Turku on the move in September!

Come along everyone! Let's challenge ourselves and other Turku residents to move 100 times around Finland in September. The goal of Turku on the move is to accumulate 394 000 kilometres altogether. All forms of exercise count: walking, cleaning, cycling to work, swimming or playing outside with your kids.

Exercise peformances are recorded via a calculator that also shows how our shared journey is getting on. By participating you can enter a prize draw and win stimulating prizes. The main prize is a one year gift card to Motivus Fitness Centres (value approx. 800 euros).

Report your kilometres via an exercise calculator! You can also set up a team in your work community or hobby group and pass the exercise challenge on!

You can also record your kilometres in a participation card that is available at Turku-piste, the city's libraries, Impivaara Swimming Centre and the Public Transport Service Office.

Exercise performances as kilometres:

  • 20 min of light exercise = 1 km
  • 10 min of brisk exercise = 1.5 km
  • 10 min of heavy exercise = 2 km

Turku on the move and Turku tekee hyvää ('Turku does good') are part of the Dreams into Motion campaign of Finland's centenary celebration. The goal is to to promote exercise, happiness and wellbeing amongst people living Finland - and to set dreams into motion.
