10,000 Calorie Mission Announced

10,000 Calorie Mission Announced

Zwift has released its “10,000 Calorie Mission” for the third year in a row, just in time to burn off some extra holiday pounds.

Starting the Mission

Sign up for the mission from the Zwift startup screen by clicking “Let’s do this” in the mission box (top-left).

Completing the Mission

This part is simple, but not easy: burn 10,000 cumulative calories on Zwift by January 31st. Here’s how many hours it will take you if you’re riding at various average wattages (runs also count!):

  • 100 watts: 29.06 hours
  • 200 watts: 14.53 hours
  • 300 watts: 9.69 hours

Learn more about what calories are, and how they are calculated from your watts >

Prize

What do you win? A stylish pair of pizza socks, of course!

I have a more difficult time eating/enjoying pizza as much since joining Zwift. Would be nifty to be able to switch the calorie metric to scoops of ice cream or beers to help my self-control there as well.

Thankfully I signed up BEFORE I started the NYD 100 mile ride!

So they announce this on January 2nd and our NYD rides don’t count towards this?

When I logged in to do my quarter century on New Years Day (after the update had completed) my screen was still showing the December mission, which I had completed weeks ago.

I did receive an email from Zwift announcing the January mission. Dated and received 3rd January …

I got mine on the 2nd but pretty sure it’s a full January Mission 1-31st

When I open Zwift, it’s not available for me. I’ve got nothing on the top left side of the screen.
Is it a known issue?

I found the answer to my issue: TDZ and 10 000 calories challenge are not visible on Android app but are visible on Windows app.

If you don’t see the mission as shown in Eric’s picture then you have to update Zwift or click on the arrows below the picture to scroll thru the different missions.

I’ve ridden every Day since 1 january, but Zwift does not count used calories (in The mission) ?

Yeah, same with me. It’s disregarded my Jan 1st and 2nd rides.

Does signing up for these monthly missions take precedence over the Climbing challenge, or can I go for my Tron bike and my snazzy socks at the same time?

Nearly 3000 cal missing on my counter compared to zwiftpower stats. Zwift bug? Anyone else having this Problem?

Yes mine stopped for about a week Zwift have me logged as only 6,337kcals that’s 3,285 short when I add up all my January rides I make it 9,622 with only one hour ride left and 4 days to complete. I contacted support they told me to let them know when I make 10,000 and they will unlock the socks as there’s no way I will make up the difference. The exact same thing happened to me on the Kona challenge stopping after 2 weeks then starting again in the last week.

Même si situation pour moi. Il manque environ 3000 cal. Je contacterai le support lorsque j’aurai atteint le 10 000 cal. Merci! 🙂

Est-ce que les données du 31-01-2020 comptent ou si la mission se termine cette date? Merci! 🙂
PS: j’ai aussi environ 2000 calories perdues avec Zwift qui ne se sont pas accumulées sur la quantité totale requise pour réussir la mission.. 🙁

It’s a full January mission, I believe my challenge counter started working again on the 25th, however it’s missing 3,289 kcals a sum of rides from the 2nd, 19th, 21st and 23rd. It’s now showing 6,765 instead of 1,025. Zwift Support hopefully can sort this as I can’t ride over 3,000 kcals in the next three days as I’m away working. Really want to eat my pizza socks this Friday night 🙂

10,025 not 1,025 let’s hope it can all be sorted for all zwifters who have had counter problems
