New incentive announced for Visit Utah challenge

One week into the Visit Utah Walker Tracker Challenge, members of the Canadian travel trade are on their way across the state — virtually. In total there are 305 registered walkers in the individual challenge and 49 teams.

Leading the pack is Poor Unfortunate Soles (Jacky Darrell from Calgary who has already clocked up more than 200,000 steps while Walking Kim (Kim Rideout) from Trafalgar Canada is in second position with over 175 250 steps walked.

On the team front Team Anjuna continues to have a narrow lead of only 1,000 steps over Holy Walkamolies (Senior Discover Tours). Team Baxter Media is currently in 12th place.

But it’s not a competition, it’s a completion challenge so members have until Dec. 18 to walk across Utah by logging 390,000 steps by then.
