Year of 1000km Offers Fitness Challenges for ANY Health-Related Activities

By: Year of 1000km
UTRECHT, Netherlands - Feb. 4, 2022 - PRLog -- We began our journey back in 2018 when the Year of 1000km Founder, Lee Haines, started a competition with a group of remote friends to run 1000km within the calendar year. It was a way to stay in touch with old friends, and even make a few new ones.  Google Sheets was their weapon of choice to record and visualize their progress.

A few months into the year, Lee suffered an injury and was no longer able to run.

A New Problem Emerged

Running was no longer an option for Lee, but the doctor said he could do other activities, such as cycling.

However, there was no way for him to continue taking part in the challenge because there was no way to directly compare his cycling activity with the running progress of his friends.

But he found a way, and Year of 1000km was born.

How Does Year of 1000km Solve the Problem?

Our web application allows users to record progress in ANY health-related activity and converts it into a single value which is then displayed on graphs.

This allows for an apples-to-apples comparison against others, regardless of what fitness (physical or mental) activities they are taking part in.

We have "Official Challenges" which anyone can join to compete against others in the global Year of 1000km community; they are:
  • Distance Challenge
  • Healthy Lifestyle Challenge
  • Healthy Mind Challenge

More details on each of these challenges can be found on the Year of 1000km website,

Users can also create and invite others to their own fitness challenges with custom goals, dates and activities.

Custom Challenges offer a fantastic opportunity for people to connect with friends or work colleagues, and for fitness trainers to keep their clients on track and create a fun, healthy environment to challenge each other.
