The Polar Skiing Challenge 2018 with Endomondo – we dare you to get on your skis!

December 27, 2017

We hope you’re well rested and nourished after the holidays because it’s time to slide off the couch and on to your skis!

To help you kick off an active new year, we’ll give you a gentle shove: we challenge you to hit the snowy tracks with us in The Polar Skiing Challenge 2018, starting January 1.

For this challenge, we’re joining forces with our buddies at Endomondo to celebrate the newly established connection between Polar Flow and Endomondo.

Get your skis on, rack up as many skiing kilometers as you can, track the kilometers you ski and you’ll have a chance to win some sweet prizes!

WHAT’s in it for me?

Well, besides the obvious benefits of getting your heart pumping with an effective cardio workout in the fresh outdoors, you’ll have a chance to win awesome prizes.

Here’s the catch: the more you ski, the greater chance you have to win.

  • If the challenge group’s combined total of skiing kilometers is 25k, we raffle one prize package.
  • If the group reaches a total of 50k, we’ll raffle 3 prizes.
  • If the group hits the ultimate goal of 100k, we’ll raffle 5 prizes.

AND WHAT ARE THE AWESOME PRIZES?

We’ll raffle 1-5 prize packages among all participants, depending on what’s the total score of skiing kilometers.

  • If the total score of skiing kilometers is more than 25k but less than 50k, we’ll raffle only Prize Package 1 (let’s aim higher, though)
  • If you as a group exceed the 50k limit, we’ll raffle Prize Packages 1, 2 and 3 (okay, but we know you can do better)
  • For hitting the ultimate goal of 100k, we’ll get to raffle all of these awesome prize packages (this is what we’re hoping for)

got it! WHEN IS THIS ALL GOING DOWN?

The official challenge period is January 1, 2018 – January 14, 2018, but you can sign up in advance as of today.

Yes, bring it on, I’m in! How do I sign up?

For Polar users, it’s relatively simple. If you haven’t already, create an Endomondo account, connect your Polar Flow account to Endomondo and join the challenge on the Endomondo challenge page.

HOW DO I ADD MY SKIING KILOMETRES TO THE CHALLENGE?

If you’ve enabled the connection between Polar Flow and Endomondo, you can track your workout with a Polar Flow compatible product that has GPS , sync it to Polar Flow and your workout stats will be automatically synced from there on to Endomondo.

WHAT IF MY POLAR DEVICE DOESN’t HAVE GPS?

You can download the free Polar Beat app for iOS or Android. For heart rate, you can use the Polar H10 heart rate sensor that connects to the app.

WHERE CAN I SEE THE STATS?

The kilometer stats will be updated continuously on the Endomondo challenge page. Also keep an eye out for the Polar Facebook page – we’ll be sharing a data update half-way through the challenge.

THE more the merrier (and the better chances you have to win)!

To increase your chances to win, share this post and challenge more people to participate – the more skiing kilometers you score together as a group, the more prizes we raffle!
