Why is my Strava distance different from my Excel calculation?

Hi there. Please could someone advise why my Strava distance different to my calculations on Excel and what I have added up on my calculator. This is REALLY annoying.

  • Hi Jenny,

    Can you describe the issue more? What is your Excel sheet doing? Can you link to an activity?

    GPS isn't always accurate.

  • Hi Matt. I’ve got more miles showing on my Strava than I have on my Excel calculation. My calculator has the same figure as my Excel sheet. My activities are all on my Strava feed. Jenny

  • Jenny,

    One idea is to your profile page on the web version of strava and select "refresh stats" on the right side below the list of your stats.  It sometimes help to eliminate data errors in their accounting. 

    Another thought is whether you may have either recorded the same ride on two devices and uploaded duplicate entries by mistake or if you may have loaded a different type of activity, such as a run, that got tagged as a bike by mistake? 

    One way to see where the error is would be to look at your training log and match up the total miles for each week with what you have on your excel list and narrow down when the error occurs.  This is tedious, but might help if you run out of other options.

  • +1 to what Jason said. Refresh the stats, and if it still doesn't look right, look through week by week to see if you can find the anomalies.

  • Thanks Jason, I have just tried your first idea (it hasn’t resolved the issue); number two does not apply (I don’t have a second device and I’d never run anyway, couldn’t run if my life depended on it!!) and the third is what I’ve been doing, that’s how I figured that Strava and Excel were showing different totals. So I’m really stuck now, unfortunately. Jenny

  • Jenny - In that case, I would go ahead and submit a request (bottom center of this page) to the Strava techs and see if they can help you.  If you can show them a specific time period (say a week or couple of weeks) where the data isn't matching, it will make it a lot easier for them to see what is going on.
