Colchester Walking Challenge 5-19th May 2017

In celebration of Living Street’s National Walking Month, the Colchester Travel Plan Club in partnership with Active Essex’s Workplace Challenge are launching a Walking Challenge for Colchester businesses and organisations!

Walking is a great way for your employees to get active and much easier than most activity to build into a daily routine. Introducing some walking during the day boosts productivity as well, so a lunch time walk, walking to a meeting or even holding a walking meeting can all have business benefits.

Our challenge to you is to see how many employees you can encourage to walk the recommended 150 minutes a week during the Walking Challenge?

We will be holding prize draws for those that achieve at least 150 minutes of walking each week, we will also reward the most Active Travellers, and the department that walks the most.

But we also want to pit organisation against organisation and see what Colchester company tops the leader board as walking the most!

Throughout the challenge you will be able to see where your organisation is placed on the leader board and also within your organisation the top departments taking part (if applicable) and most active individuals.

To sign up to the Walking Challenge visit the Active Essex Workplace Challenge website

To encourage your staff to take part, why not offer some lunchtime walks, cancel some booked meeting rooms and hold the meeting while walking, promote Jane’s Walk a whole weekend of walks in Colchester between the 5 – 7th May , (more on the Jane’s Walk facebook page ) and check out Living Streets handy hints and tips.
