How to log your steps

There are two ways to track your steps:

Option 1: Connect your fundraising page via a fitness app (i.e. Strava, Fitbit or MayMyFitness)

Option 2: Log your steps manually

Please note all steps logged before October 1st will be removed once the event officially begins.

Log yours steps MANUALLY

This is a great option if you're using a pedometer or a different method of tracking your distances.

2. Go to 'My Dashboard' and then 'My Fitness Activity'

3. Scroll down to 'Add Activity'

4. Enter the 'Date' and 'Steps'

Your steps/kms will be added to your fundraising page to track your progress throughout the month.
