In-person race results added to sodisp.com to support hybrid events

March 3, 2021

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

Now events slowly start making plans to return to a form of in-person races, we have released an update to sodisp.com which enables events to combine best of both worlds with the same great user experience. Events with both in-person and at-home components can now host both parts on the sodisp platform to have an integrated result platform containing all their results.

Combining at-home challenges and in-person races

This new feature allows participants to easily choose which option they feel most comfortable with: an in-person event or the at-home challenge. This enables events a gradual transition path towards more in-person races while still allowing everyone who doesn’t (yet) feel safe at in-person events to still participate in the event using an at-home challenge.

Another key use case for this feature, is for events utilizing the power of challenges to start building their community leading up to race day. This allows organizers and sponsors to greatly increase their community engagement and use the social reach which is created using their challenge to increase their registration numbers for the in-person event.

Customizable results with liking and comments

Event organizers can now upload their in-person race results to the same event where they already host their virtual (or at-home) challenge. All tools available in our powerful self-service event management console are also at the disposal to upload and configure in-person event results. This includes sponsor logos and banners, custom column configurations and our social liking, commenting and sharing features.

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

Using our unique Garmin, Strava, Fitbit, 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.
