No January 2019 Half Marathon Challenge?

There's no January 2019 Half Marathon Running Challenge available, but the other regular ones are open (10K, Distance, Climbing).

Can we have the HM please?

    Hey Folks, 

    Thanks for adding your feedback! We've implemented the Half-Marathon Challenge again. Happy running.

  • Yes I so agree with Carol. Would really appreciate the restoration of the HM Monthly Challenges.

    10k and HM are the most popular Distance Events Internationally so to quit having a monthly HM Challenge seems insulting. It's like STRAVA has said my efforts are not worth recording or celebrating.

  • Monthly Half Marathon Challenge is definitely a must !

    Just ran my first Half Marathon since a long time ( totally unplanned, but was so motivated .. ) and now i can't get the satisfaction of the completed challenge ? Strava pleaaasese !

    I guess it was just an oversite and i hope the Strava team will add the challenge ASAP !

     

    PS: i just sent a support ticket... hope that this issue gets solved

  • Okay .. got a response that the removal was by purpose, which totally sucks of course

    Same vague outlook for some upcoming changes to the challenge system, but i fear the worst. Most probably more sponsored challenges, which in turn is nothing more  than a marketing instrument for companies which strava can make money of  ( and i bet you give consent to give away your data to the sponsor if you enter a sponsored challenge )

    Totally sucks !

  • Support the question. Why stop something that was popular and used by 10s of thousands of users?

  • I am really disappointed by this decision. I have managed to complete a steak of half marathon challenges for 22 months only to have it ended because Strava have decided to cut the challenge.

  • Please put the HM Challenge back in - it is so rewarding when you get it. Also, when, when when we will we see Private Training Notes?

    Strava seem to be taking away the functionality we want and not giving us the additional functionality we want. I am a Premium Member - as ever wondering why!?!

  • Not having a HM challenge is lame. You should at least explain why it's been restricted.

  • Sorry Jess

    This the exact same pre-canned message i got from my support request back over a week ago already

    It still doesn't make any sense . Removing the HM challenge is definitely a downgrade, and as summit user that's surely not a thing i want to experience. Why or who ever came up with the idea that removing such an essential thing as a HM is a good idea from the start ? As you can see many users aren't happy with that either

    Simply put: just reactivate the checkbox again to make the HM challenge reappear in the monthly challenges and everything is fine. All comes down to a single table in your database

    You can do fancy things with challenges and still keep the HM challenge, there is no reason to remove it ....

  • HM is the typically challenge we always clicked. And when I read all the comments then it feels like an arrogance to ignore us - the Strava Community.

    Strava created the Strava Community and now Strava is astonished that the community has an own opinion. Recognize your mistake and come down to earth, reinstall the HM. Sportsmen know how to recognize reality. Strava will win more when it sees their mistake. That´s sportsmen like! Strava, you are strong like a sportsman????

  • It doesn't seem right that cyclists get to have their monthly long distance challenges (Gran Fondo), but runners don't get their HM monthly challenges any more.

    Please bring these challenges back

  • The Strava Half Marathon Challenge may seem trivial and unimportant, but I find that this challenge is one that helps me stay motivated to knock out some longer runs during the month. I'm sure that I am not alone.

    I am excited to hear that new things are coming to Strava Challenges. However, while you are improving the Strava experience, don't discount the simple things that people like me have come to rely upon. Please add this challenge back to Strava. At least until you have rolled out something new...and hopefully better.
