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. 


  1. Sign up to the Family 1k-a-day challenge. 
  2. Choose your start date. 
  3. Walk, run, cycle, skip, hop jump one kilometre every day. Your 1k can be anything you like. 
  4. Track your progress on your challenge page. 
  5. You can also add comments and pictures to your page to let us know how you're getting on.

Once you've reached the end of your seven days we'll send you a personalised family certificate you can print off. 

You'll also get a 20% voucher for our Sustrans Shop.
