The 30-day Winter Walking Challenge is a commitment to incorporating 30-minutes of walking (physical activity) into 30 consecutive work days. The challenge is designed to encourage you to incorporate walking activity into your daily routine.
Walking is an accessible form of exercise that is easy to do and does not require a gym. Making time for brief walking breaks throughout your day can provide numerous health benefits to include:
The 30-Day Winter Walking Challenge is open to all UMD faculty, staff, and graduate students. Faculty/staff do not have to work on the College Park campus to participate.
You may walk anywhere, anytime, Monday–Friday. Those who complete the challenge will have walked a minimum of 900 minutes or 60 miles by the end of the challenge. Challenge yourself to take a 30-minute walk with a colleague at lunch time or a 5-minute walk each day—it all counts—whatever works for you!
To participate in the Winter Walking Challenge log your daily time spent walking on a weekly form submitted online (via Wufoo). All participants successfully logging a minimum of 600 minutes (20-minutes/ day) will receive a participation prize. All participants logging a minimum of 900 minutes (30 minutes/ day) will be entered into a grand prize drawing.
To register, follow the steps in the 2017 Registration box on the right.
Refer someone to participate/complete the challenge and receive an additional prize entry into the grand prize drawing.
