Sustrans’ free Virtual Family 1K-A-DAY challenge

Join walking and cycling charity Sustrans for a free virtual 1k-a-day challenge. 

Pledge to walk, run, cycle, skip, hop, jump 1 kilometre a day for a week. Complete it at your own pace and where best works for you, even your own home or garden. 

Enter online, choose your start day and stay active every day. 

Get inventive for your 1k-a-day challenge 

Each family member can do their own 1k each day. Or, you can split up the distance and do it as a family relay. Your 1k can be anything you like as long as it's active. Here are some suggestions:
  • Count your stairs and go up and down until you reach 1k. There are approximately 1,250 steps in a kilometre. A family of four would have to climb around 312 steps each to reach 1k! 

  • Download a free pedometer app and do laps of your house and garden.

  •  Work out a 1k route in your local area using Google maps and run, walk or cycle the route 

  • Create an obstacle course around your garden. You can make ramps, a slalom and take it in turns to complete a lap on your scooter. 

Remember to always comply with current government guidelines on social distancing.

How does the virtual challenge work? 

Once you’ve signed up, you’ll have access to your family challenge dashboard complete with a motivational rainbow that gets more colourful as you progress. 

You can add your own photos and comments and share your progress with friends and family. And when you've completed clocking up an impressive 1k-a-day for seven days, we’ll send you: 

  • your own personalised family certificate
