Add 'Ruck' as an Activity Type

I am an Officer in the Army and I just started using Strava 1.5 months ago when I got my first smartphone (a little late on the electronics curve I am). I love the app! I haven't upgraded to premium yet, but it's very tempting. It's amazing to see all the different types of activities you have incorporated into your product. I'm writing because even though I love to run, I also love to ruck.

Rucking is a major activity we do in some branches of the military. Long distance and timed rucks are very important. Please add that option to your type of activities as I need to see and analyze my performance on the rucks differently than my runs. If there was an option to select a 'Ruck' activity, I would want to track what boots I used, gear I may have worn and the weight of the pack. Thanks for listening to my suggestion.

With the recent upgrade to my cell phone I did some research into which app I should use to track my activities. Strava was at the top of many lists. So I downloaded several and tried them out. Strava has by far been the easiest, most intuitive, and most excellent app I've used. I've since deleted all the other apps and use Strava only. Thanks for a great product!  - Thom

  • Thanks for the feedback Thom! Great to hear that you love Strava and are using the app for your Rucks.

  • Thanks Elle. The simplest aspect to add to the ruck tracking would be the weight. You can't really compare the same segments when the loads can vary from 20-80 (or more).

  • Please add!  I participate in GORUCK events and am constantly training for these with ruck marches.  The ability to add what weight I'm carrying over how far would be great.  I need to be able to cover 12 miles in 3:30:00 carrying 55lbs dry weight (before water) and Strava is already my go to app next to my Garmin for redundancy.  Having the RUCK activity would be a great add to Strava.  Thanks for not only considering this, but making it happen soon!
    Cheers,

    Steve

  • I don't care about adding the activity "ruck" - "hike" does perfectly fine for me :-) But I would like to record pack weight, or at least be able to edit athlete weight per activity.

  • I too ruck and am non-military, but participate in GORUCK events. As mentioned above I very much would like to see a Ruck activity added as well as the option to add what weight my ruck was. I submitted a ticket (#511141) prior to adding my feedback to this thread.

  • Has there been any response to your request?  I would really like to add "Ruck" to the Activity Type and adding the weight carried would be a nice addition.  Today I use Run as the Activity and just add the weight in the notes, but then it gets messy when comparing different runs.

  • No official response that I know of, besides Elle's comment below thanking us for using Strava. I continue to use the 'hike' activity and post weight in the description in order to keep the results separate from my run analysis.

  • An idea - Put this thread on Goruck FB pages if you have access. I just posted on the main page.

  • I also use "hike" and would like the ability to add pack weight or gear weight  the way you can specify the weight of different bicycles.

  • I agree. Its now 2016. Any advancement on the rucking category? Specifically interested in adding weight and having the subsequent calories revised.

  • Agreed.  I would love to have Ruck as an option and be able to record weight.  I use rucking as everything from grueling workout to recovery and to be able to tell the difference in Strave (just by looking at weight) would be AWESOME!

  • I have logged many of my Rucks as a hike, but they are not really the same. And I would love to be able to enter my weight carries as well. STRAVA, please add rucking.. Partner with GORUCK and potentially get a bunch of mew members.
