Create Group or Club Challenges

I would love to be able to set up challenges within groups for the folks that I ride with. Complete with the features that are on the normal Strava challenges such as leaderboards, ranking.

Ability to set up the challenge measurement such as mileage, time, suffer score etc.

I feel like this would really help drive people to ride even harder, especially those that might feel a little overwhelmed by some of the site wide challenges.

  • The addition of this feature, especially at this time, would drive yet more users to Strava and to Premium level.

    I've created pages for our running club and while we do create challenges, manually tracked outside of Stava, this is a natural feature to be added.

  • This function is the core of Fitbit etc, where people compete against each other. We can do it on a week by week basis on the club weekly leaderboards, surely if can't be hard to have those dates adjustable. Eg I would love to set a challenge about who had done the most distance/time etc over lockdown. Or calendar year, or over a year to our annual dinner. Or as others have said on a segment. Can do that for individuals as a challenge, but need to add each person individually. So what people are asking for is available in different ways, it just needs tidying into the club area!

  • Maybe if more users show the real demand for this feature, we can get the fine folks at Strava to step it up, like we all are doing in these difficult times. Competition is healthy and given most real world events are unable to go forward, custom challenges seems the logical stop gap; I’d be absolutely willing to pay premium membership if this was an option.

  • We need this! Many clubs are dependent on this app to stay in shape. I would pay for this feature if admins/owners were allowed to make challenges within the group and track more data .

  • Hi! Just adding my two cents here. Would love for gyms and running clubs etc to be able to do this instead of it only being for global corps to build up the local community. I know you have plenty of examples from the last 7 years since this was requested of why this would be a good idea but count my premium subscribing account on this list to hopefully tilt the scale of your product roadmap in this direction.

  • Hi, Just throwing my hat into the conversation that this is a feature I would really like! It promotes friendly competition within a group of friends. I would use it a lot.

  • Yes I completely agree. I did contact strava to set up a 5km challenge similar to the NYRR challenge to raise money for the NHS through the World 5k club-there's 35,000 members around the world. Everyone wanted virtual badges. Unfortunately the strava feedback was that we could choose a segment (not really relevant for the stay at home/social distancing running idea) and challenges was only available for notable charities and brands. We now have the Run for Heros challenge so at least there are badges people can race for. The World 5k idea still managed to raise almost £1700 from people around the world. It's a shame we couldn't get more coverage for the World Health Organisation as well.

  • How is this not built yet? I have a group of 20 friends who mostly use Nike Run Club as we do a monthly challenge. If you need to make money, charge £1 to create it unless you're a summit member.

  • This would be a great feature.  Especially now when all races and organized rides are being cancelled.  I'd love to set up a climbing challenge in our local trail system.

  • hi Strava! Is money or priority the issue here? If money this would be an opportunity for a payed plan for clubs? Or only for summit members?

    Do you already have a global members-panel to get qualitative member-insights besides all the quantitative insights from data? I would volunteer :)

    Why is this STILL not a thing?

  • Come on... Seriously there's no way for Strava to allow clubs to have their own challenges? It's a bit of basic dev work... Many of us are premium members and you're losing us to other services like Runkeeper or MapMyRun because you're charging more and more but not innovating anymore...

  • I fully support this feature! You are able to do Challenges on many other apps such as Garmin Connect for example. Please consider making this a feature for the future. I am sure that there will be many clubs facing financial difficulty at the moment and this could be a wonderful way to organise fundraisers in the place of usual/regular club races and events that are currently prohibited in most countries due to lockdown/social distancing regulations.

  • If there was ever a time for this functionality it is now with the movement towards virtual challenges. Provide it and ride the positive media it will create to new memberships....Come on!

  • Crispin If you want more paying subscribers listen to the cyclists and listen to the different groups of cyclists, i.e. road, mtb, gravel etc, and not just road cyclists. Strava Club challenges, segment challenges are the way for Strava to have the competitive advantage over other leading companies. Strava have let us the users, build your product with Segments, Strava clubs and us, the users inviting new users but then stop us by your of lack of development in certain areas. I like many others would be returning paying subscribers with the implementation of this release and I'm positive that Straa will receive many more paying subscribers when they see the advantages this would bring.

  • This thread has been running since 2013 and this isn't in play yet. I've just been added as a club admin and I expected to be able to set up a couple of challenges as so many people are engaging with fitness. Come on Strava.

  • How about charging a fee for clubs. I'd even pay yearly as a club to have this ability to run challenges within the club only. Even make it that only subscription paid members can participate in the club challenges. I bet you could make millions subscribe and also make millions from clubs paying by just adding this one feature.

  • Adding myself to the list of requesters for this feature, I operate 2 trail centres and would like to organize MTB Enduro, MTB Downhill and trail running events during this Coronavirus era to keep our base engaged and help the whole ecosystem of providers that has had relaying on these eventos as part of their regular customer base to make a living and we want to help them make at least some little money.

  • Endomondo has challenges that everyone can create, invite their friends, co-workers etc., but Endomondo is slow and unreliable. I guess Strava just doesn't want more people joining, potentially becoming premium users and getting more money. Although the latest update, which included stripping segments leaderboard, shows that Strava is fully into getting as much money as possible.

  • Another Club creator coming here making this request - especially since my club is for Rowing primarily.  There have been zero challenges related to rowing.  Why not allow us to create challenges in an activity not currently saved for global brands?

  • Yet another club creator requesting this feature. Have been a paid member for a long time and was hoping to organize a virtual charity event...you really don't make it easy (or possible for that matter). You guys really need to take another look into this...

  • As a charity, we would also like the ability to set up our own challenges. 

    Linked to that, not-for-profits don't currently have a way to sign up to Strava?

  • The company I work for would like to setup private challenges as well.  Charge a small fee and let it happen!

  • Totally agree, maybe to stop the amount of noise making Strava difficult to use then Club or Personal Challenges should only be visible to people already part of a Club or Follower.

    While I would love to be able to create a club challenge or compete with people I know there is a danger that my feed becomes overun by messages saying join this that or the other challenge or i get random people joining my challenge that i don't know or are way outside of the Club's ability level.

  • Trying to set up a virtual race to raise money in memory of my cousin. Seemed a good idea as many friends had trained for autumn events that have been cancelled.

    A custom challenge would’ve been ideal, alas not possible.

  • Shocked that this isn't already a part of Strava and that apparently even after 7 years of people asking there is no sign of it.

    This would be a great way for a charity to help raise funds if they were able to set up a club and run their own challenges. Charities are struggling for funding now more than ever.  The publicity from clubs and charities would bring new users.  Could even charge a flat fee for a challenge to be set up although it would be nice to get maybe 2 a year for free or have fees waived for non profit charities.  It's so disheartening to see that big charities with already huge income are able to set up challenges but smaller ones who really need the exposure and community led fundraising are unable to do so.

  • I built this in a day using the Strava API. I pulled club activity data for Runs and put the data in an analytics program where we could put people on teams, create our own competitions, leaderboards, etc. Our competition this month is to see how far you can run in 30 minutes. The team with the most distance wins. additionally, we put together a slack channel where we post leaderboard changes when they occur.

    I know this is not built inside of Strava, but it was easy to put together in a single day.

     

    Feel free to message me if you want a little help getting started.
