Running Races

Join one of Strava's running races and participate in race discussions, set a race goal, see course info, view other athlete's training, and compare your efforts on a race leaderboard. Once you upload your race, it will automatically be detected as the race you joined. You will then be able to confirm that this is your race activity and enter your official race time.

Find and Join a Race

  • Open the Explore tab on the Strava navigation bar.
  • Select Running Races.
  • Browse the page to find your race.
  • From the running races page, click the race you want to join.
  • If the race is in the future, you will be able to join by tapping the orange "I'm In" button



View and Filter the Weekly Training Feed

This feature allows you to sort and compare your weekly training against athletes with similar goals. To compare your training to other racers, navigate to the "Week by Week Training" tab (highlighted below.) Use the drop-down menus to filter the activities you want to see.


Participate in the Race Discussion:

Engage with other athletes and discuss race plans, training, and give support. Access the race discussion by tapping the "Race Discussion" tab (highlighted below)

View the Course Info:

Access the course info by tapping the "Course Info" button (highlighted below) or by scrolling down the page.

Link your Race Effort to the Strava Race page:

When you upload your race file, Strava will detect that activity as the race and will ask you to confirm and enter your official time if the race is on Strava. Once you've confirmed, you will see your Race results below your activity overview. At this point, your race time will also be listed on the Race page leaderboard and overview.






I don't see the race I'm looking for, can you add it?

We currently have an internal system in place to add races. This is reviewed several times a year but at this time we are not able to make any promises that we can add other races manually. Please check out our current race list and keep an eye out for new events as they are added. We are constantly working to improve the Strava Races feature and hope to be able to add more races in the future.

There's a problem with the course info, can you fix it? 

Select Something Wrong? Email us at the top of the page. You'll be able to send us an email and let us know what the problem is.
