APHA's Billion Steps Challenge — Log Your Steps or Activity

No device? No problem! You can enter your steps or activity for each day via the Walker Tracker app or website.

We want the Billion Steps Challenge to be accessible to everybody and every body. The Walker Tracker platform makes it easy to count the movement you do every day, whether that's swimming, using a wheelchair or any number of ADA-recommended activities.

Estimate your steps without a counting device

You can use an estimate of how far you walk in miles (or fractions of a mile) and calculate the steps. If you don't know the exact distance, just use your best estimate. For example, at a pace of three miles an hour, people typically take 2,000 steps per mile. So a day's estimate could be:

Leisure steps:
15 minutes, walk the dog
10 minutes, walk on a daily commute
15 minutes, walk with a colleague at work

Total: 40 minutes or 2 miles

Exercise steps:
3 miles during a workout on the elliptical machine at the gym

Total for the day: 5 miles
Total steps: 5 x 2,000 = 10,000 steps
