2021 Ultimate Mileage Battle: Fall into Fitness Edition: Step Competition 

 

The Ultimate Mileage Battle is back with a spring edition! It's time to get back to it! 

 Moving again will feel better than...

 

Online shopping

Sitting for hours

Watching shows

Scrolling through social media

List goes on...

 

We hope the spring edition motivated you with your fitness and you were able to maintain it throughout the summer.

The Ultimate Mileage Battle is back with a twist (suspenseful music, please). . .

. . .We are welcoming the students to participate with their school, competing for the traveling trophy sitting in the Graduate School-- the previous champion!

 

Join your school or work area or create a team of your own to compete against the others for the Step Champion Title! Please submit a team name to HRWell@umaryland.edu as soon as you can for proper enrollment.  Students may join a staff/faculty team that is already established or can create their own team name. Rookies are welcome to the Ultimate Mileage Battle and will be entered into a raffle prize for participating for the first time in UMB's step challenge.

The school or area that has the highest daily step average earned between Oct 11 and Nov 5* will be the winner. Other recognitions will be awarded at the end of the challenge. Different types of physical activity will count toward your steps, and you can use the new feature to convert your activity into steps. *You will have a grace period to enter in all your steps by Nov 15. 

Please remember to log in your steps every week so you don’t lose track. You will have 8 days to go back to log. (Tip: create an alarm on your calendar to prompt you to log your steps)
