Track, Calories and Stair Climbing Challenges added to sodisp

October 5, 2020

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

In our mission to provide the most complete Virtual Challenge Platform we have released three new challenge types at sodisp.com:

  • Track Challenge: A Track Challenge allows you to upload the gpx file of an actual course and each participant should run exactly that track in order to qualify. This allows you to host on-your-own events where participants can complete the race course at any time they like within the allowed period. Our matching algorithms ensure the participants follow the course but allow a slight deviation because of GPS measurements uncertainties. This is the most easy option to transition from an in-person event to a virtual challenge.
  • Total Calories: This new challenge type takes the (calculated) amount of calories of all qualifying activities. This is a great new fun challenge type and can be combined with our badges for all kindsof fun and engaging challenges. For manual entries we have implemented algorithms to estimate the amount of calories based on the activity type, speed/pace and duration.
  • Total Stairs: This combines the total number of climbed stairs of all qualifying activities. Virtual Stair Climbing is a new activity available now at sodisp. We also support the scenario where you have a stair climbing race where the goal is to climb X stairs as fast as possible.

These 3 new challenge types are all available for both individual and team races. Combined with the existing Time, Distance and Elevation challenges they offer event organizers a host of features to create unique and engaging virtual experiences.

Strava, Garmin and Fitbit auto-sync

Our unique Strava, Garmin and Fitbit integrations allow participants to have the best possible experience during the challenge. All activities are automatically validated and connected with the challenges they participate in.
