Frequently asked questions

When does the challenge start and finish?

The challenge starts at 00.01am on Monday 22 November 2021 and officially finishes at 11.59pm on Sunday 5 December 2021.

What activity can I submit?

  • Running includes walking and jogging, indoors and outdoors.
  • Cycling includes outdoor and indoor cycling (as long as distance is tracked).
  • Swimming includes swimming indoors and outdoors.

Tracked walks will still count in the running challenge.

Individual walks and runs must be submitted rather than daily activity totals from smartwatches or phones.

Does exercise as part of another activity count?

The purpose of the activity must be to run/walk, swim or cycle. Any of these that happen as part of another sport, for example running around a football pitch, does not count.

Please note: this challenge is about encouraging all people to get active. Any action deemed against this inclusive ethos may result in disqualification. Please be conscious of your own and others' safety when taking part in the challenge. Adhere to the Green Cross Code when near roads and wear suitable and visible clothing and footwear.
