Moving your activity history from Runkeeper to Strava

To transfer your activities from Runkeeper to Strava you can export your activity history in bulk from Runkeeper and upload them to Strava in groups of 25 from our Upload page.

  1. In your Runkeeper account, hover over the Settings icon in the top right corner of any page (Gear image) and click on Account Settings.
  2. From the options on the left side of the page, click on Export Data.
  3. Select the date range for the Runkeeper activities you'd like to be exported. A zip file will then be generated after some time that includes your activity history for the dates selected. 
  4. Once the file is generated, click on the button to "Download Now".
  5. Unzip the file. 
  6. Log in to your account on Strava.
  7. Click Upload from the top right of any page and then "From File" and browse to select the file(s) from the unzipped file. NOTE: files can be bulk uploaded to Strava in groups of up to 25.
  8. Name your activities, and adjust the activity types as necessary.

  • I finally decided to use Tapiriik, and it has not worked. I logged into both Strava and Runkeeper at Tapiriik, and the message says "queuing", but nothing ever happens. I have tried syncing multiple times, from my tablet and PC. Nothing.

  • Thanks everyone, unfortunately we don't have any control over Tapiriik's functionality. But I do see that many people on twitter have been reporting the same issue. I hope there is a resolution soon.

  • I haven't had any trouble with tapiriik not exporting my runs from Runkeeper to Strava, but I do have a problem with the way Strava displays those runs. The moving time is way off, much faster than reality. For example:

    https://runkeeper.com/user/2613904178/activity/1033955699
    https://www.strava.com/activities/1135834136

    You may have to login to RunKeeper to view the activity. In this case, RK reports an average pace of 9:38/mile while Strava reports 8:50/mile. I've reported this to Strava support who blames it on "GPS errors" from Runkeeper and to Runkeeper's support who says "We read and collect data differently than other apps, and since we don't integrate with Strava–we have no idea how our data will appear over there". Strava support was able to fix the runs that displayed incorrectly in the past (they have not as of today on the example above), but it was a manual process.

  • Seriously? I have 1652 activities in Runkeeper, so I would need to do 67 imports. Ridiculous

  • The year is 2017. I can track a run via GPS on Apple Watch using Run Keeper - and there's NO WAY to transfer the data to Strava... Seriously? The Strava app on Apple Watch is a joke - it can't show current pace... I don't understand why these issues can't be fixed, especially for a premium member... Either fix the Strava app for Apple Watch, OR, let's find a way to connect Run Keeper to Strava.

  • I wanted to export al my Runkeeper activity from 6 years to Strava.
    To make this as easy as possible I tried this first with Tapiriik, but this always gave a clueless error. Tried in different browsers, waited for hours, ...
    So my next best option was bulk exporting everything from Runkeeper as explained by Travis at the top of this page and guess what... it worked perfectly! Just remember not to export more than 25 activities at a time.
    Some people above mentioned that the imported data in Strava is a lot different from the source data in RK, but I don't have this problem. Only very slight differences, for example somewhere: 5:04 min/km became 5:02 min/km, or a 10.96 km run becomes 10.97 km. I can live with this :)

    Lots of kudos to the Strava team! (y)

  • Barry McCardel - (I can't see a way to respond directly to your comments, so I have no idea if you will actually see this.)

    Thanks for writing the Python script; it's currently running on my computer.

    One comment: The print command was replaced in Python 3 with the print() function, so I had to modify the "print message" line to get the script to run.

  • Regarding the '[Failed to render "settings_content". See log for details.]' message. 

    When exporting data in RunKeeper, use the calendar icons when exporting data. 

    Tapiriik is also broken... it says queuing and does nothing.
