Create Group or Club Challenges

I would love to be able to set up challenges within groups for the folks that I ride with. Complete with the features that are on the normal Strava challenges such as leaderboards, ranking.

Ability to set up the challenge measurement such as mileage, time, suffer score etc.

I feel like this would really help drive people to ride even harder, especially those that might feel a little overwhelmed by some of the site wide challenges.

  • I am currently looking at using Strava with our company Wellness program and I too am looking to see if creating private challenges is offered.

    This is something that would be very useful corporate wide for businesses to promote and get more participants involved in health and wellness.

  • I feel everyone's pain on this and on NOT being able to upload photos from a computer/desktop. Unfortunately Stava obviously have other priorities. Last year I tried to work out a way to do challenges for our rider group and the local bike shop, it was a huge amount of work, time and labor intensive and I decided that it wasn't worth it. For just under 50 cyclists it was hell BUT if you have, say, a hundred it would be a nightmare. HOWEVER, there are software developers out there who have make it much easier. A fellow in the Netherlands came up with software to links to Strava and makes it easy to setup challenges for distance, segments, whatever and it works great. We tested it out and it worked very well. So, there are solutions out there, they are just NOT being provided by the Strava.

  • I mentioned that a fellow in the Netherlands came up with an excellent app that gives you the ability to create all kinds of challenges in connection with Strava. I have used it and tested it with our Strava group and it works very well, here is the link  http://mtb.hamdentykke.dk/

  • I see Strava has updated the look and feel of the forum, but still haven't implemented this idea...  Anyway, John M - re: the Netherlands based app you mentioned, I have just had a look but wanted to ask - can you create a challenge for an unlimited number of people? Can participants take part even if they live in different states/countries (ie it doesn't have to be based on segments?) and does it give you overall stats ie total distance travelled etc etc.  Really wish Strava would just do this thing, after 3 LOOOONNNNGGGGG years, but perhaps this will do the job in the meantime? Cheers, Kate

  • Feeling frustrated...  Visited Endomondo tonight and set up a challenge in under a minute.  So easy.  Why oh why can't we do the same on Strava??? :(

  • Hi Kate,

    I too wish we would just get it from Strava. But since they haven't done that, I made the page John linked to.

    Anyway, you don't have to add segments. Then it just shows the participant stats, ranked by total distance. There is no restrictions in number of people who can join. 

    Go to the feedback section, and send a message if you have other requirements for doing something with stats/non-segment based challenges.

    Cheers.

  • Does anyone know whether it is possible to customise your club page?  I know I can't do it myself, but I'm wondering whether I could engage a developer to do it for me?  Is this possible?  Does anyone know someone who could do this?  The main thing I want to do is have our club page show leaderboard etc for the current/past month, instead of 'this week/last week' that appears currently.  And also include a combined club total for the current/past month, much like what appears on the global challenges run by strava/sponsered challenges.  If anyone can advise whether it is possible for a 3rd party developer to access the back end of the club page and tweak it I would love to hear from you as I am having no joy from Strava itself in regards to my request.  

    Thank you in advance!

  • Hi Kate - I'm sorry we haven't been able to act on this feature yet. I'm also a fan of having custom club challenges in the future. 

    Although you can't tweak the Strava club page to show monthly data instead of weekly, you can get access to our public API and develop a custom webpage to show the totals you would like (e.g. monthly) much like Mattias and Jens have done. 

    I hope you can find a way!

    Hi Elle,

    Thank you so much for writing back :)  It's reassuring to hear that you are still a fan of this feature, that gives me hope that this idea might still end up happening one day!!

    I also really appreciate you taking the time to answer my questions, and confirm that it isn't possible to get a developer to tweak the club page...  

    It looks like I am going to have to engage a developer to build custom web page for me...  What I want to do is create a reoccurring monthly challenge that includes all activities that family/friends complete on Strava (not just running, riding, swimming and cycling), in support of my sister and her battle with Multiple Sclerosis.  It is a personal project, all coming out of my own pocket, but it is really important to me and I am passionate about making it happen.  I just don't know how.  My main concern is that if I invest time and money into building a website, which I am happy to do, I need to make sure the link to Strava API will remain as is because I couldn't afford to get someone to build a whole new webpage if this link/data changed somewhere along the way.  And please excuse my ignorance, I have no idea how any of this works, just that I have read some comments on other forums and earlier in this one that refers to API 1 and API 2 no longer being available and therefore pages/apps built using them no longer work.  I couldn't afford for that to happen to me...  Can you enlighten/advise?

    Thank you in advance for answering my long and probably stupid questions.  I really appreciate your support and assistance. 

    Kind regards, Kate

  • YES - PLEASE allow us to create club challenges. The more we can get our club members to interact with Strava the  better for you and us...

  • Hi Elle, I have just received an email titled 'We're Betting on Clubs' which made me VERY excited!!!  I have returned to this forum with great anticipation hoping that in the wave of updates to come we will finally receive the ability to create club challenges.  PLEASE say it's true!!!!  I have all fingers and toes crossed while I wait to hear the answer...

    ps - Is the new 'scatterplot' leaderboard, summary of total club activities, distance etc visible now via the web, or only via the new mobile app?  Because I can't seem to see it when I log in via my laptop...

    pps so glad you guys are investing in clubs.  It means a lot.  Thank you.

  • One other thing, slightly off topic, but relevant, esp with Strava committing to the development of clubs...  I know the focus of Strava is on runners and cyclists, and consequently you have the ability to create a club for each of these activities = awesome.  You also have the ability to create a "tri club" which caters for running, cycling and swimming = also awesome.  

    But what I really want to see, is the ability to be able to create a club for the other activities Strava supports.  There already exists an option to create a club under the banner of "other", which you would presume would give you this option, however all it does is create a "tri club" - running, cycling and swimming.

    The ability to be able to create a yoga club, or a skiing club or a walking club would be fantastic and is the missing link for Strava Clubs (along with the ability to create club challenges!).  You could simply add 3 drop down menus under the existing "other" club button allowing the club creator to select up to 3 activities from the existing Strava list.  The activities could then simply be dropped into the existing "tri club" format/structure.  I will create a new topic titled: "Club for 'other' activities" later today, to try and get more traction/attention while club development is underway.  Exciting times for Clubs!! :)

  • How can this still not be done??

    Strava, please explain why you haven't developed this feature.

    Are you not going to, still busy? Please communicate.

    Regards,

    Lambrecht

  • Ironically, we claimed Nike had the challenges feature but Nike just removed that feature with its latest update. No more Nike challenges, I was disappointed but it seems like its not a largely popular feature no matter how much we want it.

  • This is on our roadmap. First up is an integration of our current Challenge Leaderboards into Clubs, so that you can easily access the Challenge ranking within your Club. Next, we plan to work on a feature for Club Admins to set the parameters for their own Club Challenges. 

    Thanks for all your feedback this far.

  • Hi Elle, YAY!  This is so exciting to hear - thank you!!!  I am hoping that during the work on Clubs Strava will review and update the 'catagories' under which clubs can actually be created.  Currently we have the ability to create a 'running club' 'riding club' 'tri club' or 'other club' however if you create a club under the category of 'other' it simply creates a 'tri club' (ie running, riding and swimming) I believe the category of 'OTHER' should either create a club that counts/covers ALL activities, or gives the club creator the option of selecting specific activities from a set list.  As it stands I am not sure what the point of having an option for creating a club under the category of 'other' really is...??  Could you please advise.  I know this is not directly related to the ability to create club challenges, however it is relevant as without the ability to create 'specific activity relevant clubs', or a club that covers ALL activities you are effectively excluding a huge number of clubs/groups/individuals because their activities simply aren't captured. :(  ps I have requested the above via other relevant topics but thought it was worth posting here too.  Cheers.

  • I'm also in favor of this... very much so! I would LOVE to be able to set up a challenge that allows people to capture/count "new-to-rider" trails. Wouldn't it be awesome to have a challenge for people to ride 25 or 50 new-to-them trails during 2017? That would really get people out exploring their world on bikes! Thanks

  • How long will it take?

    I have another point. I would be nice to have the feature for club segments which are only visible for club members.

  • Where exactly is this feature on your roadmap? I see requests for this going back 3 years. My tri team has lots of challenges throughout the year, and we currently have to manage the data in Google spreadsheets. It would be much handier to use simple custom date range and activity type accumulators.

  • Can't believe this request started in 2013, more shocked I only just found it!

    Strava Clubs are presently very redundent as it is just a glorified messageboard that no-one uses.
    I think Strava clubs has a lot of potential.

    One club I am a member of is a Monthly route challenge club on FB. Presently we create a segment for the monthly challenge and then the only purpose the Strava club serves is for the filter option on the segment leader board.

    Its pointless creating an event in the club as it is limited to social rides and the route editor still sucks with stupid bugs.

    I think it would be good if challenges could be created from events, set a time frame and objectives and show a leaderboard.

    This would be a good way for people to create leaderboards for set time frames such as weekly, monthly, Annual, hourly plus make it activity specific, objective specific, segment specific, route specific(update the editor), etc.

    A history log is needed for reviewing the events and a clone/repeat options.

    Would also be good for clubs/members to have an Auto opt-in setting for all events and/or specific challenges.

  • Yes please, at the moment the work around is to ask riders to report there mileage and then it can be checked by going to there activity page however a leaderboard on the club page would be far more useful and exciting.

    Please bring in for 2017 as our club would like to set an annual mileage challenge.
