Contests

One of the advantages of walking is that it is a community activity. Walking is more enjoyable where there are other people walking. Contests capitalize on this social aspect of walking by building community amongst walkers.

Contests can also be used to improve the streetscape. By highlighting good or bad areas for walking, photo contests can help fellow walkers avoid challenging areas and identify trouble spots for the city.

“Walk Around the World” programs help provide individuals with a sense of accomplishment by tracking walking mileage. This can also be used for good-natured competition to encourage walking and fitness goals.
