Clubs for "other" Activities

Strava currently allows the creation of Clubs for runners, cyclists and "tri" groups (running, cycling + swimming) which is awesome!!  What is missing is the ability to create a Club that focuses on any of the other activities captured by Strava, ie yoga, skiing etc.

As it stands, when you go to create a new Club you can choose between "running", "cycling" "tri" or "other".  Unfortunately the "other" option does not allow you to create a Club that focuses on your chosen activity, instead it creates a club for running, cycling and swimming (essentially another tri club!).

The ability to be able to create a yoga club, or a skiing club or a walking club etc would be fantastic and is the missing link for Strava Clubs (along with the ability to create club challenges!).  This would allow all athletes to embrace the Club function for their chosen sport = perfect, and much appreciated!  

My proposal is that Strava adds 3 drop down menus to the existing "other" option, allowing the club creator to select up to 3 different activities from the list of activities that Strava currently captures.  The activities could then simply be dropped into the existing "tri club" format/structure.  As far as I can see this would be a very simple addition to make, considering the structure is already in place (it is just adding a few drop down menus) but the impact and feel good factor it would create for users would be huge.

Let us help Strava grow, build us the perfect Club platform and we will be recruiting new users organically on your behalf - a win-win!! 

ps - so excited to hear that you are investing in Clubs, thank you! :)

  • Hiruy, did you ever hear back from Strava?

    I too would also be interested in a multisport club.

  • We have a running Club set up on Strava but are actively encouraging walkers as well. Unfortunately we can't currently include them in our Strava Club as there isn't an option to add walking as well as running. It really would be a great improvement if multiple sports could be added to one Club, not just the three triathlon disciplines. Really hope this is something Strava will work on and implement soon.

  • It would indeed be nice to have more options than just the three triathlon disciplines. A lot of colleagues can't join the club now.

  • I agree with the above, I have joined running clubs to have people say, you don't run you walk, but Strava does not have a option for walkers as club whatever you want to call then for people that walk!!  Should not be that hard to do, copy any of the current Swim, Bike Run and change it to Walk!!!!!

  • I see that people have been asking, literally for years,  for the ability to specify the type of activities a club follows.

    It would be great to create an XC ski group that tracked nordic and roller ski

    (and to the fellow who keeps replying with his own website to almost every request for this STrave club feature... I saw it,  please save your reply.)

  • Allowing clubs to have other specific activity types is now more important than ever since much of the world is in quarantine, doing lots of fitness in living rooms via workout videos.

  • It seems that "Elle," who was going to bring this to the attention of the product development team,  is no longer active.  Her last post is from about two years ago!

  • I would like to count walking as well as running to the club leaderboard.

  • I definitely agree it would be nice to track other activities than just swim, bike, run for clubs.  I'm looking to create a club for my company that is in the health & fitness industry, where we encourage our employees to stay active dong activities they enjoy. We would like to track all types of activities to build contests around even tho its across multiple activities so more people can participate.
