Contest Rules

<< Back to 2024 CLA Wellness Walking Challenge


These rules apply to the 2024 Walk Challenge (“Contest”) conducted by the California Lawyers Association (“CLA”).

Any individual who enters, attempts to enter or in any way participates or attempts to participate in the Contest (each such individual is hereinafter referred to as an “Entrant”) agrees to be bound by the terms and conditions set forth in these Contest Rules (“Rules”), as well as by CLA’s interpretations of these Rules which are final and binding in all matters relating to the Contest.

  1. ELIGIBILITY TO ENTER. The Contest is open to all individuals who are 18 years of age or older on the date of Contest registration. CLA reserves the right to verify an Entrant’s age and may reasonably deem an Entrant ineligible based on the identification presented.
  2. HOW TO ENTER. Entrants must register for the Contest through the Big Team Challenge application (the “Application”). The Application may be accessed via the following website ( or via the Big Team Challenge mobile app. To register, Entrants must accurately complete all required fields, including providing a valid U.S. mailing address. When registering, individuals will select a Participation Tier (i.e., Standard, Medium, or High) to indicate their intended level of exertion.  Contest registration will open at 12:01 a.m. on May 27, 2024, and Entrants must register with the Application by 11:59 p.m. (Pacific) on June 19, 2024 (“Registration Deadline”) to participate in the Contest.
  3. ONCE ENTERED IN CONTEST.Any Entrant who completes and submits a valid registration via the Application by the Registration Deadline will be entitled to receive a digital certificate, valued at $0, reflecting their accomplishments at the conclusion of the Contest (“Participation Certificate”). The Participation Certificate will be emailed on or around August 13, 2024, to the email address that the Entrant provides. 
  4. TEAMS. Entrants may register with the Application as a team or individually. If an Entrant registers as an individual, the Entrant may be assigned to a team as determined by CLA. Teams are intended to be comprised of five (5) individuals.  Teams must have at least four (4) individuals, but not more than five (5) individuals (“Team”).
  5. THE CONTEST. The Contest will begin at 12:01 a.m. (Pacific) on June 17, 2024 (“Contest Launch”) and end at 11:59 p.m. (Pacific) on July 29, 2024 (“Contest End”). Between the Contest Launch and the Contest End, each Team will compete against all other Teams in a “virtual walking challenge” with a specific virtual route to follow as determined by CLA. In-person interaction among members of a Team is not required. The Application, which is a virtual activity tracker that digitally tracks step/distance information, will track the Team’s accomplishments. Teams may either sync their own fitness devices to the Application or manually enter step/distance information into the Application. Any Team member opting to manually enter information is encouraged to do so promptly, as winners will be determined based on time-sensitive reports obtained by CLA from the Application.
    1. Winning Team: There will be one (1) winning Team. The Team that walks the farthest during the contest period will win 1st place. To determine the winning Team, CLA will pull reports of the recorded accomplishments of each Team from the Application and will view the date and time, as recorded by the Application. The winning Teams will be determined by July 31, 2024 and CLA’s determination of the winning Teams will be final. Members of the winning Team will be announced on CLA’s website and on the Health and Wellness Facebook Page.
  7. TIES. There can be ties.
    1. In the unlikely event of a tie for 1st Place (i.e., a situation where the Application reports that two or more Teams walked the same distance), all tying Teams will be acknowledged by CLA.
  8. PRIZES. There are no prizes aside from CLA posting the 1st Place Team participants on the CLA website and on the Health and Wellness Facebook page.
  9. SUBSTITUTION OF PRIZE. CLA reserves the right to substitute a prize of comparable value for all contests.  Non-cash prizes are not redeemable for cash. 
  10. PRIZE RESTRICTIONS.  Specific restrictions regarding awarded prizes will be provided, if applicable, to the winners.
  11. TAXES.  Winners are responsible for paying all applicable local, county, state and federal taxes on prizes based on the estimated retail value of the prize, as set forth in the Rules.
  12. PUBLICITY: Except where prohibited, participation in the Contest constitutes the Entrant’s consent for CLA to use the Entrant’s first and last name, likeness, prize information, city and state of residence, and any comments or other feedback related to any prize or Contest experience, whether written or oral, for promotional purposes in any media without further consideration. 
  13. DISPUTES & GOVERNING LAW.  CLA shall be the sole arbiters in all matters relating to the Contest and in the interpretation of the Rules. CLA’s decision(s) are final.  All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of the Rules, or the rights and obligations of the entrant and CLA in connection with the Contest, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of California, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules.
  14. MISCELLANEOUS.  Entry into the Contest constitutes acknowledgement and agreement by Entrants to abide by these Rules.  Contest registrations that are determined to be fraudulent will be void, and the person submitting such registration or suspected of fraud or tampering with any contests may be barred from further participation in that contest and, in CLA’s sole discretion on a case-by-case basis, banned from any future participation in any CLA contests.
