The Leaderboard ranks every team participating in Stepathlon based on their Daily Step Average.

Teams compete to be the “Most Active Team” and “Most Active Company” under various categories.
Every step that a Stepathlete enters into the Stepathlon Course Website is recorded and graphed on this page. With a simple click of a button Stepathletes can see the calories or kilojoules they have burnt, how many kilometres they have walked and how their team has performed.
With articles on health and fitness, personalized responses to all health queries by our Chief Wellness Officer, Shane Bilsborough, and printable Pin-Ups on how to get healthy, this is a one stop destination for everything related to health and fitness. We also have a Food for Thought section that will help identify healthy alternatives to hundreds of commonly consumed foods. In this section, Stepathletes can also track their BMI and Weight to monitor their progress.
Stepathlon is a “race around a virtual world”. Starting in Dubai, every step your team takes leads you to a new location. There are 73 different locations on the 2013 Stepathlon course; some are well-known cities, whilst others are ‘off the beaten track”. Each location is annotated with beautiful imagery and interesting information including what to see, where to eat, what you can buy and where to walk when you get there.
