Queensland, are you up for the challenge?

Eager adults keen to explore beautiful Queensland between Cairns and the Gold Coast on foot are now one step closer to doing just that. Train with friends and colleagues to enjoy the launch of our new virtual 10,000 Steps walking tournament.

The 10,000 Steps project, a health promotion program funded by Queensland Health and managed by Central Queensland University, will encourage adults to put on their activity trackers to monitor and increase their daily physical activity.

The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) themed journey invites participants to track their steps on a virtual walking tournament between the Event Cities (Cairns, Townsville and Brisbane) to the Host City—the Gold Coast.

Participants log their steps on a daily basis and follow their progress on the virtual venues’ tour. A total of 2,246,726 steps are required to complete the tournament. 10,000 Steps encourages users to complete this tournament as a team (recommended 10 per team).
