Personal Challenge Settings - Here you can set up your personal challenge, which you can track on your profile page.

Note: Don't underestimate your choice. The point of the Challenge is for you to meet or exceed your daily goal each and every day. If you set a goal of walking 1 km a day, that doesn't mean if you cover 30 km in one day, you've met your goal for the whole month of April. You just have to meet the limit every day. You are competing against yourself. It is only allowed to fail to meet the limit 3 times (3 days) out of the 30 days of the Challenge. If you fail to do so, you have lost and your other self has defeated you. So don't hesitate to pick and choose.

  • Turtle / I walk 1 km a day. Slowly, but surely, by small steps forward. I often surprise with my perseverance and as Aesop writes in his fable, don't be surprised if I reach the finish line before the hare.
  • Hedgehog / I walk 3 km a day. I don't walk much and I'm not very fast. But I go out every day and when I do, others know it. I go out to stretch my legs or to get supplies.
  • Giraffe / I walk 5 km a day. I walk slowly but surely. I keep my perspective and look around the countryside. I go into the field, rather shorter distances, but with discretion. When I have to, I can be fast, but why, right?
  • Cat / I walk 7.5 km a day. Walking or running is my daily routine. I scour the whole neighbourhood, wherever I need to get, I walk. I know my surroundings like the back of my paws and nothing escapes. Of course, rest is an obvious part of it, so no wonder if you find me lounging somewhere.
  • Dog / I walk 10 km a day. When I'm motivated, I can outdo myself. I like to be in a pack that I protect and inspire. You can count on me at any opportunity.
  • Meerkat / I walk 15 km a day. I move briskly and love to explore new landscapes. Sights and new places attract me with magical power, I can climb up quickly and have a good look around. Let me see as much as I can. And then quickly go somewhere else, as fast as I can.
  • Hare / I walk 20 km a day. Slow, fast. Jumps, steps. Often you don't even see me as I disappear into the distance. I just have to be careful not to rest on my laurels and see nothing but a turtle shell at the finish line.
  • Reindeer / I walk 30 km a day. Distances don't matter. I'm used to moving tens of kilometres a day. I walk steadily and I can be very fast if necessary. Long journeys are a lifelong challenge and a mental adjustment to me. At least I have time to think things through.

Once you complete the above step, you are taken to the Challenge web portal. Your profile is there and you are automatically participating AS AN INDIVIDUAL.

If you have team spirit, you can start a team or join one. If you do so, you will not only participate as an individual, but also AS A TEAM. Being on a team doesn't mean you have to walk together, it means that your team points add up.
