Values are mean ± SD or n (%). Baseline demographic characteristics of Stepathlon participants are shown. The distribution of Stepathlon participants is shown by sex, geographic region, and World Bank income category. Comparison is shown between Stepathlon participants who completed pre- and post-event data collection (completing Stepathlon participants) and those for whom only pre-event data collection occurred (noncompleting participants).
