Time to lace up! How far can you go during the month of July?! This challenge promotes employee wellness by encouraging participants to move more during the day! Participants may use a supported activity tracking device to record the daily distance traveled or input manually. 

Challenge details:

  • This challenge will run for the month of July.
  • The top five individuals with the highest total distance traveled will win a BeWell prize!
  • Every participant who records a minimum of 62 miles (2 average daily miles) will receive a participation award.
  • In the leaderboard, each participant can see where they stand in relation to other participants, although the names remain anonymous.
  • Devices (like Fitbits) should sync every day, but participants may take up to three days after the log date to sync or manually input data.
  • You can either link one tracker (Fitbit, Garmin, etc.) OR enable phone integration (Apple or Samsung Health)-you cannot do both. i.e. if you enable Apple Health when you download the ChallengeRunner app, it will unlink your Fitbit.
  • Although activity trackers are supported, they are not required. Participants may enter their own data using the ChallengeRunner website ​or ChallengeRunner smartphone apps.
  • Join the challenge anytime during the July (you can enter your dataup to 3 days after 7/31).
  • Admin support from BeWell, including a list of FAQs!

 You must use the invitation link​ to register, then you can track progress through the app or website!
