Tribesports Annual review


Posted by Cags R under General on 30 December 2012 at 12:00 AM

2012 has been massive for Tribesports, not only did we complete thousands of Challenges (435,724 to be precise!), share tons of advice and log a ridiculous amount of exercise, we also released the iPhone and Android apps so you can have Tribesports in your pocket! Let's take a look at the annual review and see what we've all achieved in this year!

You are a force to be reckoned with

To start off, which Challenges have been the most active this year? The top 3 Challenges which had the most sharing, updates and advice sharing in 2012 were:

In third place we have 100 crunches a day for 2 weeks - this is one of the most popular Challenges on TS and also has had loads of chat and advice swapping. Whether it's tips on the 6 types of crunches or recommendations from those have completed on how they did it - this is an
awesome Challenge to start you off on the two-weekers!

Tribe-A-Lympic Running

In second place, the Tribe-A-Lympic Running Challenge - this was one of the three Tribe-A-Lympic Challenges which were a huge success throughout the Olympic games. The winning continent was the Americas who logged over 10,000km of running over the 6 week contest!

In first place, the most interactive Challenge of 2012 was the 5 person relay rematch15 teams of 5 people battled it out to be the first team to reach 1000km of running - the only catch was that only one team member could run at a time! This Challenge was an incredible display of team work, comaraderie and fun - congratulations go to Challenge creator Eddie W!

How far has Tribesports run, cycled, rowed, walked and swam in 2012?
