Edit Activity time and distance

I know this is a long-standing issue, but I'd like to make the point for giving users the possibility of manually editing distance and time of existing activities.

I understand that the logic is that Strava does not want challenges and records to be affected. Bu this is a huge inconvenience for users who care little about challenges and records, but on the other hand, want an accurate record of their ACTUAL activities.

A possible solution would be:

a) users are allowed to edit distance and time so that their totals are accurate (and similar across platforms)

b) Challenges keep recording the original activity and not the edited one. I can leave with a month challenge underreporting my number of km. But I am annoyed by Garmin Connect and Strava giving different totals for activities.

What does support think of this?

  • I’d like to be able to fix incorrect treadmill data. Tonight, I ran 6 km but my Garmin watch reported just over 5 km.

  • Yet another trivial easy to implement requirement that they will never, ever get around to implementing.  I did a half-m yesterday with a PB which, due to my Garmin not recharging the night before, I added as a manual entry.  Despite the distance being entered as 13.1 miles (the pretty much defacto known distance in miles for a half, right?) it decided to convert that to 21.08 km instead of 21.09, which as it hasn't registered as my new half marathon PB, I'm assuming 21.09 is what Strava is expecting.

    I >could< delete it and do it again yes, but I've got some nice comments history on there which I didn't want to lose and THIS SHOULD BE AS EASY AS EDITING ANYTHING ELSE ON THE ACTIVITY!!!  SORT IT OUT STRAVA!

    THIS my friends is why so few people pay for the "extras".

  • Why can I not edit a treadmill run to add the distance? I am not interested in deleting it then adding it manually - I get the feed from my Polar app.

  • This is such an easy code fix. Let us edit distance. Just ran a 50k on certified course. Total distance off by 3/4 mile.

  • I won't lose hope.  

    Hopefully one of the people in charge will eventually read this (obviously won't happen)... 

    Or perhaps they will be in an event where it makes a distance or time mistake and they go to change the mistake only find out... CRAP... why is it this way?

    We can only hope!

    I would pay for this app for at least one year if they fixed or cared about this!

  • I just ran the Paris Marathon, and both my Strava time and distance are different from the official ones. This is beginning to become annoying

  • I would love this feature! I used Strava for the first time today and forgot to pause while I walked around today after my climb before the downhill and this timing is very different from my actual ride time on my bike computer. I was thinking about switching to strava for tracking but after this experience today think I may be sticking with my other tracking app.

  • I have ran two half marathons now, the distance is obviously has to be measured correctly and the race is certified.
    Twice now I have been short by 100m and 200m and so it is not recognised as a half marathon.
    I think all runners/cyclist don't want to fudge their stats but just want them to be accurate. GPS is never going to be perfect hence the need for a smidge of correction

  • I’ve officially stopped using strava for this reason. Switched to Runkeeper. It’s awesome!

  • There is seriously no way of editing your route? I did a hike today and then got in the car and went home. I realized on the road that I forgot to stop my hike on Strava. My hiking pace now looks awesome at least.

  • Honestly, this is a major issue. Inaccurate treadmill runs between Garmin (after calibration) to Strava (which ignores the calibrated distance) is getting really frustrating. Trainingpeaks gets it right, but even if I download the TP file (which is the post-calibration Garmin file) and manually upload it to the Strava activity, it still reverts back to the originally incorrect data.

    Time to get this fixed, folks.

  • +1 for this feature, Strava recovered a ride and recorded 70 hours on a 5 mile ride.

    WOW, just found that if I go into the ride and Edit, Strava fixes the time and I can save! Similar for Distance, but different location, thanks!

  • First info about these issues can be found from 2014, so strava feel purposely making exporting difficult or impossible. For example I got 600 .gpx (sportstracker) files to import, but every file has "broken" distance, moving time and other values from original export. Manually you can't change them and Strava Fix software feels like nightmare without succeed. "if this not working then find .xxx file. If u cant find file then find .xx2 file and if that isnt working then find this file.

    Anyway there should be possiblities to import/edit correct data or autofix program for some platform imports... And if someone is fearing of data manipulating for challenges then Strava should atleast make working .gpx importing for other platforms.

    But in my case I have think I should blame Sportstracker. Since sportstracker gpx imports shows wrong info in garming connect and in strava aswell "but in garmin u can change values to original manualy" in strava u just have to wish they are close to reality.  My last ride moving time was 1:57:38 but .gpx import file got 2:57:29. And also speed data is totally broken on strava (but in garmin connect). And most other imports I have exported had extra distance, mixed moving time and broken speed data for some reason. And after checking all my imports I hardly find "working" .gpx file.

  • Get the basics right... This is basic.

  • Must admit its a little annoying.  Twice I ran the national 50km championship (10 by 5km laps). One part of the course has poor satellite reception so as a result my 50km race only measured 49.xx kilometers. As a result, Strava doesn't recognize it as a 50km race.  I changed it in Connect alright but the SYNC has already occurred and I don't want to delete and resync (but I doth if a resync would result in proper distance anyway   )
