This year, the RWTH Aachen University Sports Center (HSZ), in cooperation with TK Aachen, set in motion a new initiative. Under the motto: “Every step counts”, 392 people in 134 teams took part in the Pedometer Team-Challenge. Teams competed with each other and the team with the most steps won the challenge. By the end of the challenge an incredible step count of 49’000’000 had been reached, thereby falling only slightly short of circumnavigating the globe. In total, calories equivalent to 3’650 chocolate bars were burned.

The winners could look forward to prizes sponsored by the TK. Additionally, teams automatically entered in a raffle as part of the RWTH FH Sports Day 2018. We congratulate the participants for their perseverance and impressive step count!
