2018 Active Workplace Challenge - Norfolk

Make Every Minute Count in 2018!

Busy, modern lifestyles are making it hard to fit in exercise into our daily routine. Shockingly we are 20% less active now than we were in the 1960's and it's time to make a change!

Active Norfolk's 2018 Workplace Challenge is back for eight weeks, running from January 8th with the aim of encouraging you and your colleagues to reduce your stress, improve your wellbeing and re-energise by building in 10-minute bite-sized chunks of activity into and around the working day.

Taking part in the Active Workplace Challenge can be the perfect catalyst to helping you to make some small changes that can have a big impact on your health and wellbeing in 2018.

Win prizes!

There are both local and national prizes to give away during the 2018 Active Workplace Challenge.

Local prizes - To help support and encourage local participation in the 2018 Active Workplace Challenge, a number of local businesses have generously provided us with some amazing spot prizes to give away each week during the challenge. Every week you log an activity as part of the challenge, you will be entered into a draw to win one of our local prizes!

Extra prizes for Active Travel - We have got extra prizes to give away to those who log any walking or cycling as active travel during the challenge. So, swap the car for two legs or two wheels on your way to the shops, work or to visit friends and family. You could find that it will save you time as well as money. Even if you can't walk or cycle the whole distance, maybe you could find a way to incorporate it into part of your journey. Simply tick the active travel box when logging walking and cycling (when this activity forms part of a journey).

How to get involved

Log your activity via our online tool, automatically track your activity with the Workplace Challenge app or connect to Fitbit.

We have produced a poster to promote the Active Workplace Challenge, so do a print run and re-decorate your workplace by wallpapering your noticeboards, break rooms and canteens to spread the word. Don't forget the backs of the toilet doors and to recycle afterwards!
