No January 2019 Half Marathon Challenge?

There's no January 2019 Half Marathon Running Challenge available, but the other regular ones are open (10K, Distance, Climbing).

Can we have the HM please?

  • Give me more reasons to consider downgrading and don`t be surpriced if I do

  • I lost all hope that Strava will ever act upon the feedback provided by this community ("Matched rides" for cyclists was requested in 2015 and hasn't happened yet) but here's another vote and another runner asking Strava to please bring this challenge back!

  • @Trond:

    Exactly the same here - would be two Summit accounts exactly, a friend and i always gift each other the Summit membership each year... That will certainly be the end of this then...

  • Hey, Strava. I just completed my 28th consecutive month of 1/2 marathon (or longer) runs today. (Oh wait, make that 27. The one today, which was really hard by-the-way, apparently didn't count. There is no Half-Marathon Challenge for January, 2019. And we all know, if it's not "officially" recognized by Strava, it didn't happen.)

  • Come on Strava. Still no HM in Feb. You've managed to annoy a fairly large section of your user base for no good reason. If you want to offer additional challenges then great. But don't remove the foundations of your success. This is almost as dumb as Brexit! Don't bury your head in the sand.

  • Disappointed by the removal of the HM challenge, especially because the 5 and 10km are so similar... 

    Nike Run Club keeps my motivation up though...

  • Supporting the question.  BRING IT BACK!  I have completed the HM challenge for the last 38 months.  Total BS.  No reason to remove it.

  • Hey Strava, so what was your motivation behind removing that challenge type?

  • Let’s just face it. Strava, the big behemoth it has become, can safely ignore our questions and queries as we make an insignificant proportion of their customer base. They show a total disregard towards us and find us no more than a minor irritation that anything else.

    The plebs we get to interact with has been fed a canned message to push out and the person responsible for this brain fart sits somewhere in his ivory tower very proud of himself having contributed “to improving and expanding Strava Challenges”

    We will never get to hear the real reason for the removal of this feature.

  • All my sport mates are angry about Strava´s Half-Marathon cancelling - it was the most used Running Challenge of us - and all - like the Blog here - have the same opinion: "Strava is not really interested in their Clients." - Actually Strava has #1 Position. But we all know there comes the time of others. I feel sad about Strava´s behavior. It´s just only some clicks for them....

  • @Jaco Having worked for a company similar to Strava before I can confirm with 99% certainty that this is what's happening. The vocal users are considered a minority which can be ignored - the majority doesn't complain which must mean that they're happy.

    No amount of cancellations of Summit accounts will ever convince those in power of the opposite.

    And sadly they're right - I also considered moving to another platform but that would mean loosing all my activities and connections with other athletes. And those are more valuable to me than the half marathon challenge. :(

  • Not only should they reinstate the HM challenge, as it's a good motivator for a lot of people, taking it away doesn't seem in line with what strava stands for. But, I think a lot of people would love to see a FULL marathon challenge as well! I LOVE strava but I hate this decision.

  • It feels a bit like annoying users. It seems like such a small effort to just keep the challenge up?

  • Hi Strava Team... Running HM is my dream. Wanted to run HM this January but really disappointed when I was not able to find HM challenge. I thought it will be added in February but it was not added.

    Whenever I open Strava app, I used to check for HM challenge. Sometimes I open only to check that.

    Strava, i would like to record my first HM through HM chally. Please add HM challenge at least for March 2019. Thanks

  • Please bring back the half marathon badge. This is a real accomplishment for lots of people & we all love seeing this badge when we get back from the race.

  • What I find really irritating is Strava's refusal to engage with the community and explain why they've taken this unpopular decision (and no, "We've made some changes to the existing Strava Challenge experience" is not a meaningful response). Really poor attitude towards your subscriber base, Strava. 😠

  • Wow. This is ridiculous! I've been working my way up to a half marathon and finally plan to do it this weekend, and now I won't get a trophy?! Feel a bit robbed tbh :(

  • Awww - they need to be adding more challenges, not removing them.

    Why not shake it up - have the monthly HM available in the first 2 weeks of the month. Then the remainder is open to any sponsored challenges that come by.

    Or change it to a 15 mile challenge. Then allow the sponsored challenges to be HMs.

    There were so many ways to improve the situation - I draw so much motivation from these challenges but so much more could be done with them.

    PS Love the 5K challenge.

  • March now and it is still not back ... it's not like it costs Strava money to have that back ... but might turn some Summit ppl to looking into other options ...
