What is Go Gold?

Go Gold is a physical activity challenge with a Summer Games theme, celebrating the 2024 Olympics in Paris.

How does it work?

Track steps with your favorite device and experience progress by exploring 7 distinct eras of Olympic competition. But you’re not limited to walking; activities like swimming, cycling, rowing, and many others automatically convert to steps so everyone can be a part of Go Gold.

What is the goal?

60 points for the 4-week program. Aim for 15 or more points each week.

  • 4000 – 6999 steps = 3 points (bronze)
  • 7000 – 9999 steps = 4 points (silver)
  • 10,000 + steps = 5 points (gold)

Note: You don’t have to wear a tracking device to record steps. Enter exercise minutes, then Go Gold converts your minutes to steps (100 + activities to choose from).

How do I get credit for my everyday movement if I’m not using a tracking device?

You can manually add 2000-4000 steps for incidental movement each day, based on how active you were:

  • 2000 steps: I mostly stayed at my workstation except for occasional breaks.
  • 3000 steps: I moved a moderate amount, getting away from my workstations for short walks several times.
  • 4000 steps: I moved a lot, with frequent short walks to perform my job.

Why Friends?

Friends may be the most important Go Gold feature. Having 1 or more join you improves your chance of success by 38% – and increases the fun by 100%. Visit the Friends page to send an invitation.

How does team participation work?

Team participation is optional. Scores are based on the team’s average points, plus Try it Tuesday challenges (1 bonus point/ team member each week). Each person’s individual contribution affects the team score.

You have until Friday, Aug 2nd to form a team of 4-20 members and add to the fun of Go Gold.

What are Try it Tuesdays?

If you’re on an official team, you’ll find an additional activity in your Tuesday morning email and on the Team page – an everyday task to complete before midnight CT to earn a bonus point toward your team score.

Is there a mobile app?
