What is the SCOA Globe Walk & What Do We Do?
The Globe Walk is a annual fitness challenge for those who are 50+ years of age. Challenge yourself and motivate others to take part in a fun winter fitness program – with a bonus of great social activities. You’ll stay active and work with your team to achieve an awesome new Globe Walk goal.
Stroll or roll, hike or bike, swim or gym …
Any type of physical activity counts!
Your favourite form of activity will help Globe Walk reach new heights in 2021. 1300 steps counts as 1 kilometer. For those who prefer activities that can’t be measured in steps or distance, you can log 2 kilometers for every 30 minutes of physical activity. We’ll begin the challenge in January 2021 and continue counting kilometers until April 30, 2021. Any type of physical activity counts toward the goal.
Its easy and fun to track your kilometers.
At the end of each month you will give your team captain your total steps, distance traveled or amount of time spent in physical activity for that month. You can download a tracking calendar from the Captains page or pick one up at the SCOA office. Team Captains will submit team totals to the SCOA Globe Walk Coordinator.
We encourage the use of fitness tracking devices, pedometers or cell phone apps to help you keep track of your efforts as well as motivate you to reach your goals.
