    Clash of the Cougars Steps Challenge

    Clash of the Cougars!

    Stepping Out to Compete

    Earth's circumference is an amazing 24,901.55 miles in diameter. This amounts to 131,480,184 feet if a person were to walk around the Earth once.


    Your challenge, if you accept it, is to record the amount of steps that you walk in a week's time and share your distance with your academic team by completing the form linked below (or, click on the cougar head to the left).
    Weekly tallies will be subject to random checks for verification. Academic team totals will be compiled weekly and points will be distributed for teams based on the amount of steps. Let's see which team can make it around the world first AND THEN how many laps around the world each team can complete!

    The final count will take place on May 1st, 2021. Time to get your step on!!
