Online Activity Challenge Launched to Motivate Workplaces to 'Move a Little More'!

Fancy being rewarded for simply moving a little more? The activity challenge as part of the Leicester Business Festival is the perfect incentive to bring a bit more activity into your working day! Whether it's cycling to the office, running with your colleagues at lunch, or just making sure you meet your daily steps target, these all count as activity!

The challenge set up by Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport (LRS) allows you to log your walking, running and cycling activity and convert them into points! The more activity the more points you will earn and the more likely you are to win one of the fantastic spot prizes that are on offer!

Other prizes that will be on offer include, Most Active Workplace and Most Active Individual. This way, whether you are a small business of 1 or 2 staff or a much larger organisation, everyone has a chance of winning. So why not get a team of colleagues together and see how many points you can rack up over the challenge?

To take part simply create a profile and 'join' this challenge, using the links below. Then from Monday onwards start logging your activity! Activity and you will be automatically added to the leader board. Remember, points mean prizes!

Bryany Cornish, Assistant Sports Development Officer said:

"The activity challenge can be a brilliant motivator for getting more active, as logging your activity can help you to stay on track with your goals! Not to forget it is a great way to start some friendly competition amongst colleagues. Setting up lunchtime running groups, going for walking meetings, or cycling for some or all of your journey to work are easy ways to introduce a bit more activity into your working week, and by using the Activity Tracker you can be rewarded for the little things!"

The challenge will take place from Monday 28th October, until Friday 8th November.

Prizes for the overall winners will be awarded at the Leicester Business Festival closing event on the 8th November 2019.

The Leicester Business Festival 2019 is running from 28th October until 8th November. It's set to be an exciting two week, full of educational events that will benefit the whole business community in the region.

Last year saw nearly 1,300 unique businesses* got involved. That's an increase of 16 per cent on the previous year. This figure includes businesses of all sizes from micro businesses up to large corporates – not just SMEs.

And the LBF is pleased to report that 87 per cent of you felt that the Business Festival had a positive impact on you or your business. That means the Festival is continuing to create lots of learning, sharing collaborating and ultimately, business growth opportunities - not to mention, interest from inward investors.

So join in and attend the free seminars, workshops and other various events for FREE and see your business develop!
