Partnering with the 10,000 Steps program, Onkaparinga’s challenge allows you to track your steps and activity, view step stats over time, connect with friends, and have the opportunity to win prizes directly from 10,000 Steps. But you don’t have to focus on walking.
The challenge is open to anyone—regardless of age, ability, or fitness. Activities such as competitive sport, horse riding, dancing and aerobics can also count towards your steps tally. 10,000 Steps has created a fantastic steps conversion document if walking/running is not for you. If walking/running is for you and you do not own a pedometer/step app, no worries, use the step conversion document to convert your moderate or vigorous walking/running/activity minutes to steps. Download the Steps Conversion document and as a guide:
10 minutes of moderate intensity activity = 1,000 steps
10 minutes of vigorous intensity activity = 2,000 steps
Although you are signing up as an individual, you are a part of the City of Onkaparinga Team. Once you register with 10,000 Steps you will be able to access the total step tally when you open the challenge card on your dashboard when logged into your 10,000 Steps account.
