Inviting a Friend to your Activity

On the Strava from the Android app, you can invite a friend who was with you but didn't record their activity. You can invite friends regardless of whether they're already on Strava.

Inviting a Friend

Open the activity you would like to tag your friend in. From the activity details page, you can select the Add Friend button (highlighted below.) Select the application you would like to use to send your share invitation.

Receiving an Invitation

You will receive the invitation through whichever app your friend chose to use (email, text message, etc.) If you're new to Strava you'll be walked through creating a Strava account and the activity you're tagged in will show up on your new account (bottom left.) If you already have a Strava account, the invitation will open your Strava app where you can accept the invitation (bottom right.)

If you accept the invitation, your friend's activity will appear on your Strava profile and feed as if it was your own. You will be grouped with the friend who invited you, the activity will count towards any Challenges and Clubs you are apart of, and the activity will count towards your personal stats.

The activity you're tagged in will not count towards segment leaderboards, running estimated best efforts and won't include heart, power, or cadence data.

Can I invite my friend from the Strava website?

Not yet but this feature will be available on the web soon!

Will my privacy zone still be hidden on my friend's activity?

No, please be aware that the shared activity will not respect the privacy zone of the inviter.
