Stockton’s BIG Challenge returning June 2015

We’re happy to report that Stockton’s BIG Challenge will be returning in June this year! The Challenge will be running from 1st to the 30th June, it’s free to join and aims to encourage the residents and those working in Stockton to make more of their journeys by Active Travel (Walking, Cycling & Public Transport).  Everytime you walk more than 5 minutes or cycle further than a mile you can log your journey onto the website.  Whether that’s taking the dog for a walk or just popping to the shops.  They all count!  The total mileage, c02 saved and equivalent number of parmos burned will be totaled up for you and there’s some great rewards for taking part!

These include a raffle at the end of the challenge where some great locally sourced prizes are available.
