Badges & Virtual Events

Regional admins from trail associations can create badges that users can unlock through meeting various criteria on their rides.

This is the only events related feature that is not free. Unless you are a non-profit trail association with a large contest. Contact Trailforks to inquire about running a contest.

Contests can be linked to a collection of badges and participation tracked.

Contests are promoted on the homepage of the Trailforks website and in the mobile app under the contests menu. Contests can also pay to have a geo-targeted fullpage popup in the app promoting their contest.
