About the Active Swindon Challenge

The Active Swindon Challenge was an app-based motivational tool that encouraged residents, workers and visitors to walk, cycle and take public transport.  Users competed as individuals or teams and gain points that contribute towards prizes and rewards.

We ran the app through 2022 and awarded numerous prizes, t-shirts and chocolate bars to winners of monthly competitions.

Over the 12 months, 548 registered users clocked up an average of 3850 points, which is the equivalent to 192 miles of walking / cycling per user.  However, 64% of registered users failed to log a journey, and the app is not cost effective to run on an ongoing basis.

We are no longer in contract with the app developer, and so technical issues are no longer supported.  We will consider new challenges in the future, and can recommend Betterpoints as an alternative in the meantime.
