Start a walking group

Starting a walking group in your area is fun and easy. You only need one other walker to start a group so if you are interested in creating your own group, please contact Council's Community Development Programming Officer on 3412 3412. You can also become a virtual walker by visiting the website.

Moving is Improving (Slacks Creek Corridor)

Compete with other likeminded people in the same area or around the world. It doesn't matter if you are an Olympic athlete or just want to improve your wellbeing. This is the place for you, a community of people with similar goals. You can walk, jog, run, cycle, push a pram or walk the dog. As long as you have a lifestyle tag and are registered you are good to go.

Your results can be seen on the website or can be sent directly to your smartphone. You can even share with friends. Check stats and see how others compare. Get rewards and offers from participating businesses.

To request your free Lifestyle tag, email Council@logan.qld.gov.au or phone (07) 3412 3412.

When it arrives, go to the Moving Is Improving website and register your tag. Fit it to your joggers or walking shoes and you are good to go.

Your time between each timing point is recorded and instantly available to you through the website or to your smartphone. The split times and distances you have travelled are automatically recorded and maintained in an exercise diary. Use the website to see how you compare with others here and at other locations around the world.
