Check back later for updates about the next upcoming challenge!

How does it work?

  • Gather your co-workers and create a walking team - between 2 and 8 people.
  • To sign up you must choose a team leader. Your team leader will be the ONLY ONE who registers your team.
  • Track your steps any way you choose - cell phones, Fitbits, pedometers all apply. inBalance pedometers are available upon request for City of Springfield employees.
  • All steps count - walking, running, weekday, weekend, at work, at home.
  • If you are a City of Springfield employee and need a pedometer, please contact [email protected]

What's different this year?

  • There will only be 1 division this year, but your team will be competing against teams with similar mile averages.
  • At the end of each week, the average miles for each team will be reported out.
  • Your team will also be placed into one of 3 groupings, which will be determined by your team's average miles walked. There will be a first and second place in each of these 3 groupings.
  • Once your team moves up a grouping, you will continue in that grouping, unless you move up again. You will not be able to move back down, once you move up.
