Step-tember 2021

Step-tember 2021

From: £20.00

Step-tember is a unique month-long stepping challenging throughout September. Back now for its Sixth year, it is a fully inclusive event and encourages walkers, runners, and wheelchair users to take on a physical challenge and support the work of an amazing charity, Rooprai Spinal Trust (RST).

IMPORTANT: Once you’ve paid for your place, please check your sign-up email for instructions on how to finish setting up your account.

Introducing The Leveler

Our ‘leveler system’ means that anyone with a disability can compete fairly and be in with a shout of topping the leader board. In effect, it’s a multiplier that will multiply someone’s steps, because we know that someone with a high-level spinal cord injury will put in the same effort, but will travel a shorter distance. The leveler can be personalized by each user so that they can compete fairly as a disability is never the same for everyone.

The leveler is in place for anyone who feels like they may need it but you do not have to use it to take part in Steptember!

Record your daily steps, or the distance you roll, throughout September, add them to your profile and see how you compare to other individuals, within your mini team, and against other teams.

This year we will be giving you two options when signing up for the event. As usual, you will have the opportunity to receive a medal once the challenge has been completed, or, you can now donate the medal and postage cost towards RST alongside our own donations from every entry. We are hoping to be able to beat last year’s donations by hitting £5,000!

Who can take part?

Anyone and everyone; Step-tember is a fully inclusive event. There is no minimum daily amount of steps /distance you need to add. So if you’re out for a stroll with the dog, pottering around the home, training for a marathon, a manual wheelchair user, or a power chair user, you can all join in the fun.

How it works

  1. Sign Up

    Sign up, log into your account to finish your setup. Here you can join an existing team or create your own! Once we hit the 1st of September the fun really begins.  If you are wanting to pay for a whole team to take part, then please drop me an email and we’ll get you going!

  2. Get out stepping!

    Now for the whole month, you can count your steps, pushes, or distance traveled. This doesn’t have to exclusively be from exercise, you can record everything throughout the day!

    Make sure that you keep your account up to date on the website though as you can only backdate them by three days.

  3. Compete

    Now it’s time to compete against not only everyone in your own team but as a team against everyone else as you try and take that coveted top spot. Do you have what it takes to be the biggest stepper of the competition?

    Throughout the competition, you’ll also be collecting virtual badges and trophies to celebrate you hitting amazing milestones.

  4. Medals and Trophies

    That’s right, everyone who signs up will receive a Steptember medal at the end of the event. Alongside the winning charity receiving a trophy, we will also have a trophy for the top stepper and the top team in the competition as well!
