Goals on Strava

About Strava Goals

Premium athletes can set weekly, yearly, segment, and power goals on Strava. Goals are currently limited to cycling, running, and swimming sport types. Manually uploaded runs and rides, as well as activities marked as Stationary will also count towards your goals. Free users will not have goal setting capabilities, but will be able to see accumulated distance totals by sport on their profile page.
