Triathlon Activity Type

There's a lot of triathletes who use strava and we can enter all our training data for swimming, biking and running.  But on race day, there is no way to effectively enter a triathlon!  How about adding that ability?

  • Yes I totally agree! I would also like to see an option for triathlons on here as I have also encountered this dilemma :)

  • Combined activities shoud be possible. Strava management should tell us why not, if the still will keep todays regime.

  • I agree - be great to be able to add multisport events such as duathlon and triathlon - I would become a premium member then

  • I am surprised this doesn't already exist.  There are a LOT of triathletes on Strava it would make sense to have this feature.

  • ...and in the "Training Log", a tri activity is not shown/included in the total time (just marked as a XT-activity with no time).
    This should be enhanced!

  • Hey everyone,

    We know some things for triathletes are lacking but it is on our radar and hopefully we will have some more features out soon.

  • Can't we add triathlons as an activity? It must be more popular than some obscure activities already on the site?

  • @Matt McKinzie, Strava Support: You seem to know that "some" (seriously, "some"?) features are missing for triathlons but your hope for some more features had its first anniversary recently. Would appreciate if you could share some reliable news with us.

  • Please add a list of triathlons for goals, rather than just marathons.

  • Definitely should be an activity type. Pretty annoying that it isn't already!

  • I find it more annoying that the folks from Strava haven't even reacted in almost one and a half years. Do they at all follow the discussions in this forum?!

  • Come on Strava... I'm a software developer and I know that sometimes is hard to attend all requests, adding new features can be difficult sometimes, etc.

    But in this case I think you should attend. I had a premium account for a while, but I cancelled it because of this.

    It doesn't make any sense to see 5 activities when uploading a triathlon activity (swim, T1, bike, T2 and run).

    I will upgrade my account to premium as soon you support triathlon, that's a promise! ;-)

  • Come on Strava. Seriously. 2 years ago this thread started and nothing. Yesterday, I had to once again have 5 individual activities load for 1 event. It doesnt make sense.

    Perhaps, you should speak to the folks a Garmin, their eco-system can handle "multi-sport" events.

    This is the one and only reason I do not have a premium account. Trust me, if you build it, they will come.

    Response please!

    crazy that Strava doesn't support this yet.  Even recognising a transition would be an improvement, and in my tri today Strava failed completely to show the swim.  It was synced from gadmin  connect and other sites such as Sportracks.mobi did a much better job

  • +1 on this topic. Being able to mark an activity as triathlon and manually add the splits using a tool similar to the crop tool seems feasible and would suffice for me.

  • Why haven't Strava sorted thus yet. It's been nearly 2.5 years since the original post!!

  • Garmin records multisport events and flags the even Swim/Transition/Run/Bike and several others. Sure would be nice if Strava imported those correctly.

  • I agree that this would be an excellent addition. Allowing for the seamless recording of data so that you can focus on racing rather than stopping and starting for each new phase of activity would be really welcome. 

    Strava - are there any plans to introduce this functionality? It would be great to have this trialled. For those of use whose interests span across running, cycling and swimming it is the perfect next step!

    This post was originally suggested in 2014, and I know that there was a similar follow up in 2015 but there still isn't any progress - could 2016 be the year?

  •  Come on Strava, just fix this issue, or at least share where you stand in the development phase. Garmin can do it, Training Peaks can do it...

  • And the funny thing is, Strava has on one of their sign-in pages a picture of what looks like two guys wearing neoprene suits and swimming caps while open water swimming.

    Come on Strava, this is a shame!

  • Strava is a dinosaur! How many months, years, decades for having this function within this app?
    That's ridiculous, all the others sport social networks have this function. A real shame!
