  • An explanation of why this is important. For example: This is important to me because ___.
  • If you propose a solution, an explanation of how that solution would help you and why that is important. For example: I think a ___ would be great because then I could see ___. This is important to me because I have to ___.

  • I just signed up for subscriptions so I could add my Hydrothon Club. Hydrothon is Swim, Kayak & Run but "Club" doesn't offer this for leaderboards or events only swim, bike run. Please tell me this is going to be possible in the near future  otherwise I will just go back to a FREE version of Strava

  • @Stephen S

    Until Strava respond to the many requests for this feature, try out my chrome browser extension...

  • Is there any way to see more of a club feed. The reason I joined a number of clubs is to get inspiration from others, to see routes that others are running in nearby mountains and to borrow ideas for the running routes.

    Well, that is good in theory, but in practice a club feed seems to be capped at 85 entries. Unless I repeatedly check the club feed multiple times per day, there is no way for me to see, for example, what everyone was running in the morning of the same day. In general, I might be able to see may be 1-3 interesting activities, but the rest are usually mundane runs that people do in their neighborhoods. 

    Why can't I see more than 85 recent activities in a club feed? What is the point of having a club feed at all if it is, at best, a small random snapshot into the club members daily activities? Can Strava please make this more useful?

    Ideally it would be great to have a filter, for example to see only races and long runs.

  • I'm using the club feature as a social motivation tool for work, and monthly and yearly leaderboards would be really great to award prizes in certain categories.

  • @Darren Almey - that's a shame, but I know what you mean.

    Maybe you and your team could give it a go on your personal machines?

    (Do people have PCs any more, or just smartphones?)

  • Darren Almey We've also had to put the walk as a run to get it on a leaderboard. The pace is a bit slower than the rest, but at least the person sees his contribution.

  • Soren, thank you for your update. However as outlined by other community members above, this is not the outcome we are looking for.

    Please can someone revisit and look to add WALKING as an activity within any Club? Yes there is running, cycling, swimming but NO WALKING.

    Sorry if I come across as shouting or a bent record, but you guys and girls are clever, if you can add running and cycling to a club leaderboard please add WALKING.

    Lots of people are walking, so please give them the recognition and value what they are doing with their colleagues and fellow athletes within a leaderboard.

    This seems an easy request but somehow you are either finding it hard to implement or you don’t want to do it. Either way please be honest with us all!

    Many thanks in advance.

  • My club is full of fake profiles, which are getting in the way of the real users, and also full of bots I suspect. Cmon Strava. These need to be identified and deleted from our club!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Not happy, thats why I stopped my Subscription. I will reinstate IF YOU SORT THIS OUT.....

  • I saw Steve Greenock post about spammers.  I work as a community manager - spammer/bots are very hard to prevent and usually the best methods are to add in requirements for full members - some number of activities, a linked physical tracking device (garmin, fitbit, etc), verified email, invite only to group or a paid/premium account.   Curious what suggestions would work for the Strava community to give them some more actionable feedback for the clubs feature.   I think premium only accounts is too high of a hurdle.   I believe one of the groups I am in uses the invite only method to keep the group 'real' but I'm not sure.  Maybe a group 'password' feature to gain access the first time for clubs?   Soren

  • Our club has been established for a while, but when I search based on my local area the club doesn't appear in the list of clubs.  Why is this?  What can I change so that our club appears to other people who maybe don't know the club name?

  • The following can be added to Leaderboard:

    • How many days people ran ? Currently, people might record their runs seperately as warm-up, interval, cool-down etc. This makes "Runs" column as 3 and it is misleading. If we can see it as days, it could be helpful.
    • This Month and This Year sections could be added to better track our club members performance

  • My club is not updating on the leaderboard.  It did not record any new mileage from yesterday morning.  Would really love to see where everyone stands because it helps push me and make decisions about my own mileage.

  • Roy Hughes currently a club leaderboard will be customized based on the club type: running, cycling, and triathlon clubs. Only activities that match a club’s sport type will be included in the club’s leaderboard. For clubs with their sport type set to ‘other,’ only rides, runs, and swims would be included in the leaderboard. 

    For more information on the current functionality of Clubs please see: https://support.strava.com/hc/en-us/articles/216918347-Clubs-on-Strava

  • Due to the great demand on Challenges, we are unable to accommodate requests for self-serve, club-based, or private Challenges at this time. As of now, Challenges are only run in conjunction with Strava and are done in partnership with endemic and global brands in running or cycling.
