Suffolk, Va., is way ahead of Suffolk, England, in a friendly challenge between citizens in the sister cities to walk the most number of steps between Sept. 8 and Oct. 5.

According to Jett Johnson of Suffolk Partnership for a Health Community, more than 500 people registered here for the Million Steps Challenge had logged a combined 5,542,012 steps as of Friday.

That’s over 2 million more than Suffolk, England’s, 3,3310,500 steps, as stated on the website of Healthy Ambitions, the British group that has challenged us to the walk-off.
