Beat the Bay State Final Results

Beat the Bay State Final Results

 Thank you to all the participants in our first ever “Beat the Bay State” Team Challenge during the month of November. Over 450 people took part across 31 teams! The challenge was a way for people of all ages to participate in outdoor physical activity of walking and running over the 30 days of the competition. It also made it possible for teams to stay socially connected and have something fun and different to talk about when confronted with another Zoom meeting! We’d love your feedback: how’d it go, and what can we do to make it even better next year? Shoot Brendan an email or tweet us @WalkBoston.

Congrats and thank you to everyone who participated. Below we’ve highlighted those teams that had the most participants, raised the most money, and finished the Beat the Bay State Challenge first!
