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:

  • Thanks Srujan, it worked for me. It didn't fetch only a few workouts, that I manually uploaded to Starva afterwards.

  • Hi @Paul D,

    That worked a treat! I just did a 8.5km run with Nike+ and have just now transferred all the collected data, including heart rate. Great job! Thank you. Michael

  • As some people may have noticed, strava calculates distance differently to nike+. I run mostly on trails and strava calculates a lower distance for most of my runs after importing. For example, a 5.81 mile run on nike+ is 5.3 miles on strava. Seems like the curvier the trail the bigger the difference.

  • Hi,

    I am trying to transfer my runs to Strava but the links I am using aren't working? Everytime I try and log in with my credentials it says that they are wrong or not working 'oopsie daisy'.

    Does anybody have a solution? I have changed my password and that has not worked.

  • Hi Philip Kluss

    Unfortunately yes.
    But luckily yesterday I was able to skip the GARMIN step.

    You can try this method:
    Sync from nike+ to RunGap
    Export tcx from RunGap to dropbox
    Import tcx to strava

    It imports the correct data

  • "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."

    Issue still persists. New Issue: Unable to see the new run (April 09, 2017) listed.

  • For a measly $2 RunGap connected to Nike+ and is transferring 10 years worth of run data here to Strava. It even looks for duplicates! Amazing!!!

    Прошу написати вирішення питання щодо синхронізації мого міо

  • Is there a way to indicate a timeframe where you want to export activities from Nike+ to Strava? I only want to export my 2011-2012 runs as the later ones are in Strava already. I would like to avoid having duplicates... Thanks!

  • For anyone with the time, here is the method I've used:
    1. Contact Nike via their NRC email form 4 times. Get no response for 6 weeks. Skip to step 2.
    2. Call Nike on their NRC helpline. Got immediate support, a confirmation email and three days later they exported all 706 of my files to .tcx format
    3. Upload to Strava! The only drawback is distance and elevation are wrong for each one. You can correct distance by going into each run and selecting 'correct distance' under the distance, but elevation hasn't corrected yet. It just reads 0ft/m for most runs.
    ...and it takes a long time. But you can get your files and upload them for free.

  • @Paul D. does the Pro version nike.bullrox.net do a full sync of all NRC data?

    I'd previously loaded some NRC data into Strava using another method and now want to delete it all and resync using your method. I've got 600+ runs to sync, so a bit too many to do 1 by 1.

    Cheers.

  • I'm a beginner and my best run is locked away into Nike+ :(

    My second best is locked away into Google Fit :(

    Oh well, I'm sure I'll do better than both soon!

    Maybe :(

  • Did it auto do it or do you have to manually add each run?

  • I sync by running HealthFit on my iPhone. This enables me to select the workout and then export it directly into Strava. It doesn't pull the GPS route but it does pull the stats although the duration didn't reflect the auto-pause. I record my run using Apple Watch in case that changes anything.

  • Hi guys,

    "http://nike.vinz.xyz/" synchronize "Nike+ -> strava", but the total time is wrong (total 20' sync total 16', then the average pace it was 7'/km turn 6'/km in the strava).

    syncmytracks.com/ (Android) works ok, but can't export the Activity where there is cardio info. (export fail)

    Smashrun + Tapiriik (http://www.nikeplusexodus.com/) this method has potencial, but tapiriik.com says:
    "Strava: This activity contains unusual data that is most likely incorrect."

    Any better method?

    Thanks

  • HI Vincent. I tried your tool and it works very well. Thank you for your work. Only one question. In the list of runs from Nike+, I can see also the calories, but when imported in Strava there are no calories in the runs (only distance, time, and average). Do you know what's the problem? Thank you and regard. Nicolò

  • A couple of observations after a run today:
    - Nike's tracker is still performing better than Strava or Runkeeper: precision is better, and after a 5K run battery was still at 100%!
    - a run with a big pause in the middle is processed incorrectly by Strava (but not by Runkeeper or Smashrun): it shows only half a route if synced from SmashRun using Tapiriik or half the time (and incorrect speed as a result) if synced directly using nike.vinz.xyz.

    I hope Strava will finally look into the problem.

  • Vincent, although I stopped using Nike and removed the app a while ago, I appreciate your work and support.
    Thank you, and keep it up!

  • Vincent G., you're a miracle worker. I'm chalked off the heart rate data as collateral damage.
    Will be sure to mention you in the next Medium post I put up about this Nike+ issue. The app has truly gone to the dumps in terms of quality control.

  • Hello Vincent,
    thanks a lot for this tool that I use for few months, well thought and super practical. Still not working for a couple of days for me though, the blue bar at bottom is running endlessly...
    Cheers

  • Update: Now RunKeeper also supports the Apple Watch 2 standalone GPS. Easy to sync from RK to Strava using Tapiirik.
    Have fun with your runs. ;)

  • Hey Vincent - I'm trying to convert my runs from Nike+ and your website has me stalled at the upload (step 3 of 4). It's just circling and circling and unable to upload any runs. Any ideas? Thanks.

  • The issues with Nike exports has been going on since 2016 for me, I was using an app called SyncMyTracks on Android. I opened a case with Strava, which didn't really get anywhere. What's even stranger, was if I synced my run from Nike to Strava, it would give 4.93km instead of Nike's 5km. If I then exported the run from Strava to a file using the website, deleted the activity in Strava, then reimported that file back in to Strava, the distance would be back at 5km!

    The best information I got from them was this:

    The reason exporting/importing the file gave you different results is because when the file is originally imported, it used the device's GPS coordinates. Once it was re-uploaded it used the synthetic coordinates instead.

    When a file is using the GPS points, a handful of bad GPS points will lead to inaccuracy of distance. Whereas synthetic will just fill in those bad GPS points so no distance is lost. Unfortunately there isn't a way where your files will always be read as synthetic. I'm assuming this is why you might be getting a more accurate representation on the other apps because they're taking your synthetic data.
