Devon walking challenge taken to new heights

'Big Devon March' participants walk combined total of 68 million steps - the equivalent of walking around the world!

Just two weeks into the campaign, an annual event run by Active Devon, an impressive 68 million steps has been walked already - that's the equivalent of walking around the world. 

Throughout this month businesses across the county have been walking their socks off to get employees fitter and healthier. 

Exeter College are the biggest team taking part in the challenge. Matt Rowett, from the college, says: "The Big Devon March is a fantastic initiative that highlights the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle and our staff have fully embraced the challenge so far. 

"The benefits are endless, doing exercise is proven is help de-stress, say healthy, and be more efficient. We hope the the habits staff are picking up will last."

Find out more about the campaign in the short video above.
