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?

  • I think that we have to consider that Strava is now in trouble. Not being able to introduce such function is a bad sign. I guess they have no more cash to pay developpoers. Their business model is probably not providing the payback expected... Perhaps the begining of the end...

  • Well, that would be bad news for runners, probably not so much for triathletes. Whether or not Strava is out of business, I definitely am going to leave. There is absolutely no indication for Strava showing up in this forum or they simply give $#¡±!. Three+ years is a bit much for this request, especially with no sign of life from Strava. Frequent updates of the app alone is apparently no sign of life.

    Strava, just tell us you won’t do anything about the Multisport implementation. A shame!

  • As a runner, cyclist, and tricyclist I've enjoyed Strava but have been frustrated by the lack of this function.  I'm ready to leave Strava.

  • I'm not ready to leave Strava as I love the positive community of fellow athletes and pushing myself to do better than I have previously on segments.  However, I like all of you am very frustrated at the lack of support for triathletes on Strava.  What Strava doesn't realize is that a lot of their cyclists and runners are actually triathletes grouped erroneously with the cyclists and runners.  We do these things, but we are triathletes!!!  

    There are some very basic and easy things triathletes are asking for:

    1. create triathlon activities in which the activity between the swim and the bike is T1 and between bike and run is T2 as well as grouping it all together. 

    2. Create a triathlon challenge in which you multiply the swim by 40x and the run by 4x to get a total score.  No one cares if it should be 3.8 or 4.2x to exact, we just want a triathlon challenge because we are sick of always being behind on the bike challenges or run challenges because we train for 3 sports not just one.

  • Really frustrating to see 5 activities for one triathlon event.  Starva guys are you following this tread or not?  if yes can you please post some ETA?

  • This is really stupid. I mean, I can't upload anything as a triathlon or adventure race and can't change it after the fact. It seems easy enough since you can create segments, so why can't we create a segment within an activity and change the sport while doing that? It really doesn't seem like that big of a change for them to do. Extremely frustrating and really disappointing that they haven't addressed this at all.

  • It's been over 3 years since the original post. There is still no way to manually enter a duathlon or triathlon result onto Strava. You can get a triathlon result of sorts from Garmin watch but it appears as 5 separate activities and the transitions just appear as 'activity' Be nice if we could have a proper facility to have swim bike run splits with or without T1 and T2 also. Thanks

  • I think it would also be great if there was Triathlon/duathlon training plans available with can be pre scheduled in your calendar/log. 

    I can see running and cycling plans, but there does not appear to be any multisport plans ?

  • Crawford, it would be nice, but strava doesn't give a sh!t about triathletes as all of our requests over the years are ignored. i love the strava community and strongly dislike strava the company

  • Strava is always ready to bombing you with some offers for the premium version but can't design something relevant for the Triathlon... ridiculous.

  • The more amazing thing is, we still appear to be thinking Strava gives a thing about this functionality and our years-old request. And in fact they're right: as long as we keep posting and complaining, we're still using Strava - with or without the multisport function. Credits to the Strava customer care, THIS is how you tie customers to your product!

  • pretty disappointing to come across this discussion. I've been using Strava for a while now and was considering the move to premium. However, after doing my first tri this weekend and spending the last 45 minutes trying to sort my watch info into something that resembles a triathlon, screw that.

  • I have an idea: add an ability to split an activity into multiple stages or legs, and an ability to "chain" multiple stages into a single event without merging completely.

    So, when you do a triathlon, just start your effort as "triathlon" and go into the water. When you are done with running, Strava could just auto (based on location & speed, or ask you to) split the activity into swim, ride, and run after submitting the results. The events would be analyzed differently because they are different sports, but still put under the same "triathlon" banner. The triathlete can choose to share single segments, or the whole race on their Strava/social profile.

    As a bonus, since at record time it is a single session, beacons would remain functional with the same tracking URL throughout all three stages this way. Useful if you have your cheer squad with you.

  • Please add:


    - a fonction to combine 3 activities with differents type of sports in the same "Triathlon" activitie 

    AND

    - a fonction to cut an activities in 3 types of sports.

    We are a lot waiting for that.


    Thanks

  • August 21 was the last official comment here - Explicitly, where is the roadmap, what are the triathlon plans?

    here are the basic functionalities required:

    1) Ability to input swims in yards/metres on the mobile app.
    2) Ability to combine 2 events as one thing (e.g. swim bike bricks or bike run bricks)
    3) Ability to have a multisport event (like Garmin, coff coff)  to actually track a triathlon/duathlon.

     

    Please respond as to where we are with the plans for triathletes.  

    Thanks.

  • I've cancelled my premium membership as Strava has been dragging its feet on this and ignored its customers for the past five years.

  • Well... we've been waiting YEARS for Triathlon, Duathlon, Mountain Bike, Trail Run, Obstacle Racing, etc... and it's been 8 MONTHS since the "official comment" that you're getting it sorted out in 2017. I suggest everyone go to iTunes app store and give an honest review. I gave Strava 2 stars because they don't listen to their customers at all. It's sad really.

  • Amazed. This hasn't been done yet. Strava is falling behind in terms of multi sport and running. Use Garmin connect as a guide for triathlon, duathlon, aquathlon recordings.
