ACTIVE 10 - Brisk Walk Challenge

ACTIVE 10 - Brisk Walk Challenge

About this activity

Suitable for all schools.  Supports the PE National Curriculum.

Here at TfL, we’ve partnered with Public Health England’s Active 10 campaign to challenge all Londoners to walk briskly for 10 minutes twice a day and track progress with the Active 10 app.

The walk to and from school is a great opportunity to get adults and kids to fit walking into their day. Parents can leave the car at home and either walk all the way or take public transport and walk part of the way to school. Parent and older students can download the app and see how many minutes of brisk walking they do a day.

Get in touch with Public Health England at [email protected] to order the full pack including wall chart, posters and stickers.

Or alternatively you can download the app and get involved as a class by walking briskly for 10 minutes during break times or as part of physical education.
