Distance tracking

How do I track my steps?

add remove

There are two ways you can log your steps:

1. Manually in your Fundraising Dashboard

You can count your steps or KMs manually and upload them to your Dashboard.

Scroll down and navigate to “My Fitness Activity", here you can enter the details for your activity. Don’t forget to click ‘Save”.

2. Use Fitbit, Garmin or Map My Fitness to automatically track your steps or distance.

Scroll down and navigate to “My Fitness Activity" in your Super Steps dashboard and select your preferred fitness app, then follow the prompts to sign in or create an account. 

To create an account, download the FitbitMapMyFitness or Garmin app and follow the prompts to set up your account.

Once you've logged in to your fitness app from the link in your Super Steps dashboard, follow the prompts to connect your account.

If you are using Garmin or Map My Fitness, when you next work out, select start your workout in the app on your phone, and select stop when complete. Once you end your workout make sure you save it in the app and your distance will be published to the tally on your Super Steps dashboard the following day.

If you have synced your app already but it is not working, please log in and re-connect it.

If you are using Fitbit, your daily cumulative steps will sync to Super Steps at the end of each day. If you start and activity and save it, only that activity will sync to Super Steps.

If you are having issues, try syncing through BOTH your Fitbit and the Fitbit app on your smartphone. 

Your tally will be updated each day with the previous day’s distances.

My kms are already showing on my fundraising page and the challenge hasn't started?

add remove

Don't worry that's normal! All steps will re-set for the official challenge start on 1 May. So go ahead and get those training steps in.

The incorrect distance is showing on my activities list/total challenge distance?

add remove

If your total tracked steps are not what you expect it to be, check your activities list and see if there are any duplicated activities.

To see your activities list login to fundraising dashboard. Scroll down and navigate to “My Fitness Activity” tap. Here you will be able to see all you activities. You can edit or even delete activities.

Don’t forget, if you have connected a Fitness app tracker, your activity should automatically update in your Super Steps Hub and you don't need to manually add anything. Only activities from the date that the app was connected will be recorded (no past activity will be logged).

Challenge - general

Do I need to be able to run to join the challenge?

add remove

We welcome (and encourage) all types of steps. Walking, running, rolling, dancing, etc. The challenge is yours to set your own distance and fundraising goal, so feel free to get creative in how you achieve these steps.

It's your responsibility to ensure your health and safety as part of the challenge.

Is there a minimum or maximum distance?

add remove

It's up to you!

It might help to break you challenge down into how often you can intentionally walk/run per week and how far you think you can step. Maybe go out for a walk during your lunch break or grab your friends and walk to the coffee shop. You can even count the daily incidental steps to your tally – it’s your challenge!

Remember you'll feel great if you pick a distance that's challenging and achievable!

Any other questions?

I love Starlight, but this challenge isn’t for me – how else can I support?
