What do a jogging woman, a guitar and Super Mario have in common? All were submitted as entries (and selected as our winners) in the first-ever MapMyFitness Route Art contest.
The challenge: There is an art to mapping out the perfect workout. So we challenged our users to switch gears and make maps that were actually art. Using the Create Route feature on our website, fitness goers turned their city into a giant Etch-A-Sketch. The rules were simple: Create a route on the MapMyFitness website, save the route (and confirm it’s public), and copy the link to our Facebook entry page. We even let users enter as many times as they wanted – sketch, sweat and repeat.
The results: Hundreds of users submitted routes via our Facebook page, along with inspiring captions. We received everything from words of encouragement, to favorite sports teams, famous buildings and just about everything in between. The winners were selected via our panel of judges and criteria were based on three categories: Most Creative, Most Local and Best Artist. Each winner received a free year of our MVP service plus a $150 gift card to the MapMyFitness Marketplace. We present to you, the winners.
Our goal as a company is to empower our users to only live healthy and fit lives, but to have fun in the process. Thanks to everyone for making this contest a huge success and please stay tuned for another contest (in the very near future). You can also view more of our favorite entires here.
