Lockdown Challenge!

It has never been more important for you and your family to remain physically active.

Physical activity is good for the mind and body and so, throughout this Lockdown we are encouraging you to keep active and log your active minutes on our new Virtual Together app.

Your physical activity can take any form – running, walking, yoga, cycling, taking part in PE or sport – and can be done at any time and anywhere, as long as you follow the current Government guidelines.

The Challenge is aimed primarily at young people but we are encouraging the whole family to get involved and be Active Together!

Every time you complete the daily target of 60 minutes of activity (either in one go or over a number of separate days / sessions) your name will be entered into a prize draw at the end of the challenge. The more times you complete 60 minutes, the more times your name will go in the draw!*

You can upload your minutes on the app as often as you like in multiples of 5 minutes (5, 10, 15, 20 minutes etc…) and the app will automatically update your overall total!

  • The Challenge has now started and runs until 11:00pm on Sunday 21st February 2021.

Good luck and have fun!
