Step outside the office this Spring and join the Big Devon March

Can you help your colleagues make a walk part of their work?  The Big Devon March, the county’s hottest walking campaign is back this Spring challenging every business in Devon to walk a little more before, during and after the working day.

Following the success of the campaign last year, more Devon businesses are invited to join in 2018, competing in small teams of up to six people. Every team member logs every mile they walk through an easy app and collectively their goal is to walk 630 miles during March – that’s the same as walking the entire length of the South West Coastpath!

“Last year 77 businesses took part and absolutely loved the simplicity of the Big Devon March challenge” said Tom Mack who is leading the campaign on behalf of Active Devon.”We’ve  mixed it up for 2018 so that people compete in small teams and there are plenty of prizes to be won as teams fight it out for top spot on the leaderboard”.

The Big Devon March is run by Active Devon on behalf of Devon County Council, with funding awarded by the Department for Transport’s Sustainable Travel Transition Fund. It’s all about inspiring us all to be creative in the ways that we fit more walking into our everyday routines. Walking is well known to have a fantastic range of benefits; mental, physical and emotional, which all play an important part in workplace wellbeing.

It’s all completely free and lots of fun. Fancy joining in? Register your interest or call  01392 925150.
