The sun sets on our walking challenge

28 Jul 2021

As our year end drew to a close the sun also set on our Strava walking challenge, Time to Wander and Ponder | Leicestershire Cares , as many of the Leicestershire Cares team take a well-earned relaxing break .

In total over 13 weeks, we walked 2782 km, with the winning team being the first to reach the home destination of our offices in Tower Street Leicester and completing the target of 1393 Km. The runner up team were only short of winning by 10kms.

It has been great to see staff using our green spaces in Leicester city and county and pushing themselves each day to get out in the fresh air and exercise. The healthy competition, and team spirit has had a positive effect on the wellbeing of many staff at Leicestershire Cares.

The walking challenge has been a great initiative and the competitive element has been a great motivator especially for the more competitive staff members. My daily walk/ run is definitely a habit I’ll be keeping long after the challenge has finished.
