How do I track my steps?

Use your phone (step counters can be found in the health app on most phones) or smart watch to track your steps each day. At the end of the week submit your steps by either manually inputting them into our leader board app or by taking a picture or screen shot showing how many steps you had and provide the total weekly count.

*Don't have a way to track your steps? Semper Fit Human Performance has a limited amount of extra pedometers- email: to pick one up outside the gate at MCRD.

*Who can register?

All MCCS valid patrons can register for the challenge which includes: Active Duty, Dependents, Retirees and DoD employees. Ages 10yrs+ can participate.

What if I want to join but it's already been a week?

Registration is open till Aug 16th  but for best results and chances to win enter by August 10th! There will be rewards for weekly winners and weekly meet ups online for group motivation.

What's the difference between categories?

Picking the right category for you will even the playing field. What is your current activity level?

If you only walk occasionally or to get places and do not run for exercise then "Entry Level Stepper- Walking Only" is right for you. This category will help you stay true to the goal of trying to reach 10k steps a day or work towards that average.

If you are a runner or walk consistently throughout the day for your work and have no trouble reaching or exceeding 10k steps a day then "Intermediate/Advanced Level Stepper-Walk/Run to Get Steps" is the best category for you.

Choosing the appropriate category will help you compete with people just like you and have more chances to win based on your current level of stepping.

How are prizes awarded?

At the end of the 30 day step challenge the registrant with the most steps from each category will win a grand prize.  All those who participate will be entered into an opportunity drawing for an additional prize just for showing up on top of receiving their free reusable utensil/straw giveaway!

1) Entry Level Stepper winner takes home: San Diego Zoo membership (includes 1 adult pass and two children)

2) Intermediate/Advanced Stepper takes home: $100 gift card to MCX
