Big Pledge gets underway

It's a terrific way to boost your wellbeing

Chris Williams, Wiltshire Council's portfolio holder for communities

Our Big Pledge challenge is now underway, and this year you have to Beat the Clock.

This is the fifth annual Big Pledge campaign, which aims to get more people active and taking exercise.

The campaign runs until 8 July 2018 and is open to enter now for all ages and every level of fitness and ability.

Participants can choose from a wide array of pursuits to complete their personal challenge, including football, cricket, tennis, basketball, athletics, dance, cycling, walking, running and badminton.

There are four levels of involvement:

  • Beat the Clock Challenge if you are new to activity or have a disability
  • Beat the Clock Plus Challenge if you are already active and looking to push yourself
  • Beat the Clock Team Challenge to do with colleagues, friends and family.
  • Beat the Clock Schools Challenge, with no limit on the numbers of pupils who can join in.

Chris Williams, Wiltshire Council's portfolio holder for communities, said: "Beat the Clock is a brilliant, enjoyable way of improving your fitness and getting the healthy benefits from taking exercise.

"Our annual challenge is always massively popular and thousands of people have already taken part and got a lot of pleasure out of it. It's a terrific way to boost your wellbeing."

It's not too late to get involved, to take part, simply sign up on our website where you can also see a full list of the activities available.

You will get your own Challenge Record page where you can plot your progress as you go along.

So, round up your friends, family and colleagues and get involved. Good luck!
