Sustainability Initiatives

Align challenges with university sustainability goals, such as promoting biking to campus, to engage the academic community in environmental stewardship.

Participants typically track their own sport activities progress using a fitness tracker or app, and results are submitted online. Examples include virtual 5Ks, virtual cycling races, and virtual running challenges.

Hybrid Sport Races

These are races that combine in-person and virtual elements. For example, a race may have a limited number of in-person participants who start at the same location, with virtual participants joining in from around the world. Participants' progress is tracked using an app or fitness tracker, and results are compiled online.

What our clients say

DistantRace.com is a great project, and I really hope that this word will sound out in the world. This is the good way to organise competitions at any time and extend the cycling season, so I hope that cycling competitions will be organised during the winter as well.

I tried the competition organised at the DistantRace.com system and I can't wait for the next one. The format of the competition was great as well as competition track and technical solutions.

Distantrace.com is a platform where our company quickly and easily set up a challenge for employees. We liked that you could choose from different challenge types. And best of all, everything is automated - no screenshots to send, no need to send the results by yourself. Just do the sport and see how your colleagues are doing in the challenge table.

A good way to motivate employees to move out. And as an organiser, I barely had to do anything - the platform did it all. I recommend choosing a different challenge each month to make it more interesting for employees.
