The Challenge


Regular physical activity can help prevent major illnesses and lead to a longer life. We’ve set up the challenge, now’s the time for you to get moving and make a change!

Given our busy modern lives, having the opportunity to spend quality time together as a family is so important. Few of us get to spend as much time as we would like with our nearest and dearest. Newham’s Million Miles Together will not only give you a reason to get out and about with your kids but will also provide the opportunity to teach them the importance of health and wellbeing; how physical activity doesn’t have to be a chore; and a real sense of community spirit when they can see how their activities can make a difference to the final total.

As a Family you can contribute miles to the overall Newham target of covering 1,000,000 miles in just 100 days!


  • Create a family team of as many members as you like
  • Clock up your miles by walking, running, swimming or cycling. If you would rather play sports, walk the dog, train in the gym, do aerobic classes, yoga or pilates to cover some miles then our unique Distance Calculator will convert pretty much any form of physical activity to miles. If any activity is missing from our Distance Calculator then simply email us and we will add it
  • We recommend that as a minimum you should aim to cover 1 mile per day
  • You can cover your miles anywhere, at any time
  • Log your activities directly on your account page
