Team members record their walking or running activities from Monday 31 May – Sunday 6 June inclusive on an app (e.g. strava, apple health) or a pedometer and the weekly total is added to the team scorecard. The winning team is the one with the highest mileage at the end of the week.
Team members can run or walk as far as they like and wherever they like (including at work) whilst adhering to government advice.

Screenshots of your activities, added up to a weekly total in km should be submitted to the team leaders as evidence – for ED please send to [email protected], for AMU send to [email protected] Entries must be in by midnight on Sunday 6th June.
Team members must be employed by the specialty team in the week of the challenge (but not necessarily in work – i.e. can be on leave)
Each team member pays an entry fee (anything from £2 upwards) which goes toward the charity total. We have chosen Vaccinaid, a global health project working to provide which provides vaccines, test and treatments to countries around the world where they are most needed. A fundraising page has been set up for this purpose: – please attach a name to your donation so we can see who has entered. Donations can be made retrospectively but mileage will not be counted if the donation has not been made by the cut off time.
Each team’s scorecard may be scrutinized by the opposing team for fairness
Good luck and happy striding!
