Get Active in your area
We are running a rewards challenge in partnership with Norfolk County Council and the Pushing Ahead partnership.
This challenge is open to residents of Norwich and Great Yarmouth, where you can earn rewards for walking, running and cycling in Norwich and up to 10km outside the city and across the whole of Great Yarmouth.
Once you step outside your home you can earn BetterPoints for walking, cycling or running. Then use your BetterPoints to reward yourself, by selecting a reward, or donate them to a charity.
As well as earning points for recording your travel activity every day, every month we are giving away 10,000 BetterPoints (worth £10) to a new participant of the scheme.
