  • I want to turn off these challenges showing up on my feed page....I have zero interest in them and want to be able to opt out of this nonsense

  • Strava has something to do about some people entering climbing challenges and showing insane amount of climbing, likely, due so faulty barometric in their devices.

    It shouldn't be difficult to detect those on upload, because, from my experience looking at a few of those activities, huge elevation spikes occur pretty much instantly, for example suddenly jumping 60,000 ft up. Strava could detect those unreal elevation changes and just automatically apply elevation correction. Simple solution, and it would mostly fix the problem. Does that sound reasonable?

  • I want a feature allowing you to create a challenge for a fundraising effort. By having this in Strava, anyone interested in the fundraising attempt would be able to see the basic details but then also the activities completed towards completing it. It would allow me to set a long term challenge for which people could sponsor me for. I think this would be helpful as it would provide visibility, both for me and others, to see how I’m progressing towards the overall target. By allowing people to comment on the challenge, this would allow people to post motivational messages and share my progress. This could be extended to then allow other Strava users to combine together in completing team fundraising challenges.

  • It would be nice to have some easier riding challenges. Runners get 5k and 10k (maybe an hours exercise) and maybe other short distances but the shortest a cyclist gets is 100k which is an all day exercise. Thankyou.

  • Multiple users commenting on this forum have noted the problem with bogus results on the leaderboard. Yet, those same bogus data providers keep showing up in challenge after challenge. This leads users to question the validity of these challenges. The inaction to clean the mess makes all of the challenges less interesting. Once you start to lose interest in the challenges, you start to devalue the app. From there, it's a very short trip to oblivion for any entity. Ferret out the impossible entries Strava or embrace extinction.

  • Re the March 50km ride challenge...

    As the Challenge is to ride 50km in one ride, should n't the leaderboard rankings be based on the number of times somebody completes a 50km ride ? Not the longest distance ridden in one go ? At the present, if you ride 50kms+ every day, or even twice a day, for a month you will still be at the bottom of the leaderboard while somebody who does just one ride of 200-300kms will be in the leaders. The challenge is not for the longest ride in a month, so IMHO Strava have got the leaderboard back to front. The leaders should be those who consistently complete a 50km ride (well, that's my humble opinion !)

  • I ask myself, why is it, that the 400 Kilometer in a month challenge is allowed also by handbike, but 50/100 Kilometer in one ride challenge is not??? I feel fooled while i do sports in a wheelchair, when seeing something like that. Please change the 50 and 100 km, so i am able to reach that goal too. It doesn't make sense like how it is now.

    Kind regards.

  • BIG "ditto" to Simen M.'s point #1 about the top three activity tabs. For me, and possibly many others, two of the tabs are just wasted bytes and electrons showing zeroes. If we can choose our distance units from miles or kms, surely we should be able to set a preference for the activities shown ?

  • I'm new to Strava and after one month as a paid subscriber, I must say, it wonderful EXCEPT: (a) constant suggestions about who to Follow, and (b) constant reminders about who I follow that joined a Challenge.  

    I have literally cut back on who I follow just because I don't want to be bombarded by more nonsense when they enter/create/complete a Challenge, so (a) and (b) are incompatible for your goals. 

    Please make anything other than Exercise Activities in the Activities Feed stop.  Thank you. Steve

  • Oftentimes, a user will have signed up for multiple challenges which are running concurrently. It would be great if Strava let the user choose the banner to be displayed. As an example, I’m currently in the Poland Spring 5M kickoff and the Virtual NYCM.
    Strava is displaying the 5M banner and I would want the NYCM achievement to be displayed.

  • I really enjoy taking part in challenges, it doesn't matter to me where I am on the leaderboard I just use the challenges to motivate getting up in the morning and going for a run.  BUT it is very difficult to track your progression without opening a webpage for each challenge. On the mobile app the icon has a green progression ring around it and you can get a very basic idea (percentage wise) of how you are tracking. I am "old school" and prefer my PC to my phone and would therefore like to request that under the Challenges drop down menu you add a "My Challenges" button which houses the challenges you have joined and when opened has a progression bar under each challenge giving you the important info you need to complete a challenge i.e. distance to go, days left etc. etc.

  • Please create a monthly swim distance challenge.

    We need it, for instance, to create our triathlon club ranking by simply picking the 3 rankings for run, bike & swim from monthly distance challenges.

    We have many run & bike monthly challenges, but no swim challenge.

    Also, as asked above, year challenges will be welcome.

    Thank-you.

  • Some feature request that I frankly find surprising I have to make :)

    1. Custom top three activities. In the app there are three main activities, cycling, running and swimming. I think these should be customizable or, at the very least, represent the three activities the athlete do the most. For my part, I never swim for exercise, but I do a lot of Nordic skiing during winter. Strava supports logging a wide range of sports and activities, but in this specific feature the design screams "We are for triathletes only!" With 55 million users on Strava and only 2.5 million triathletes in the world this makes no sense what so ever. In my case the three tabs should read "Cycling, Running, Nordic skiing". 

    2. Clubs can only be running og cycling clubs. For the same reason as above this type of design excludes users. I've made a family club where the goal is to inspire and challenge each other to activity despite living in different cities and ranging from early 20s to late 60s in age. However the club stats only count running and cycling (and perhaps swimming, no-one in the family has done any during the Norwegian winter). Nordic skiing, weight training, hiking and other sports are not counted. Also, clubs in the app, only show weekly stats. I'd love to be able to check previous weeks and longer segments of time, like month and year (year-to-date).

    3. I'd also love to be able to make a club challenge. For ex. "Who can log the most elevation meters during February" or "The most minutes of activity during easter break", "The longest activity (in km or minutes) over the summer" The list goes on. I recently heard an interview with the Strava founders where they said they were going to roll out a feature where users can challenge their friends. This is a great step on the way to a more flexible service.

    4. Strava is all about motivating each other to do activity. One way Strava does this very well is being able to get motivated by friends' activity even if they don't work out at the same time as you, or even in the same place. However, the design of Strava is very limited by the lack of ability to challenge each other directly. It would be great if I could challenge a friend to beat me on a particular segment, or challenge us both to reach a specific time on a segment. "Hey Carl! Let's see who can ride this segment under 2:30 first!"

    5. More stats! I love stats. I'd love to see my cumulative yearly stats, total and by sport/activity. As well as by month and week, like now. I'd also love to be able to set more goals. As far as I can tell I can set goals on km/week or year or specific time goals for segments. I'd also love to be able to set a goal for elevation meters per week and year. I'm sure different type of goals are desired for many of all the activities offered on Strava.

     

    After having been a Strava user for many years these are the things I miss and that would make Strava much, much better. Remember, everything is by design. Inclusion as well as exclusion. As it is now, there is a lot of exclusion designed into Strava. I'm rooting for you and actively encourage my friends to use Strava so I hope you will help my by designing their inclusion.

  • Challenges is perhaps the single most useful feature for me. I love it! Nothing motivates me more to go jogging than the prospect of failing a challenge (even though I have no intention of redeeming the reward for said challenge). It's a weird psychological game but it works fantastic for me.

    Having said that, I wish there was a more customisable view of challenges, or maybe just different sort options. I'd love to be able to view the challenges I'm signed up for and sort them by finish date, by progress or by remaining effort required.

    If I can see at a glance that there's a challenge that will finish tomorrow and for which I only need to run another 5km, I will find it hard not to go put on my running shoes straight away.

  • How about some more challenging challenges? Ride 100km? That's a challenge? Also a way to mute them from other people, sometimes my feed is 99% "x joined a challenge" related.

  • Please creat a properly functioning 75 to 80 age group that excludes people outside that age group.Some of us are still “ going for it” and would like our efforts to be properly recorded as are the lower age groups.

  • Request:  Regular monthly challenges for Non-Cardio based activities.  In particular, a monthly challenge for Strength Training (for example, 10 hours per month) and a monthly challenge for Yoga (Stretching) (for example, 5 hours per month)

    Strength training and Stretching are vital for all athletes, but especially for those of us who are 60+.   Yes, I have my weekly goals set up for these (in addition to my cycling and walking), but I would love to see finishers badges in my Trophy Case - that would help me with my motivation - especially for Yoga/Stretching.

  • CO2 saved.

    As a car owner - I want to be able to show my journey was done via active travel rather than driving. Also summarise CO2 saved per person per year. Set targets and award badges in the same way we have for miles ridden etc.

    We have a commute option however that does not allow us to record all trips where we may have chosen to drive - and lose the ability to show we have made an effort to choose active travel rather than drive. We may choose to cycle to the shops, visit friends etc.

    Why important? The world needs to change and we all  need to see the difference we make when choosing active travel. Also - Strava can promote itself and sell/share this data by grouping for countries and areas.

  • Frederick....from reading the info the answer seems to be no. It seems that the first one is a triathlete training camp, so you have to be part of that. And  the other one is, according to Google Translate, a bit confusing...first the event link  says the event has been cancelled, then it says there is a virtual race, and then there is something at a famous running circuit in japan ? The challenge info seems to say it is at the athletics stadium, which happens to be a Strava segment.

  • Crear Desafíos, en un periodo de tiempo determinado, como tiene Endomondo, sería genial, para motivar a los miembros de un Club.
    También sería genial una tabla de clasificación de MMP "Mejor Marca Personal" por club, provincias, edades... y filtrar por 1km, 5km....... 42km

  • Set up a club (Emigrating from Facebook group and google sheets) with that challenge of completing the year (2021 in this case) in distance. However, there is no way to show members distance for the year even though it is calculated by strava on each members individual page. Multi sport also shows time rather than distance. Being able to either join or set up a distance challenge over a full year is really needed.

  • Hi

    Is it possible to create a goal such as completing the Gran Fondo every month for the year or a Half Marathon every month for a year. I can see in goals you can set a distance goal but it would be great to be able to set a specific challenge goal. This year for instance I wanted to complete a Marathon in April, if I set a distance goal for April all my training runs counted towards it rather than one specific run at some point during the month. Hope that makes sense?

  • I really enjoy the Strava sponsored monthly challenges because they are a big motivator for me to achieve them. 

    It would be really nice to still achieve them even if your activities are not set to "Everyone". Even if you don't get to participate in the leaderboard. But I think it's still a great motivation to work for it personally and get the trophy in your trophy case.

  • Is it possible to have a feature where a little list/table is generated, showing active challenges?

    It could then show the dates, and the progress bar for each challenge.

    This would help make people choose exercise to target certain challenges, and add a competitive edge!

  • Hi- I received a Strava email congratulating me on being one of a very small percent completing all 12 Strava Gran Fondos 2020.

    In fact, I have completed the past 85 consecutive Strava Gran Fondos!  This has inspired a number of friends, followers, and patients to start their own streak- making it a priority to complete each month.  As a physician- I try to set an example, and encourage Exercise is Medicine for all, exercising regularly!

    I want to view the top consecutive number of Strava Gran Fondos completed- we would be surprised if more than a handful have 80+ consecutive?  It will allow others to see that it is possible to maintain consistency in training for many years.  This is important because riders tend to come and go, not sticking to regular exercise. Exercise is Medicine and more people need to prescribe to this!

    Best, 

    Matt Werd

  • I would like to be able to share a particular Challenge with my Club. This would assist me in encouraging Club members to join and complete a Challenge. 

    Currently, the only way I can share Challenge information is within friends. I want this expanded to be able to share among members of my Club.

  • Hi, 

    I live in an area with a tonne of Mountain Bikers using strava. Most of the Biking Challenges are focused on Road Riding. Could we have different Activity types for road vs mountain biking and have challenges specific to just those activities? 

    Thank you!

  • Bonjour,

    je suis en VTTAE et je fais pas mal de sorties avec des VTT musculaires.

    leurs segments ne sont pas visibles en VTTAE et inversement , m'obligeant a recréer "mes propres" segments alors que nous passons au même endroit.

    Du coup eux sont en Local Legend alors que moi non ! même si je fais le double de passage que eux.

    idem on pourrait avoir un classement commun avec un marquage pour différencier VTT et VTTAE sur une même sortie

    encore une fois pour connaitre leurs temps KOM/QOM/LL je suis obligé d'aller sur leur profil alors que nous avons fait le même parcours (puisque je suis sur des segments VTTAE et eux VTT).

    aucun des 60 segments que j'ai créés/recréés n'est dans le local légende, alors que les mêmes en VTT le sont.

    merci
