Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel 2023
Prince Rock are taking part in Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel 2023. It is the UK’s largest walking, wheeling, scooting and cycling challenge. It inspires pupils to make active journeys to school, improve air quality in their neighbourhood and discover how these changes benefit their world.
It’s more important now than ever to travel actively. Active travel is a great way to build physical activity into children’s daily routine. It helps them arrive to school more relaxed and alert, and is great for their mental wellbeing too. This year the challenge will run from 20–31 March 2023. It is free and easy to take part in Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel.
On each day of the challenge schools compete to see who can record the greatest number of pupils walking, using a wheelchair, scooting or cycling to school. A school’s best five days will determine their final position and schools at the top of their leaderboards will receive an exclusive Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel certificate.
All schools will be entered into daily prize draws for rewards if over 15% of your school takes part on each day of the challenge. Prizes up for grabs include accessories and equipment to help your school travel actively.
