How are runs calculated? Based on weekly team average Monday through Sunday. Riverside Analytics department reviewed data from our past walking challenge and came up with the breakdown below:

  • < 44k steps – 0 runs
  • 44k-46k steps – 1 run
  • 46k-48k steps – 2 runs
  • 48k – 50k steps – 3 runs
  • More than 50k steps – 4 runs

Runs will be updated every Monday of the challenge.

Ties will be broken by the total number of steps the assigned GM’s earn during the challenge. The GM with the most steps will serve as the tie breaker.

Participants do not have to have a wearable tracking device to participate in team challenge. They can use their phone app and manually enter the steps. However, to be entered into the contest to win tickets a wearable device must be linked to the participants REACH portal for verified steps.

Don’t have a tracking device? A Fitbit Zip can be purchased through the REACH department for $20 prior to the start of the challenge. Contact Lynn Christian @ extension 6078 if you would like one, supplies are limited.
