  • Agree to this one. Surely not a complicated update to achieve either, just needs to be done. It annoys me that my triathlon shows up as two races (bike/run) in red and a swim in blue. Although perhaps that's my OCD side coming through.

  • This frustrates the heck out of me also.  I don't understand what it hasn't happened yet.

  • Agreed, please make it possible to mark a Swim as a Race

  • Seriously Strava – I don't get it. What is your problem with adding this one more dropdown to swimming activities? We'd like to tag swims as races. Heck, let every type of activity be a race.

  • Been waiting for this for awhile. Would be really helpful to better track triathlon race data in the training log, as well as for searching and just general global consistency.

  • do we have any explanation why such an easily understandable demand is not done?

    If strava wants to be there for swimmers and triathletes what is the point to allow marking a run or bike as "race" but not a swim?

  • I think they're just ignoring the fact that any sport could have a race... No clue why this is restricted to only biking and running... even a triathlon has a swimming component that's a race!

    c'mon Strava... you can take the time to become Facebook and make us want to use the platform less; but you can't take the time to ensure you're accurately capturing the sports and activities you want uploaded?

  • SO annoying.. and SO simple to implement! All the code is already there for bike and run!

  • Agree!!! It is weird completing a triathlon and only being able to label two of the three events as a race.

  • Sorry Strava I will not renew my premium account until swimming will have some basic feature... Cannot even filter my training log for swimming..There are too many feature missing for this beautiful sport.. For example they could record your best effort for 1000, 800, 100 meters/yards.. The could differentiate indoor/outdor swim... But nothing... Cannot even see a pace analysis or generate a swim heat map.. seems this sport is just forgotten...

  • Same here – revoked my premium subscription. No swim races, running power, and other no-brainers. Switching to training peaks instead.

  • Same here - revoked my premium membership some time ago. Little benefit, Stalling feature development. Swim race sounds like T-Shirt size S story for the dev teams - no idea why this is not happening ?!

  • I'm surprised this is still unaddressed.  Why can't we mark swims as races?

  • Because in the eyes of Strava; Triathlons and Swims don't count as 'race worthy' activities...

  • Hope this feature is released soon, it is really frustrating not being able to mark my swim races. All my buddies think the same.

  • Baffling how easy it would be to adjust the code to add the race feature to the swim activity. It’s 2019 and still not software update to include this. Anyone from the Strava team able to update this, maybe even an intern?

  • Agree with all previous comments- what is really odd though is that you can tag a swim as a commute!!!

  • Agree with previous comments.

    I like on my  training log (and ideally also on My Profile) to see my races.
    Race = event where I got a medal. Triathlon is a race; Chip timed O/W swim with a medal = race.

    Why can't I tag a swim as a race? Be real easy to implement!

  • Another reason why I won’t pay for premium. What chance of integrating something like running power when they can’t even grab the low hanging fruit.
    Original, upvoted request was 3 years ago!..

  • My goodness. How hard can this feature request be? I will for sure not buy premium features while this is not implemented. Ridiculous that from 3 triathlon activities I can tag 2 as race and swim not...

  • Please,

    Can you solve the problem to tag SWIM in a RACE Category?

    Thanks!

  • Even more irritating. Last week, during a hard part of a swimrun, I used my pullbuoy as a plank for some time and, when I set the swiming activity as run / race, I have the good timing but, when I use "Swim", I only have a lower "Moving time". It seems as I was not moving the arms that I was not moving enough to be detected (and my total time is not good).

    In runing, when you tag an activity "Race" it stops trying to calculate "moving time" and use the real time, it should do the same for swiming.

  • So now you moved much of Strava behind paywall you have no excuse for not implementing such a basic thing as races for all disciplines that can have them -- including swimming.
