Join the 2022 South Australian Billion Steps Challenge

The Billion Steps Challenge sees South Australians collectively travel 1,000,000,000 steps as quickly as possible.

It took just 35 days to reach this goal in 2021, and this year we want to move even faster.

Billion Steps Challenge

Let's go to the moon and back!

South Australians, let's walk together to the moon and back and reach one billion steps in record time.
Day 6

One small step for you, one giant leap for South Australia

One billion steps is the equivalent of travelling from Earth to the moon and back, and that is the theme of this year’s third annual challenge.

Challenge yourself, your community and workmates and join us as we collectively walk, roll, and dance to the moon and back this October. Every move, no matter how small, can help us reach our goal.

Ready, set, lift off: when does the challenge start and end?

The challenge starts Saturday 1 October 2022 and will end when we collectively reach our goal of one billion steps.

All South Australians, of all abilities, can participate and join us as we travel through outer space, landing on the moon and returning to Earth.

How does it work?

The Billion Steps Challenge is a partnership between Wellbeing SA and the 10,000 Steps program.

Simply sign up to the 10,000 Steps program and your steps or other forms of physical activity will be automatically added to South Australia’s Billion Steps Challenge total.

If you are already signed up to the 10,000 Steps program, just make sure you are logging your total step (or activity) count so your numbers are counted in the state total.

You can sign up as a solo astronaut, but wouldn't it be more fun with a whole crew?

Support the 2022 Challenge by encouraging your networks and communities to participate. Our stakeholder pack includes social media assets and other resources to help promote the challenge.
