Stair climb challenge

As part of the Scottish Government’s Fit in ’14 campaign, over 200 staff from NHS Tayside took part in a stair climbing challenge with the goal of climbing the height of Ben Nevis.

Organised by the Healthy Working Lives team, the challenge asked staff to record the number of stairs they climbed over a three month period, with 8810 steps marking the top of Ben Nevis. Participants aimed for various landmarks along the way including the Law Hill at 1141 steps, Scafell Pike in the Lake District at 6180 steps and Mount Snowdon, Wales’ highest peak, at 7120 steps.

Scotland’s first Physical Activity Awareness Week starts on Monday, 21 April.
