Get Set's Road to Rio
This project has now closed
Get Set is the official youth engagement programme of the British Olympic Association and the British Paralympic Association.
Originally created as the official London 2012 education programme, Get Set uses the Olympic and Paralympic Movements to help inspire young people aged 5—19 to get active and live the Olympic and Paralympic Values. Supported by Spirit of 2012, Get Set launched its Road to Rio in 2014 which included a mobile app enabling young people to work in teams and turn physical activity into kilometres, virtually travelling the 9,289 km to Rio. Get Set also launched the Values Awards: interactive, online courses encouraging young people to develop key life skills, character and resilience through exploring the Olympic and Paralympic Values.
