Values are n (%) or mean ± SD. Paired pre- and post- Stepathlon physical activity for Stepathlon participants is shown in participants who completed both pre- and post-event data collection. Information is shown for step count/day, exercising days/week, sitting duration in h/day, and weight. Comparison is made between pre- and post-event in each year of the study.
