How to upload Nike+ activities to Strava

At this time, there is no official sync service between Nike and Strava, however, there are a number of 3rd party solutions built by developers using the Strava API. Here are some sync services recommended by our community:

  • I've just found this Chrome extension and it works pretty well. I exported my latest runs from Nike+ and it brought over the HR and GPS info no problem:

  • i am having the same issue as Jerry....it is not taking my Nike Plus credentials even though they work fine on the Nike site. They must have found another way to block your hack......any ideas?

  • Hi @Steven Agar,
    That's true, I only include HR data on TCX (at the moment), because HR is not supported by the basic version of GPX.
    For info when you sync your data with Strava, I upload the TCX file to create the activity.

    @Michael Kennedy,@Steven Agar, Glad to know, that it works for you !

  • Hi Molson, it's highly unlikely that my tool would remove any data off your Nike+ account. It just does not have that kind of access. Heart rate not showing in Strava depends on which version you're using, but regardless there's room for improvement and that should be tackled soon as I find some time in the coming weeks. You can always reach me directly so we can look at the issue closer together.

  • Hi, to sync I use Nike+ -> SmashRun -> tapiriik.com or www.fitnesssyncer.com -> Strava. But today I can't fully sync my run from SmashRun to Strava using either tapiriik.com or www.fitnesssyncer.com. What I get is only Distance, duration, and Pace. And don't get synced GPS, map, heart rate, etc. It used to work in 2016, now it does not. What happened? How to sync?

  • Hi Sebastian,

    The issue has been fixed.
    For unknown reason, some user have activities without elevation data, which causes the sync issue.
    Should be fine now!

  • I believe there is a Nike API issue that gives intermittent issues with signing in to these 3rd party converters. About 3/4 of the time I try logging in with my Nike+ credentials in the converter page, I get a standard error about my username/password being incorrect. I know that is not the case. Using devtools, I see that a 500 Internal Server Error is being returned from the http://nike.vinz.xyz/nike-login/ request. I'm not sure if this is due to the way the apps are formatting the request, or if it is actually an API issue on Nike's side.

    Any one else run into this from time to time?

  • Hi Vincent, I was thrilled to hear of your tool ! And all the great feedback from other users. I am stuck at step #2. I was sure to enter same email and password for Nike+ but kept getting the error message. Sounds like a hopeless case.. any advice?

  • Hi @Paul D., thanks for following up. I was able to use your tool yesterday without a problem, however when I tried to use it today, the homepage would not load completely and I was not able to log-in to either nike or strava accounts for the sync.

  • @Vincent thanks very much for your nike.vinz.xyz tool. I had problems transferring a run on Saturday from Nike+ RunClub to Strava using the normally reliable RunGap App. The GPS map was transferred but no pace or start/finish times - weird. Anyway your tool worked great and all came across correctly. I note it does not transfer Heart Rate. Not too much of a problem as the Nike+ App transfers this to Apple Health anyway where I can look at recovery HR, VO2 Max etc.

    Unfortunately, despite the problems transferring from Nike+ it's still the best app after my testing on the Apple Watch 2 for runners. Nike+ tracks GPS way better than the Strava AW2 App and even the standard Activity App. I'd like some reasonably accurate pace times, distance, segments etc. and at the moment Nike+ is the way to go.

  • The latest Strava app evidently is not compatible with WatchOS4.3.1. I stupidly (accidentally) updated a week or so ago on my iPhone X; which sent update changes to the Strava watch app. I've tried deleting both watch app and iOS app and reinstalling/app permissions/etc to no avail. The watch app just quits when tapped to open. I am intentionally staying on iOS 11.3.1 however I learned I cannot go to a newer WatchOS because it means I'd have to go to iOS 12 or 13 which is not what I want to do at this time (it breaks application support for work apps). The most aggravating part is no ability to go to the previous version of Strava app. The whole removal of ipa file management for iTunes was a dick move of Apple, so I think the only thing I can do if I want to try to get the previous version of Strava back on my phone & watch is to jailbreak my phone and use App Admin tweak. I'm super-annoyed that everything was working *perfectly fine* with the previous Strava version and their unwieldy developers decided to increase the watchOS requirement effectively breaking my watch app. This detail was NOT in the release notes. Jerks!

  • Hey, @Paul D.

    I imported to Strava. The GPX didn't transfer HR data, but the TCX did! Great news, thanks for the heads up and all your efforts... the Nike Run Apple Watch app is by far the best option on the platform so far... thanks again

  • Just pushed a new version of the tool online, everything should be back to normal. Do let me know if you have any issue still.

  • Tiago, does the Runkeeper app support elevation tracking on its runs with the AW2?

  • Hey Vincent, looks like your site no longer works? It redirects me to the pro version then the page doesn't open. Anyway, I transferred my data through tapiriik and there was a HUGE difference between Nike+ and Strave.. My 10K runs are now 5.1 and the 6km runs appered 3km on Strava.. I don't know what's wrong

  • Hi Vincent, Thanks for the sync tool http://nike.vinz.xyz
    However this tool is wiping out my heart rate data from Nike+ account. Also it doesn't show heart rate in Strava!
    Looks like a bug.

  • Nike+'s API won't be "fixed" soon. It was purposefully locked down from most third parties, especially homegrown ones that simply helped get your data out and onto other sites like Strava and SmashRun.

    I have been able to successfully export my activities (on a per-activity basis) since the lockdown using a somewhat manual process that I hope I can make faster and open up to people, I'll post back here when it's ready for people to test.

  • Nike and other fitness trackers will have to resolve this by May 2018 as General Data Protection Regulation coming in to force in the EU. The data subjects (users of these apps) have the right to data portability of their personal data eg. GPS tracking and heart rate information.

  • Hey Alex, that is pretty odd. There are some miscalculations on occasions but the total distance should stay the same. There might have been some runs that did not get transferred, would that be possible? When the server is hit with high traffic it drops a few requests here and there..

    4 iOS users
    You can try this method (without any charge)

    >>>>Export tcx from RunGap to dropbox
    >>>>>Import tcx to strava

  • Adam, thank you! I followed those steps and I'm back on Strava now (as of October 19, 2016). I appreciate the help. Richard, if you need any help let us know.

  • For some reason, RunGap is having trouble connecting to my Nike+ account. It prompts me to log in but after putting in my credentials and pressing the button nothing happened, and I've tried that a dozen times (over the past week). None of the online sources work. I was trying to use the Nike+ -> Smashrun -> Tapiriik -> Strava; however, the Nike+ -> Smashrun part apparently needed RunGap to import Nike+ data, and as aforementioned, RunGap is having trouble logging in to Nike+. At this point, after countless hours of research and frustration, I have reason to believe that I have already exhausted all possibilities. I would like to be proven wrong if you have a working resource/pathway for Nike+ -> Strava.
    Anyways, Nike+ has a terrible and flawed user interface, I would never have used it if I knew that I would have to go through all this trouble to export their data to a more reliable and rational platform (Strava) and I am going to have to go with @Samuel Scheibel 's technique and skip directly to step 2.

  • None of these tools are working for me. Currently just synced with Smashrun and no I am trying to use tapiriik to sync to Strava. How long does tapiriik take? Roughly 90 runs, its just been spinning on synchronizing for awhile now, is this normal?

  • Desde el lunes no me funciona ningun sistema de exportacion de nike. Alguien ha conseguido alguno?.
    El smashrun junto con tapiriik solo me exporta a strava la distancia y duracion de la carrera, sin mapas ni los tiempos de los km.
    Por favor si alguien es capaz de exportar sus actividades NIKE que me lo diga. Mi correo es barrufet9@hotmail.com

    Gracias
