  • Please allow clubs to select the activities that count towards their leaderboard, not every club in the world is for running and cycling

  • Why can't walking be counted in clubs? I am trying to set a team group for walking!

  • Yes, please respond Strava. Surely it would not be that difficult for you to add walking to the sport options in clubs? This is particularly important as we head into another lockdown. We need people to stay active, but the majority will want or need to do this through walking rather than running or cycling.

  • HI Strava,

    How about some feedback, what is so difficult about allowing a club to choose the activity which counts towards it's leader board?

  • How can I create a custom challenge for my club I created? I looked all over the support forum and couldn't find anything on creating custom challenges at all, like other fitness apps provide. This would be an important feature because it would enhance user experience, increase club participation and provide better connectedness and motivation opportunites.

  • Hi, I am trying to set up a lockdown winter wallking challenge for my Healthwalkers in Brighton & Hove.  I've made a club for this, which seems like the right option, but it hasn't let me choose walking as the chosen sport, and although I've selected 'other' instead, a walk I've just done has not appeared on the leaderboard.  Anyone get any idea how I can get walks to count in the leaderboard for our club?  This is the club page https://www.strava.com/clubs/771704

  • Can you please display total distance, along with total time, on club leaderboards for triathlete and other clubs. The info is already being tracked, so it's just a case of displaying and auto summing it. I have noticed on pervious community boards that others have asked for this, especially where a multisport club is taking on a distance challenge either for competitive or charitable fundraising purposes.

    • I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE all sports in the multisports clubs. IT WILL ALLOW ME TO motivate my students to exercise in addition to running, swimming or cycling. THE REASON FOR THAT IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE some of my students do other activities but are not listed in the leaderboard. AN EXAMPLE OF WHEN I NEEDED THAT WAS every single week when the runners, cyclers and swimmers are getting very competitive and motivated while the others are not.

  • How about a yearly leader board also the same as you have for the weekly totals but a yearly one too

  • I was requested to review this forum to see if there are ways that clubs can showcase a cumulative total for all activities and I see others are voicing same opinions.

    Strava has been around for 11 years now. I’m a subscriber and paying into this service. I’m currently putting on a fundraiser for mental health where I’m asking community members to engage in any activity that Strava supports and wish to push the community to obtain a certain cumulative total. The reason for this as I don’t want to be just exclusive to cycling, running or swimming, I want to be inclusive to those who may have disabilities, don’t have financial resources for a bike or membership to swim. So I’d like to include simple activities such as hiking or walking.

    However Strava is currently only those for the elitists and does not wish to be inclusive to others to showcase a cumulative total for all events. I can say elitists as I’ve read the posts above, seen public requests when I google on how to combat this issue; and all I get is the same response of cumulative total is only for running, cycling and swimming.

    Is this in development as the numerous requests shown above make it clear there is a NEED for it. Especially during this unprecedented COVID times people mental health are being pushed to the limit. They need something to engage in. They need to feel like a community which is what I’m trying to do, along with many others above and our voices are not being heard. Strava gathers this information already for all activity platforms that it offers; XC skiing, walking, hiking, etc. Is this software being developed? Do you have a launch date? Or are you simply going to continuing ignoring us? Why isn’t Strava being inclusive to those with disabilities and can only walk? You asked to describe why this is important to me above - it’s because I suffer from mental health and my release is to be active. I’m sure there are many others who feel the same way so my goal is to bring us together. Currently your not in support of providing cumulative totals and I don’t understand why when so many are calling for it.

    Lastly, saying nothing to your community and being quiet about the issue, is the same as saying NO.

  • Can you please make the “other” club type include all sports? Walks, skis, every sport type. We would like to have an inclusive club where all minutes are counted towards the leaderboard, not just run cycle and swim.

  • Is it at all possible to create different teams inside of a club?

    I am creating a club, with the goal for each member to hike 345 km by May 2021.

    I want to separate the members of a club into deferent teams in order to have these teams compete amongst each other.

    • I want TO HAVE MORE SPORT REGISTERED IN A CLUB, NOT ONLY RUN SWIN OR RIDE. It will allow me to do HAVE A MORE COMPLETE COMPARISON AMONG MEMBERS OF MY CLUB. The reason that is important is because of  IT WILL BOOST MY COMMUNITY. An example of when I needed that was IN LOCKDOWN PERIOD.
    • Specific examples and details that illustrate the problem/confusion you are experiencing. For example: When I do FITNESS ACTIVITY, then ALWAYS happens and that is not ok because IT IS NOT REGISTERED IN MY CLUB.
    • Screenshots that help visually illustrate the problem. For example: Here is a picture illustrating my point OF CRITICITY from above. See how THE CLUB is doing BAD RECORDING?
    • An explanation of why this is important. For example: This is important to me because IT IS THE ONLY WAY TO BE INCLUSIVE, TO NOT DISCRIMINATE ANYONE.
    • If you propose a solution, an explanation of how that solution would help you and why that is important. For example: I think aN UPDATE THAT ALLOWS TO REGISTER IN A CLUB ALL TYPES OF ACTIVITY would be great because then I could see EACH ONE DOING HIS PREFERRED ACTIVITY, MAINTAINING A STRONG AND ANTHUSIASTIC COMMUNITY. This is important to me because I have to BOOST THE TEAM.

  • I agree with the request of other sports in leaderboard of clubs. Who in an inline skate club is interested in how much the others ride a bike?

  • CLUB LEADERBOARDS

    Out football team needs motivation these days
    So we want the leaderboards from a club really give us a very detailed overview.

    - You can edit the leaderboard with the stats you want to see (every stat from running to swimming to riding, from average speed to maximum speed to wathever stat Strava holds)
    - You can set up races, so the motivation comes with the competition... month x - run 5k as fast as you can / month y - run 10k as fast as you can / month z / ride 50k as fast as you can, run as much you can in week A...)
    - and i'm confident you guys can find a lot more interesting games

     

    So bring more competition in the Strava clubs please!
    These boring COVID-19 days need to be tackled! You guys can give your members something to strive for!! Make it happen and FAST please. It's for our mental well being. Keep everyone motivated and mobilized these days. you can make a huge difference in that.

  • Better Customization of Club Events

    -Allow multi-day club events - because when you're not meeting up anymore 'event week' is pretty common

    -Allow photographs or logos to be added to club events - because clubs want to create an identty

    -Allow club memebrs to view past club events - increases sense of community for new members

    -Allow Club Events to fall under 'other' and require no route - as above commest suggest

    I work for a non-profit organization and when covid started, we needed to act fast in order to re-invent community engagement. The current club events are extremely limited, allowing for very little creativity to keep our communities engaged.

    While I recognize that Strava is not a replacement community engagement platform, I would expect more customization for club activities. Like many other community groups suddenly searching for activity tracking apps, my charity brought dozens of new users to you through our promotion of Strava, so making these adjustments is in your benefit as well.

  • Something little now, but quiet anoying... the option to look back at the leaderbords for any week you want... now it's only the previous week...the whole history would be so nice.

  • Daniel,
    I really solidarize with you. I, myself, am coordinating a Strava Club with my students, ex-students, parents and teachers in the school I teach to try to engage them on doing more physical exercise in order to improve their general health, but focussing on their mental health. I have asked Strava, in an e-mail to the support, for the inclusion of other activities in the Clubs that choose "other sports" Leaderboard. I understand Cycling and Running is their major public, but they could have the categories Running, Cycling, Swimming, RCS (Running Cycling Swimming together) and all sports. It would be even better if the administrators of the "Other Sports" Clubs could choose the sports they would figure out in the leaderboard. Didn't get an answer yet.

    In the meanwhile, I go motivating the group by publishing a post, every week, with the total hours, distance, activities and elevation gain for all the activities in the club. I figured out that, when we click in the "Share Club Activities" and get the link in the embeded widget, it counts everything. It's not for each individual, but it is a start.

    Best regards and best exercises for you and your club,

  • I want Cross Country Skiing to be the activity that counts toward my club leaderboard. It will allow me to motivate my club members toward the sport that links us together. This is important because we live at 8000 ft in snow country, and during the winter, it is challenging to ride a bike. An example of why I needed that is that the leaderboard is a fundamental page for a club, and for it to display a sport that is not relevant for the season and the club's goal is pointless.

  • Please allow club activity to include walking as many others have asked for, we want to have an inclusive club for my work team and walking is a great way to encourage people to be more active.

  • Hello Strava

    The Club leaderboard display currently shows This week's and Previous week's information.

    Is it possible to have the ability to choose starting date and end date for the Leaderboard as the very first club event we are launching in our club starts on Wednesday and ends on Monday/Tuesday.

    It will be very difficult to filter the data on the leaderboard as it shows data from Monday(s) to Sunday(s) 

    Best Regards

  • Hello Strava Team,

    Mental Health is very key at the moment more than any time in my life time. People are keeping in touch using social media, and setting challenges in keeping fit.  A prime example our business is having a mental health and wellbeing week, which includes several challenges included in a leaderboard.

    The issue I am seeing is that a lot of people like to walk to build up their fitness in order to be able to run as an example, will not appear in this leaderboard and they are missing out.

    My ask is could you please include WALKING as an activity in Strava  Leaderboard.  I don't think this will be a hard thing for your to introduce into your production environment, but will benefit a lot of people who are crying out for this to happen.

    Many thanks in advance,

    Darren

  • Hi,

    I created a "commute" club. Unfortunately, it takes over all the activities of the members. Would it be possible to have only the "commute" activities? Would it be possible to exclude virtual outings and other outings not marked as "commute"?

    Thanks

  • As many have said. Be good to have the ability to select ‘Walk’ as a club activity. This is arguably the entry level activity that will encourage many to run, ride and do it all in Strava

  • I understand that at this time you are not accommodating personalized challenges for private clubs.  I'm curious, if I track my own club members progress for a challenge that I have created on a personal website, upon completion, can I award my club members with a finisher badge?  I have already created the badge, I would just need the ability to send the badges to finishers and have them displayed on their profile.  All the tracking would be done by me.

    •  I want walking and other activies to show on my club leaderboard. It will allow me to create more inclusive activities. The reason that is important is because I want to make the participation of work sporting activities accessible to all. An example of when I needed that was setting up a challenge for my colleagues.
    • When I went to set up a new club and invite the rest of the company (1000+ people) to join Strava and start logging their activities,  their walking or other activities do not contribute towards the club goal of x kilometres travelled/house active. That is not ok because it means that are not ready to start running or don't' cycle can't contribute towards the club goal. 
    • This is important to me because we are an inclusive company and want everyone to be involved. 
    • I think including activities that are not running, cycling or swimming would be great because then more people across the company can start using Strava and contribute. This is important to me because I want to create an inclusive and accessible challenge for my colleagues.
