South Australia's 2020 Billion Steps Challenge

South Australia - let's keep opening our world to being active every day!

The Challenge was set on 1st October 2020 and South Australian's have embraced tracking their activity - working together to log one billion steps target in 65 days! 

We know that every step counts and the more we move, the more health benefits we reap! So, we encourage you to challenge yourself, your family, friends and workmates to log steps and stay motivated to achieve your daily steps goal.

Congratulations South Australia! Together we successfully reached the 1,000,000,000 challenge goal in 65 days!

Can I use 10,000 Steps beyond the Billion?


Even thought the Billion Steps Challenge is finished, you can still use the 10,000 Steps program to stay on track and motivated to reach your daily goals - it's easy, free and has some great features:

Every step counts, every move counts.

Tracking your steps is a great motivation to keep moving through the day. Set yourself a daily goal and use a pedometer, Fitbit, Garmin or other activity tracker to stay on track. Whether it's a planned walk that you do regularly or incidental movement across the day, the more you move - the better your body and mind will feel!

A message from the Premier

Steven Marshall - SA Premier

There are so many amazing places to walk here in SA, from our newly opened Myponga Reservoir, to our famous Mt Lofty and picturesque Morialta Falls - now is the time to get out and about with family and friends to reap the health and wellbeing benefits of South Australia’s first Billion Steps Challenge.

Good luck to everyone participating!


What our 2020 Billion Steps participants had to say...

I loved the idea, motivating to be part of a huge state wide challenge.
The Billions step challenge encouraged me to aim for a goal each day of being active.
I liked having a shared challenge. SA isn’t a very big place, so it is nice to know that as a team we walked a billion steps.
During a rough year has been nice to have something positive to bring the team together. The steps challenge has definitely improved my fitness, even on the days i was too tired i did not want to let the team down so would go for an extra walk to get my steps up. I am looking forward to making this a part of my day to day life.
