How does the Step Challenge Work?

A smart device such as a Fit Bit, smart phone, etc, is required in order to track your steps. Prior to the Challenge, registrants will receive an email explaining how to download and use the app. Note that if you downloaded the app last year, you will need to download it again. Participants can plot their own course, or use one of the courses below. All steps taken from 12:01 am on Oct. 2nd through 11:59 pm on Oct 9th, will be counted by the app.
