  • Olá pessoal referente ao link https://support.strava.com/hc/pt-br/community/posts/360073465732/comments/360013023551

    Gostaria que só levassem em consideração a criação das caminhadas padrão assim como ocorrem com as corridas padrão do Strava....acho que deveria tem no mínimo desafios padrão para que as pessoas que não consigam correr possam completar esses desafios e se sentirem motivadas.

    - Caminhada 05km
    - Caminhada 10km
    - Caminhada 15km
    - Caminhada 20km
    - Caminhada 50km
    - Caminhada 100km
    - Caminhada 300km

    Um exemplo só temos o desafio de Abril 50km, não poderia ter mais desafios desse por padrão...?

    br / community / posts / 360073465732 / comments / 360013023551

    I would like you to only take into account the creation of standard walks as they do with standard Strava races .... I think there should be at least standard challenges so that people who are not able to run can complete these challenges and feel motivated.

    - Walk 05km
    - 10km walk
    - Walk 15km
    - Walk 20km
    - 50km walk
    - Walk 100km
    - 300km walk
    As an example we only have the challenge of April 50km, could not have more challenges like that by default ...?

  • Premium users should have the option to select which activity (cycling, running, swimming, etc) on their profiles so that only Challenges specific to their activity would  be offered. It’s important because it’s relevant and reduces unwanted interruptions. It woild also be quite easy to do.

  • We need Strava to add an 80 and over age category. They did that when I turned 75 and now I'm getting ready to be 80 and don't want to compete with those 75 year-olds!

  • Add a "consistency" challenge, as opposed to total distance, time, etc. 

    As a regular “staying healthy” user with friends on Strava, I want to create consistency challenge with friends such as “3 exercises longer than 20min per week” or simply “3 runs per week”, so that I could engage friends frequently with some meaningful social activity and make lightweight commitment to building fitness habits.

  • - badges; why not standard 15k for running; standard badges for swimming, standard badges for training-time?
    - why are other challenges so hard to find (only a few possible via the site)

  • Request:  Additional distance challenge for Walking - 100 km (or 75 km)

    I regularly complete the 50 km walking challenge before the end of the month.   This month, Oct'21, I completed the 50 km on Oct 11; I currently have 85 km through Oct 26. 

    Yes, I have my weekly goals set up to meet, but as a 60+ "athlete", it gives me great joy to show off my Trophy Case to "The Grands".  They are very proud of me.  I would love a finishers badge that more accurately reflects my activity.  (Just to Note:  I also regularly complete the 400 km Cycling Challenge.)

  • Please consider adding more walking challenges for distances of 100, 150, 200km a month.  There are some folks who 10km a day and would like that kind of motivation.  Thanks!

  • Can you at Strava look at these requests related to people asking for a way to turn off / hide Challenges and notice of people joining challenges from their feed?  I see this request as the most frequent request and more support (higher # of 'yes' comments) on this request than any other.  So, please give us a way to not see any notice of a Challenge in our feed.  They are just a clutter for people who do not have any interest in them.

  • I would like to suggest what I'd call challenge overflowing.

    The point of challenges is to encourage people to exercise more, to do an effort so reach a given goal. In my opinion, for someone who runs 250k per month, a "run 100k" challenge is not a challenge. It's easy for him/her.

    The overflow I'm suggesting would be that once you reach a point beyond (to be discussed) the challenge's goal, you get hidden from it's leaderboard and are automatically added to the leaderboard of the challenge with the next higher goal. If you fail to reach that goal by the end of the challenge you still get the previous challenge's badge.

    Example:
    Some assumptions : There are challenges for running 100k, 200k, 300k and 400k in a month. I run 11k per day every day. The overflow threshold is 25% of the difference between the lower and the higher challenge.

    On day 10 I win the 100k badge. On day 12 however, I pass the 100k + 25% = 125k threshold, so I'm removed from the 100k leaderboad and added to the 200k leaderboard. On day 19 I win the 200k badge. On day 21 I pass the (200k-100k) + 25% = 225k threshold, so this time I'm removed from the 200k leaderboard and added to the 300k leaderboard. On day 28 I win the 300k badge. On day 30 I pass the (300k - 200k) + 25% = 325k threshold, I'm removed from the 300k leaderboard and added to the 400k leaderboard. On day 31 the challenge ends because it's the end of the month. I get the highest badge I've won that month, which is the the 300k badge, and only that one, not the 100k and 200k badge.

    This way I've been challenged to keep up my efforts to reach a higher goal. This way the 100k badge remains reserved for less talented/experienced runners for whom this 100k really is a challenge and who now have a bigger/realistic chance of ever reaching the top of the leaderboard because it's no longer bloated by runners for whom this distance isn't a challenge at all.

  • Mittlerweile funktioniert es ja, dass man Herausforderungen erstellen kann die vom 01.01. bis zum 31.12. offen sind. Vielen Dank, dass ihr es ermöglicht und nicht auf 4 Wochen Laufzeit weiterhin begrenzt.

    Ist es möglich, dass Ihr nun freischaltet, dass mehr als 24 Teilnehmer eingeladen werden können?
    Ist es euch möglich, dass man ganze Clubs einladen kann und nicht jeden Teilnehmer einzeln?

     Vielen Dank!

  • I think the cycling climbing challenges should be reserved to real rides. I know modern Smart Trainers do wonders but a virtual climb is not the same as a real one.

    If that's not possible you could add a selection button the allows us to select the real rides only.

  • There are a few monthly challenges that are segment related.

    It is unclear to me if we need to be physically at that location or if we can still participate everywhere in the world on a course with same distance/elevation ?

    For example: There are currently two such segment running challenges:

    Desafio PRO Training Camp - Correndo em busca do KOM/QOM

    Komazawa Challenge by Setagaya 246 Online Half Marathon

    Can someone explain this to me? Can I still obtain trophies for these Brazil/Japan segments all the way from Montreal, Canada?

    Thanks a bunch!

    Fred.

  • I want to echo a point made by someone else in Dec 2020 in this thread, especially in light of an email I got from Strava.

    Having done 12 monthly challenges (Gran Fondo 100km), I get an email with a nice golden badge in it. Why not make this actually available in one's profile, as an additional reward only available for having done all 12?

    Secondly, I would prefer to not make my data set to everyone - but I do not care if I am in any leaderboards. I'd like the recognition, and for my followers to know - anyone else is irrelevant.

    I'd also like to see rowing based challenges, per comment above.

  • Create a challenge for all at 3000m or 4810m called "climbing Mont blanc"

    Could you create a challenge at 3000m per month and 4810m called "climbing Mont blanc".  I'm sure that challenge could agregate a lot of trailers.

    thanks.

  • Please can Strava improve the Standard filtering on Challenge results.

    Example:

     - I signed up for the April 2021 Running 10K Challenge
     - On the web page, one of the filter options is to filter by age group (and it defaults to *my* age group)
     - But it just takes forever for whatever back-end query Strava runs to return anything. I mean, the results are never returned.

    Observations:

     - It used to be better. There seem to be a lot more people signing up for this challenge now.

     - At its simplest, adding (an) index(es) to the relevant database table(s) might be enough to fix this problem. My guess is that in this case more might be needed (e.g. the SQL query might need to be changed) depending on how ages and age groups are represented in your database. (Well, obviously your tech people would realise that almost instantly, but why not spell it out?)

     - I don't know who decides what data is presented on any given challenge page, which of the other flters provided as standard on the 10K running page suffer from the same problem, or which of them is frequently used by your users (e.g. "country", "age").

  • I want to follow my previous year's running activity, but I can not find a way to browse it. After the race, I want Strava to compare my previous selected previous activity and my just finished race showing me all the analysis that Strava can get.

  • Simen M. Thank you for your suggestions. In regards to your 5th point, we always have a highly anticipated end-of-the-year feature, called 'Year in Sport'. It is a display of your yearly statistics and highlights, but we recently launched an in-app feature known as Monthly Recap (available under the Progress tab in the You section on the mobile app). As far as additional goals are concerned, we implemented the ability for subscribers to create goals for any activity type, as well as select the frequency (weekly, monthly, annual), and goal type (distance, time, elevation). You can read more about goals in our support article: https://support.strava.com/hc/en-us/articles/216918687-Goals-on-Strava

  • Please add a Run Climbing Challenge that is only 1000m

    2000m can be hard to achieve if you don't run in a terrain with many hills or run very long distances. I can easily complete the 5k challenge every single day and the 10k several times each month if I want to but 2000m Run Climbing is much harder, I have to struggle a bit too hard so please add a 1000m Run Climbing Challenge.

  • Hello Connecticut C. 
    I understand you're interested in creating your own cycling challenge. As you may have seen, we launched a new feature on the Mobile App called Group Challenges yesterday. You can read about the new feature and find step-by-step instructions detailing how to create your own Group Challenge and invite your friends on our support article.

    We would also appreciate any feedback regarding Group Challenges be posted under our Group Challenges thread to distinguish it from this one. We're very excited about this new feature and hope our athletes enjoy it.

  • Given the introduction of individual challenges, the comment by Crispin that "Due to the great demand on Challenges, we are unable to accommodate requests for self-serve, club-based, or private Challenges at this time" now seems overcome by events. However, the individual challenges are too limited in scope to work for a club (one would have to have follows for all club members, etc.). Please reconsider and add the ability to do group challenges. Thank you!

  • Hi folks.

    I would like to have the possibility to create challenge on specific segment and specific timespan (example: 1st to last of August 2021) and specific club (or just list/group of people). It would allow me/us to virtually compete with each other and push ourselves even harder.

    Thanks for considering and upvoting.

  • I've enjoyed taking part in challenges and it has gotten me into really good healthy habits. It would be helpful on the website to have a progress page for the challenges that shows a progression for open challenges and a summary tab for completed challenges and results. Unless you go into the individual challenge, the website doesn't have anywhere showing progression on challenges joined. The mobile app has basic progression information under the "You" menu option at the bottom of the screen. It's much easier to see on my laptop when reviewing where I stand  and comparing the progress of multiple challenges. Please create a "My Challenges" page on the website reflecting open challenges with their progress, completed challenges as well as missed challenges.

  • Jan KrejčíkThere already is a way to do that with how it is set up now.  It isn't perfect, but it works in a pinch.  If you open a segment on the web version of strava, you can use the list on the left hand side of the leaderboard to select the club or group you want to filter for.  You can then use the drop down menus at the top to further filter the results for "today", "this week", "this month", etc...  depending on what you want.  You have to be on top of it because once you go past the end of that time period, you won't be able to go back to the results from the previous time period, but you can make this work if you are on top of things.  Say you want to challenge everyone in your club to segment "xyz" from 12/1/21 to 12/31/21, all you have to do is make a post to your group telling them what the challenge is and then, when it gets to 12/31/21, sort the leaderboard as I mentioned above and you will have your results.  Maybe take a screenshot of it to save it or otherwise record the results. Again, not perfect, but it does work and we have used it for our club.

  • Hi All strava freaks,

    What do you think of such results of challenges (attached) that we participate. From my point of view, strava staff should ban such cheaters. On the other hand I do not understand  the purpose of such behavior?

    All the best

  • @Andrzej Duks : Ideally, extreme "performances" such as this one would be eliminated by Strava before they even appear. If Strava could do that, then for extreme cases it doesn't really matter whether the activity recording was accidental or deliberate. In this case, I would love to know how someone recorded this accidentally! Did they fly on a hypersonic missile? 

    If it is deliberate, I assume that the person who posted it has edited the data in a recorded activity file, then uploaded it. IMO we can only speculate about why they did it. Trying to prove they can cheat the system? Trying to irritate people? Who knows?

    What bothers me slightly more are the activity posts that are at least credible. When someone runs faster than a world record time, what does Strava do then? I am sure we all see this a lot - in most cases it seems that someone has either posted the wrong activity type, or has done a mixed session (e.g. walked 5K then run 5K and recorded it as a walk), or has forgotten to switch off the recording before they get in their car or on the bus.

    A few months ago Strava said they were trying to do something about all of that, but I don't think it's particularly easy.

    e.g. I see a lot of people who record cycle rides as walks. Sometimes the activity name tells me it was a ride, but the type says it's a walk. Sometimes people have even recgnised that the activity type is wrong, but say they don't know how to change it.  It would be great if the Strava software could detect more of those cases and perhaps make it really easy to change the activity type. It's the sort of thing either a good set of rules or perhaps a well-trained neural net ought to be able to do. Another thing I have seen a lot more recently is people who either have not set up their age correctly or have deliberately set it incorrectly. When I look at, say, Strava's monthly 10K run challenge *by age group* I see quite a few performances that I doubt many, if any, people in my age group could achieve. Again, I think it's probably an accident, but perhaps people like the idea of coming at the top of a list. Any list. These days, the whole business of how people "self-identify" might be a factor, too.

    As for what I think of it, I would rather people just got it right. When they don't, it's not exactly a life-or-death matter but it does make it harder to use Strava to compare performances with others.

  • I would love to see annual challenges that are similar to your monthly ones, e.g. Run 2000 miles in a year. Better, run the year in a year (2022 miles in 2022).
