge themselves and who are already reasonably physically active. Cover the target distance by any form of physical activity from running, walking and cycling to football, yoga and exercise classes.

Distance calculator and recording activities

One of the many features of the 1,000 Mile Challenge is our unique Distance Calculator. The Distance Calculator allows all sports and physical activities to be translated into miles and count towards the challenge target. Simply enter the type of activity, intensity and duration e.g. moderate yoga or pilates class for one hour, and see your efforts translated into miles. Miles that will then count towards the your, or your team’s, overall total.

Examples of activity conversions

Activity Kilometres Earned
Walk 5 miles 5 miles
Run 10 miles 10 miles
1 hour intensive spin class 15 miles
1 hour yoga class 2.7 miles
Tennis for 45 minutes 6.12 miles

Reporting

Each participant has a password protected profile page to record their personal activity data and can measure their progress against other challengers on the challenge leader boards. Participants also have the option to record and display key health numbers such as weight, BMI etc on their profile page.

Participants registering for the first time will be asked to complete a short confidential survey about their current levels of activity and health goals. At the end of the challenge they will be asked to complete the same survey again so that we can assess the healthy living benefits of the 1000 Mile Challenge . Premium customers will receive a post challenge report to help them gauge the impact of the 1,000 Mile Challenge on their organisation.
