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.

  • When I try this I get the following error:

    Server Error. This can be caused by file names with odd characters like % or foreign characters.

  • Thanks Konrad, this seems to be working wonderfully. And DCRainmaker has reviewed/approved it, so it meets the 'is it safe' test for me.

    I had my gpx files ready, and a osx programmer nerd at work was lined up to help me with the python script, but tapiriik just seems so much simpler.

  • Is this still the case? 25 at a time? I have 1,000 Runkeeper activities and can't imagine what it's going to really take to sync them all over. I like that Serge's mentioned a 3rd party Open Source project mentioned above, but am Leary about uploading my movements from the last "many" years to a service that I really don't know well.... even after reviewing the privacy policy. Strava folks -- can you help?

  • Don't worry so much about those fields - you can put in "https://testgarbage.com" for website and "testgarbage.com" for domain

  • Hi Barry, i'd like to take a crack at your solution but fail at step one. What are the pre reqs for anyone (ie: me) creating an application, what would i put for 'website' and 'authorisation callback domain' ?

  • 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.
