Allow me to tag Runs as 'with baby jogger'

NB if you do want this feature added, please click the "upvote" so that the people at Strava will be able to judge its relevance!

So, I recently started using Strava.

These days, my time to run coincides with the time that I take care of Tisa, our 10-month old daughter. Luckily, ever since we have purchased a jogging stroller these two things are possible to combine. To a certain extent at least.

While I really enjoy running with the 'jogger', it is not exactly the same as running. Of course. You're pushing a stroller, you can't really use your arms, or run at full stride. Likewise, running with a jogger makes you less 'agile', so crossing streets, or moving onto and off the sidewalks causes your speed to drop to zero. And I may be working my butt off pushing the jogger up even a slight hill, but still I will not be able to match the speed of the person who just started running last month. Naturally, this is reflected in speed, and therefore, my ego starts to complain.

I think adding 'run with baby jogger' as an activity on Strava could be welcome for people like me. For three reasons (from least to most important):

  1. it will do some justification as to why my splits are twice as slow as they used to be.
  2. it will allow me to compare my times against other 'baby joggers', somewhat like the age groups.
  3. it will let me explore where other 'baby joggers' go for their workouts, allowing me to discover new routes that are baby-jogger-friendly.

I realize the demand for this feature could be very small. But who knows, perhaps you have already received more of these requests. And I could imagine it would be relatively easy to incorporate into the Strava platform.

That's it.

With kind regards, Maarten

  • Strava! We need to be able to separate our normal runs from buggy runs they are so different and I'd love to be able to easily see how many miles my co-pilots have joined me on

  • Please add this! I would love to be able to differentiate between my buggy runs and my buggy-less lines. There is a huge community of buggy runners which would only increase if this was a Strava function.

  • PleAse please please add this feature. Buggy/stroller running is becoming ever more popular with parents of young children as a way of keeping active. I don’t understand the reluctance.

  • Please add being able to record running with a buggy. This would be a great feature.

  • Absolutely agree to having running buggy as an option to differentiate runs. Especially as my local parkrun is so hilly!

  • Come on Strava, why is it so hard? It's such a simple fix and would make tracking buggy runs vs solo run so much easier, not to mention my pbs.
    I first started buggy running while on maternity leave and it saved my sanity. And being able to say you ran X no of buggy.miles a year is something people would be very very proud to see. Give it a go and see how tough it can be!

  • It looks like this was requested quite a few years ago. I would love to see buggy/stroller running included as an option. It’s getting more and more popular. Come on Strava, add this on!

  • So Strava gives Roller Skiers their own workout mode, but not parents jogging with their children in a stroller? Are there just a bunch of childless "bros" running the development and user interface team? It's shocking they're still ignoring parents after 5 years of requests to add this feature.

  • I suggest we get on twitter and shame them into action. It seems that's an effective way to get corporations to "engage positively with their audience." https://twitter.com/alexdecordoba/status/1092887590930239488

  • Looks like lots of people have wanted this feature for a while now Strava! Like joggers and bikes, it would be awesome to be able to know how many km's you have done with your pram! Even being able to add it as equipment would be awesome, but would be even better to be able to log activities with it! Both hubby and I run with our pram, it would be a very welcomed feature for a lot of people by the sounds of it!

  • If you'd just add "run with stroller" as an activity type you could differentiate and also calculate caloroies more appropriately for that activity.

  • Just adding my vote to this feature request. I’d like to be able to segment my Buggy runs from others.

  • I couldn’t agree with this more. If you do both buggy and non buggy runs around the same routes there is no way to differentiate and track your progress. If Strava were to support this it would help promote this method of activity to busy parents and encourage more people to get active.

  • This would be great and surely minimal effort to add. There are ever increasing numbers of buggy at the runs I go to.

  • Any updates on this? I love both the "gear" option and Run Type option. I'd really like to be able to track how many miles I do with my kids. I just went through and manually calculated it but there has to be an easier way...

  • I have now been running with a buggy for 4 years. My occupant wont want to come with me soon, but for now she will occasionally agree. She weighs 3 stone. Pushing the buggy is significantly more effort than running alone. I still think a buggy running feature would benefit many, many people and would be useful to so many people.

  • I love to see longstanding feature requests being taken care of. This seems like one that would be easy to implement quickly - simply the ability to tag an activity as a stroller run.

  • I have now resorted to tagging my stroller runs as 'Wheelchair', so my stats don't get so screwed up. Nice one Strava...

  • Agree with the topic. Adding an activity type, "run with stroller", for parents/people like me who do it regularly, would be helpful. Running with a stroller makes quite a difference in run times, and it would be good to track these runs separately. Thanks.

  • Hi Strava, I notice there was an acknowledgement that this feature wasn't being prioritised a few years ago.

    I can see that there are now many sporting types, (eg, Handcycle, Velomobile ride, SUP and Kite surf to name a few) would you now reconsider this given the popularity of pram/stroller running? 

    My personal opinion is that it doesn't need to be a whole new sport, (so the leaderboard for a pram run and normal run would be the same) but activities could be viewed and tagged as being with a pram/stroller.

    Hoping you can re-consider your position on this.
