Sodisp is the most complete and engaging platform to host hybrid events and challenges. The only platform with Strava, Garmin, and Polar auto-sync. Start your hybrid event or challenge today on sodisp.com!

Now events are slowly getting back to normal, we are releasing two new features to allow events to accept more registrations and offer more engaging goals to their communities. These options allow events to open new revenue streams, generate new sponsor opportunities, and become relevant 365 days per year.

Course detection and geo-fencing

Our advanced algorithms detect if a participant followed a predefined route to ensure only participants who correctly follow the race course may qualify. Additionally, wealsosupport geo-fences to ensure activities have been done insidea predefined geographical area, such as a state park.This allows participants to follow any track, as long as they stay within the allowed region.

As race director you are in full control of which activities may qualify. Using our advanced self-service dashboards, you can view all data or make changes when necessary.

Perfect for hybrid events and year-round challenges

Both new features allow events to accept more registrations in a responsible manner in accordance with local COVID regulations. Participants can complete their activity on any allowed date using their own fitness tracker.

Results are collected on the social leaderboards where participants can not only upload their selfies but also receive likes and comments from their friends and family.

Auto-sync with all major fitness brands for the best possible experience

Using our unique Garmin, Strava, Fitbit, MapMyRun, Polar, Suunto, and COROS integrations, owners of these devices can automatically sync their activities the moment they save an activity on their app/watch! We will take their activity and connect it with the virtual challenges they participate in.

We also support manual entry and the upload of gpx files to allow everyone to join the challenge. We automatically validate each activity based on the selected activity type to keep leaderboards clean.
