Description:

The Active for Life Challenge with Fitness Trackers has the following characteristics:

  • In the leaderboard, each participant is able to see where they stand in relation to other participants using real names.
  • Participants are allowed to enter up to 150 minutes of activity each day.
  • Devices should be synced every day; however, participants may take up to five (5) days after the log date to sync data. 
  • Although activity trackers are supported, they are not required. Participants may enter their own data using the ChallengeRunner website or ChallengeRunner smartphone apps.

The Active for Life Challenge with Fitness Trackers will promote wellness by encouraging participants to move their bodies more often during the day. Participants may use a supported activity tracking device to record the minutes of activity taken and transmit this number into the ChallengeRunner.com system. The totals of those minutes are then compared against one another and a real-time leaderboard is made available.

In order to receive data from tracking devices, each participant must first install the appropriate software and create an account on the activity tracker's website. Every participant must then authorize ChallengeRunner.com to capture individual data as follows:

After logging in, the participant must click the Profile link at the top of the home page and then click the Authorize link. On the tracker website shown the user must enter their ID and Password they created when they first registered the device.

Once the device is authorized, the user must ensure that they connect their device to the activity tracker's website at least once per day to sync data.

This challenge will run for eight (8) weeks. Only up to ten (10) participants per team. At the conclusion of eight (8) weeks, the team with the top recorded minutes will be awarded the following:

Custom shirts with team name and team players listed.
