Fife are taking on North Ayrshire in a race to 'Capture the Euro Flags'. Help us be the first to travel to the four group D stadiums and capture the England, Croatia, Czech Republic and Scotland flags. To do this, we are asking you to get out and get active, and let us know how many steps you've taken doing so!

We will be starting at Hampden on the 17th of May and competing for 4 weeks.

Each week we will release an event on the Monday and participants will be required to enter a weekly total no later than 12pm on the following Monday. The two authorities totals will then be compared and the team who have taken the most steps will win the corresponding flag for that week.

Compete for Fife and help capture the Euro flags!

At the beginning of each week we will send a submission form to you where you can enter scores in steps, miles or kilometres.

Ways to record your steps

Smart watch / smart phone
