Derby Active Relay Challenge

Derby Active Relay

Fri 6 Nov 2020

Lets all challenge ourselves this November, how many miles can Derby Active clock? 

The Derby Active Relay is a free activity over the month of November for everyone to join. Over the month lets see how many miles/kilometers we can log and then we will map how far collectively we have traveled. 

You can, walk, jog, run or cycle your way in this challenge, we just want to see your miles.

Every step is a little further traveled and we need you to join us. 

If you can, getting out in the fresh air can be a great benefit especially in the winter months. Benefits include topping up much needed vitamin D,  boosting your immune system and improving overall mental and physical health. An added bonus is that the cold lowers the heart rate and blood pressure when we exercise so it doesn’t feel as though we are exerting yourself like it would during the summer months.

Top tips for exercising outside this month

  • Dress dry and dress in layers
  • Insure adequate clothing; reflective or bright clothing correct footwear for the darker hours and slipper surfaces
  • Stay hydrated
  • Protected your extremities think gloves, thick socks, hats and snoods
  • Pick routes that you know and that are well lit

To register your steps for the challenge all you need to do is:
