Create Custom Challenges

 Can you give an update on where you are at with allowing admins/owners of clubs to create custom challenges for that club?

  • lol... I take that as a no (no, they won't give an update)! 

    It's a shame Philip, but Strava make money from companies who create these challenges. Which is fine, but if a small club would like to do a small scale club challenge, the option doesn't appear to be there (unless Im missing something)? 

    I guess the only way you could create some kind of challenge, without it being a challenge, is to create a group and the challenge is set over a certain time frame. Once the time has passed, you are crowned the winner (although you wouldn't get an icon in your trophy case) and that would defeat the object. 

    Strava... are you able to comment?

  • Guess Strava has been "planning" it for a few years. I would be using the feature right now for our winter challenges.

  • would also love to have the ability to create a monthly challenge for the Club i just created. i dont understand why this is such an issue for Strava. i have separate apps that allow me to create individual challenges for myself, but i would rather have a group challenge for the group i am currently training with. right now, i can create a running challenge or biking challenge individually in my other apps, but we, as a group are doing a monthly Ironman challenge. we record our activities here (i record in 2 other places since i can create challenges there) but we would like to be able to track "progress" towards all 3 activities for the challenge for each person.

  • Yes STRAVA .... PLEASE do this.  or if there are any developers out there reading this ... Please do this. Using Strava groups would be the ideal way.  I see that someone has created a "Segment Challenge " companion app.  Can we get one that allows more flexibility to create a variety of challenges.  For example we want to create a challenge for our group members to do a Century per month for 12 months.  Or perhaps just 12 Centuries over the course of 12 months whereby you could catch up by doing multiple centuries in a single month.  

    Can we at least get someone from Strava to respond to this post with an official answer ????

  • YES! I want to create a group challenge others can join and all can see each others' progress on a leaderboard.

  • Where are you Strava support?
    A simple “we won’t do that at least in the next couple of years” would help.

  • It's a shame, but Strava revoked access to their API for Segment Challenge. Only Strava can create challenges... :(

  • This would be wonderful. Are there other apps that might do this besides Strava?

  • I think they are piloting this .... Seems like some clubs are already able to create challenges like the "Strava Japan Club", a Red Bull club and CCC Team ......

  • Strava, could you please update us regarding custom club challenges?  I'm with the myriad other club leaders who see deep value here.

  • Seconding the above, let's get a response on this, please.

    Clearly you have a whole host of users who love the app and are looking to engage it more fully - sounds like a good problem to escalate and solve!

  • I think it is time to export my rides and go to Under Armour. Sadly this means that the organisers of the Cape Town Cycle Tour 2020 will need to be informed that we no longer recognise Strava results as valid. I mean, how can the second tandem rider beat the first? Sorry Strava, but you have failed to respond to this thread for more than a year now. Bye bye!

  • It really is silly Strava doesn't do this.  The number of people using their app would double or triple by adding this feature. Even if they charged for it, make the prices something feasible small clubs could do: $50 for a summer running challenge.

  • Does strava support ever read these threads!? Doesn't appear so. I've seen numerous discussions about ( what would be) amazing features that lots of people seem to want, but strave seems to ignore.

  • bummer !! the only reason I just setup a company club was to create a challenge and that now seem not possible....

  • Kim, segmentchallenges.com was an alternative, but Strava has blocked its access to integration APIs... It seems that only $TRAVA can create cu$tom challenge$ at thi$ moment... I really don't know why!!!! $$$$$$$$$$$$   :-)

  • Hey All,

    I'm helping with a college software engineering course this semester. 

    One of the team projects will be a cloud application for creating private and group challenges.  It won't be limited to sports, but I'm expecting a Strava integration might be high up there.  It's really a proof-of-concept for challenges and habit formation.

    Any thoughts, desires or suggestions? Has this been taken care of already on Strava?

  • In my experience with Strava in general, their support sucks, at least if you're not a paying subscriber, which I have zero interest in doing; would someone who does pay comment on that? I pointed out to them repeatedly, providing examples, that the way this site handles ride data that contains laps/intervals totally mangles the data, putting the wrong data with the wrong laps, miscounting laps, and so on, so their 'lap' data as displayed is meaningless, and they gave me the email equivalent of a dumb look and a shrug and nothing ever got fixed. So it doesn't at all surprise me that they wouldn't offer any sort of feature where users can create challenges for a group within the mechanism of the website. The only reason I'm even here using this is because most of my teammates use it, and I like to show that what I'm doing day to day. Otherwise it's kind of useless to me because of how hinky and buggy it is overall.

  • Hi Strava Support.

    I'm a paying subscriber to your service. Please can you respond on this thread and indicate whether you have anything on plan to allow us to create custom challenges within our own clubs?

    Thanks

  • Looks like the support of this company does not care about their customers.

  • Our local NICA club would really like to have this feature available to our club.  I do not understand why Strava has not provided any feedback on this question.

  • I have been a paying subscriber to Strava but have not continued this year due to their lack of response to this issue. Will not subscribe again until I see some response.
