Last month Trilix employees laced up their walking (and running) shoes for the first Trilix Fitmittee Challenge. Created as a fun way to promote exercise and healthy activity, the competition challenged competitors to see who could run or walk the most miles over the month of August. In total, 16 warriors battled it out for the right to be crowned champion.
To accurately measure miles covered, each employee downloaded the Map My Run Challenge app, which uses GPS to record running routes, speed and times. The app also notifies participants when their competitors log miles, making for some highly entertaining exercise battles over the course of the month. When the dust cleared and the challenge came to an end, Copywriter Tucker Vasey emerged as our winner, running and walking 300.02 miles in just 31 days!
The top four finishers are as follows:
1st Place — Tucker Vasey with 300.02 miles ($100 winner)
2nd Place — Mike Kang with 214.02 miles ($75 winner)
3rd Place — Abe Goldstien with 148.42 miles ($50 winner)
4th Place — Jenna Marzen with 95.7 miles ($35 winner)
In total, our 16 competitors covered 1,207.72 miles — the approximate mileage between Des Moines and New York City! Congratulations to all our participants on going the distance!
