New Run Activity Pages

Please leave us your comments and feedback for the new Run Activity pages here.

Great news, runners: your new run activity page on Strava.com is now live. We spoke to tons of you about what is important when viewing your activities and those of others, and have incorporated your needs and experiences as runners into this new page. 

Some of the new features:

  • Social Bar: We added a social bar to the top of the page, putting your activity title, description, comments, kudos, Instagram photos, and other athletes on your run front and center.
  • Sharing Module:  Easily share your run to Facebook, Twitter, Google+, email, or embed in your blog from the sharing module located at the top, left-hand corner of the page.
  • Key Stats: Distance, time, average pace and elevation are located between the Social Bar and Elevation & Performance Chart. Your mile/km splits from your run are located on the right-hand side of your activity map.
  • Top Results: Get a snapshot of your achievements for the run, including any goals you have accomplished, PRs for best efforts, and segment achievements. 
  • Elevation & Performance Chart: We’ve vastly improved the visual interaction for reviewing and scrubbing all your activity details. Use the cursor to look at your pace, elevation, grade adjusted pace and grade at any point during your run.
  • Premium Analysis: We've rolled out changes to the Pace analysis and distribution, including the new analysis specific to a race. Now you can designate a run activity as a "Race" and get interactive and granular data such as race splits and projected finish times. 
  • Segment Efforts, Stats & Comparison: We’ve optimized the Segment Efforts within your activity so you can quickly scan your most meaningful achievements. We display key stats of your effort along with your leaderboard ranking. And when you’re looking at another athlete’s segment effort, you’ll be able to compare your PR against theirs.

Some of the changes: There are aspects of the run activity pages that are not currently available, with some of these aspects scheduled to return, redesigned, at a later date:

  • Viewing the Performance Chart with 'time' as the x-axis: The new performance chart is set with 'distance' as the x-axis, and we plan to re-add the option to switch to 'time' in the near future (coming soon). 
  • Lap data from a Garmin device: Will now be visible underneath the Segments view in the left sidebar for Free and Premium users.
  • Segment Comparison: The ability to compare your segment effort with your PR and/or the CR for the segment has been removed, and will return after a redesign incorporating the features from http://raceshape.com/.
  • Run "Score": The run intensity score that appeared previously under the Analysis tab is no longer available, but will return when the calculation is more accurate. 
  • GAP for mile splits: We're currently working on our algorithm for GAP. Once the algorithm is improved, GAP split data will be displayed on our new Premium Pace & Race Analysis pages.
  • Best Efforts: The technology available used to generate Best Efforts was not up to our high standard of accuracy. Due to this, we will continue to display any PRs you receive for the next few weeks, but then we will turn off Best Efforts in its current form. Over the next few months, we'll continue to explore innovative and relevant ways to bring this feature back to all users once it has reached our high standards of accuracy. We apologize for this change.

Some Known Issues:

  • FIXED Performance Issues: We're hard at work improving the performance issues that have been reported. Improvements coming soon.
  • FIXED Hidden Segments: Hidden segments will be re-adding this week (we still need to add the ability to hide and unhide segments)
  • FIXED Elevation Correction for your Run: Will be re-added very soon.

  • Who demolished Strava?
    I need at least 8 km min per run and since you update... Excuse me downdated Strava I had one chopped off at 6.3 and then the following day I hit pause at 6.1 to get some water and could not unpause, I immediately got the save run screen or discard it so I chopped that one below 8km so tonight I go11.3 km safely - Yay! except the save run screen froze i could not save the run, only discard it or cancel discard and go back to the frozen save run screen. In the end I had to remove the battery to do a cold boot and it finds my run and I was able to save it.

    I use Strava to Paint - I cant switch. Im forced to deal with this torture? Im not finished with my artwork. I am walking/running down every single street in my city (that is legal). After nearly 2800 km I am 3/4 the way finished with my painting. What other Apps can I use besides Strava that I can upload the activity to strava?

  • I thought the best efforts (which I still get on the phone app) might be there for the runners website under premium.  Sadly not.  I like the segments in Strava.  I hate the lack of best efforts and being able to track PRs over time.  Probably will ditch strava.

  • @Trace:  I'd definitely recommend the wahoo fitness app (on iPhone at least), you can configure it to upload to a bunch of different back-ends.  Strava, Garmin, MapMyRun, Nike+, Trainingpeaks, Runkeeper and more.....  The app itself is quite configurable for voice prompts and screen layouts, auto lapping etc.  Works great.

  • Strava's run changes are finally getting some much needed negative press: http://www.dcrainmaker.com/2013/07/cutting-removing-functionality.html

    Hopefully this will help push Strava to reinstate all the awesome features they've removed, and make Strava Run good again!

  • Great news, runners!

    Yeah right...  Reading that article is pretty sad.  Four months!  I hope there is another site working on the segment system that strava used to have since it is obvious strava doesn't plan on returning the functions they removed.

  • You would hope they would sit up take notice....... Have someone in PR respond....... Anything....... But nope it appears how Strava does business is just ignores people/firms they don't want to deal with...... Reading the blog shows just what kind of people are running the show.......... NO SHOWS........ It really is quite unbelievable.

  • For whatever reason, this thread doesn't seem to be actively answered, but new comments elsewhere seem to have customer support (I have had responses on some issues listed here).

     

    I would suggest new complaints / issues should have a new ticket raised.

  • Anyone knows of a site that has features similar to what strava had before update? The cycling part is great on Strava, but it is simply inadequate for running....

  • This thread is very active with unhappy campers........... Unfortunately its inactive with Strava..................

    There are other apps with relatively good features I use Runtastic is pretty good as is mapmyrun...... endomondo is another.

    All free to try, try uploading a run to one of the above and see what you like a lot is down to preference. I have an account with all and upload to all...... Tried a run on strava recently to 'Give it another go' but my looking at my data just felt alien.

  • I've just had another look at Garmin Connect (I use a Garmin watch) and it's better than I remembered! Like how you can add events to the calendar like an upcoming race and easy previous and next activity buttons so you can flick through your runs chronologically. Still like the look and feel of Strava and the segments but may give Garmin Connect another whirl as Strava seems to have come off the rails badly.

  • Now nothing else works. Garmin giving an error on the elevation gain and Strava not showing the right chart with pace per mile, the graphs not working, segments with no HR and elevation gain. I am still uploading here because of training log. But it is worst and worst. That other new feature of "star" doesn't make any sense, I am glad that is gone.You should be focusing in fix the graphs.

  • Please, ANYONE at Strava:  Can you just level with us?  Is there any progress at all on fixing the run pages, on dealing with what are quite clear problems.  It doesn't appear that there is.  There's dead silence on the boards. There's no improvement to the page. 

    Were the Tour de France ads sucking resources away that should go to engineers?  Are runners such an afterthought that you feel it's acceptable to just ignore that segment?  That we can't generate enough bad press to be worthwhile?

  • Haven't added a run in months but tried today to see if there was any progress. There is some, but it really is still terrible. How man months does it take to to fix it so that higher pace corresponds to higher y-value on the graph? That can't be tough to fix so can we assume that Strava thinks that is a better representation even though there has been lots of feedback otherwise? At least chime in to let us know you think that is better so we can stop hoping for a fix. I guess I'll check back in a few weeks again to see if it improves. Or sooner if the ride interface gets this dud of an update rolled out...

  • I've written to Strava about the inverted pace graph, pointing out how hard it is to read and pointing out the negative feedback about the graph.

    Quote from reply - "We are going to continue to have fast pace go down. I know not everyone loves this, but we did a lot of research on this, and we feel strongly that this is the best way for us to handle pace. There will be improvements to this view in the near future, but fast pace will continue to go down."

    I also wrote about a 5.2 km run I did that was faster than 22 minutes per 5k, clearly better than my alleged Strava 5k record of 22:50.  But Strava did not notice it, so this is a simple example proving the bug in best efforts detection and what I thought was an opportunity for the programmers to find the bug.  http://app.strava.com/activities/67970093

    Reply - "Best Effort inaccuracy is 100% related to bad GPS data, and while Strava works very hard to have the best run data in the world, there is no possible way that GPS data will ever be perfect. We are going to be continuing to de-prioritize their significance, simply because there is no way for us to make them accurate, no matter what we do. "

    I wrote back pointing out that the data for this run was good and proves that it is a bug.  I asked if the programmers had been told about it.

    Reply - "I did ask the engineers to look at this. They are moving further away from best efforts because of the pitfalls of bad GPS data."

  • Yes.  That's their cop-out. Best efforts work fine with GPS data on Endomondo, where I've yet to have it pull a false best effort for 1k, 1mile, 3mile, 5k or 10k.  The excuse about bad data is a lame one, another cop-out where they're essentially admitting that they cannot do what a competitor does. 

    The "works very hard to have the best data in the world" doesn't seem to cross over to segments, where there's very little quality control, where I've flagged a number of performances that were humanly impossible because of the GPS data jump and others where it was clearly done in a car.  A consistent story doesn't seem to be part of their program.

    I'd like to hear an explanation of *why* they decided that the inverted pace was a good idea, a reason more complex than "we discussed it and are sticking with it."  It's easy to both explain why it's a terrible idea -a speed of zero at the bottom axis is a floor when stopped but when inverted, there's no way to demonstrate it with a spike-- and that's beyond the simple notion that it's not intuitive and the purpose of graphs are to make data readily understandable.

    It's really like they're actively *trying* to drive people away, or at least drive people away from paying for the site.  STRAVA, if you're listening, please explain why, given how poorly you've handled this and how little you've done to remedy, why ANYONE should pay you anything.

  • It's easy for me... I am revoking my premium membership.  The website not displaying this info makes the app not worth paying for.  I get the info on the application anyways, I don't care if it's not 100% accurate.  All it needs is the ability for me to remove a run from a 'best effort' list if I know the GPS data to be dodgy.  Especially as the 'best efforts' effectively exists for the segments (which is, for me, the killer feature for strava that no-one else replicates).

  • Seriously, are you designing this new interface for us USERS?

    How can make sense to have a slower pace showing an increase on axis Y when you are actually stopped and your HR is going down? Are you developing a product to satisfy someone's Ego at Strava or developing a product to satisfy USERS and make sense?

    Stop to be stubborn and fix this horrible mistake you are doing! Only because other websites did this same mistake doesn't mean that is good and you should do too! You used to make sense and be innovative, now you don't make sense at all!

    Map my run does leadership board too from what I saw past time. Best Efforts: Endomondo and Training Peaks.

    This arrogant attitude from Strava won't really make people like, it will only make us talk bad about you and dislike your arrogance. I am glad that I paid my membership at Training Peaks instead of here. I would have been a big waste of money if  have paid the membership here after this crap you have done with the running pages. I am just checking the leadership boards but just finding useless this new interface everytime I see my workouts.

  • Just in case anyone follows the link to my 5.2 km run posted above, it *does* now have the correct best effort for 5k in it (contrary to what I said).  Elle noticed that post, was able to fix the best effort and opened a support ticket to notify me.  I don't yet know if this applies to future runs (i.e. bug fixed) or was just a manual correction.

    On the inverted graph, I quickly created an Endomondo account and uploaded my last 3 runs there.  The run graph is more compact, easier to read, has distance / time X-axis option and is generally a good example of how the graph should be, with the pace graph really a "speed" graph but with "pace" marked on the axis (similar to the old strava one).  I don't want to "go" there because of Strava's segments and social aspects, but that graph is a nice example, and best efforts seem to be handled well.

  • I agree Strava needs to stop being so stubborn just because "we" think it is the best way forward does not mean that it is.........

    If you listened to your customer whom you are making the product for in the hope of them paying you money NONE are saying they like the changes so therefore why stick to your guns? We are almost a third of a year into this mess with almost no improvement and no longer getting responses from you as a company?

    I don't understand at what level you think that this is the appropriate way to treat your customers?

  • Surely STRAVA support realizes that user acceptance of the new Run format has not followed that of a typical post implementation j-curve, and that people are genuinely unhappy with the new 'features' and the lack of support that followed.

    The ONLY reason why I continue to upload my runs is for the social aspect. I don't bother attempting to 'analyse' my run data because it's absolute rubbish! Can't zoom into sections of my run, can't see HR values on the performance graph, inverted pace is ridiculous.

    Who ever thought that an inverted pace graph was a good idea is an absolute idiot, clearly not a runner, and clearly shouldn't be designing interfaces for runners. My guess is their ego is so large that they can't swallow their pride and admit that their fantastic idea is in fact one of the most disliked 'new features' on the run pages.

    Please STARVA listen to the people replying to this thread, because I can guarantee for every 1 person that posts a reply here there are hundreds more keeping quiet, waiting for these improvements to come through.

    I think you owe it your paying customers who have had to endure this painful upgrade process by gifting them free 12 months membership - starting from when you actually have a usable product up and running again.

  • Due to this whole interface fiasco, I have pretty much stopped using the website to analyze my runs. Now I only use the Android app and SmashRun (which displays my data in a much more useful format). Although I haven't yet canceled my Premium subscription, since I paid a year in advance, I'm starting to seriously consider not renewing it this November. It's not even the botched "upgrade" that bothers me the most - it's the head in the sand response by Strava and its employees that really irritates me. In the face of growing criticism, Strava has chosen to simply keep quiet and conduct its business as if nothing is wrong. Here's a free hint - ignoring a problem doesn't make it get away, but rather (in most cases) makes the situation even worse.
