Rainbow virtual 1kaday challenge

How to take part?

Each family member can do their own 1k each day. Or, you can split up the distance and do it as a family relay.

Here are a few of our ideas to get you started: 

  • Count your stairs and go up and down until you reach 1k. There are approximately 1,250 steps in a kilometre. For a family of 4 that would mean climbing 312-steps each! 
  • 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.
