Walktober is a fun team step challenge that runs in October each year. It is open to staff and students of workplaces and third level campuses who are partners of the Smarter Travel Workplaces & Campus programme.

Check if your workplace/campus is participating below – then get together with your colleagues to form a team of 3-6 people before Walktober starts on the 5th of October 2020.

Give your team a name and nominate a Team Captain. There will be a draw for Team Captain prizes at the end of the challenge. Each participant needs to have a working email address.

Your Team Captain will be the main point of contact for your team and will set up your team on our Active Travel Logger website.

Once the team is registered, all participants can set up their own account on the Active Travel Logger to log their own steps. If you don’t have access to a PC, tablet or smartphone, don’t worry – your Team Captain can still log on your behalf. Or if for some reason you can’t log your details on a given day, again your Team Captain can do this for you.

Your internal Coordinator and the National Coordinators will be in touch to let you know about competitions, prizes, leader-boards etc. once the challenge is live.
