The Local Legend (LCL) achievement is awarded to the athlete who completes a given segment the most over a rolling 90-day period regardless of pace or speed. Local Legends is only available to athletes in the US to help us build a better product before rolling this out to the Strava community.
Where can I see Local Legend Segments?
At this time, only segments that meet certain engagement and popularity criteria are eligible for Local Legends. To explore eligible segments in your area, select Explore > Segments on the Strava mobile app. You will see a Local Legend icon next to eligible segments. Select the settings icon to enable the option to view Local Legend segments only.
How it Works
The segment details page on the Strava mobile app will display a Local Legend section listing the leading athlete. Strava subscribers can tap on this section to see how your efforts compare to the current LCL, overall efforts, and women’s efforts.
To earn the Local Legend achievement, you must match to the segment more times than any other athlete in the past 90 days.
- Efforts older than 90 days will be removed from the overall effort count.
- You can become the LCL regardless of your pace or speed recorded on the segment.
- Only activities visible to “Everyone” will count towards your efforts. Learn more about activity privacy controls here.
You will receive a Local Legends "Laurel" crown icon next to the segment on your activity page as well as on the segment details page. These achievements will be listed in your local legend tab on the mobile app. To view them, select Profile > Segments > Local Legends.
Why don’t I see Local Legends on a segment? Can it be added?
Currently, Local Legends is only available for select segments. There’s no way to add Local Legends to a segment that doesn’t already have it, depending on popularity and engagement segments may be added over time as we continue to improve this feature.
