Add Trail Running as a Run type tag

I want to be able to differentiate road running from trail. I'm flabbergasted that I'm the first to suggest this.

  • Same with MTB vs road cycling. Should have been the first thing they did. Ave trail running speed is never the same as ave road running speed and shouldn't be compared to each other or lumped together.

  • I contacted support about this and they sent me here. So yeah, can we have a 'trail running' tag now?

  • I'm somewhat amazed that this hasn't been implemented yet? How hard can it be?

  • It's almost a year since this comment...and no action?  Come on...this is a trivial activity.  Do it!

  • If it could be a different color in the training log area from race, run, long run, and work out, that would be cool too!

  • So, let's see. There are 5 different ski activities, for example nordic ski vs. cross-country ski, and a lot of other exotic activity types. But somehow trail running is still not differentiated from road running.

  • PLEASE add trail running as a running tag!  Tons of different ski options, but no trail running option!

  • I would like to add possibility to make own additional tags. I would use trail, cross, road for make differences in my workouts.

  • This is ridiculous Strava!  Why don't you just make the field customizable, so people can tag their activities to be whatever they want.  Trail running is huge, but you're leaving us all dangling here because you're not willing to add a little tag?  This would take you guys 5 minutes on the backend, if that!  Just do it already.

  • And when adding Trail Running as a run type keep in mind that there are no stoplights on trails. Please use Elapsed Time for calculating the average pace just like you do for races.

  • Glad to see some passionate voices on this thread! Thanks @Kevin and @Stanislav for chiming in on the discussion. I agree that tagging and categorizing different run types would be hugely helpful. We'll be sure to consider your feedback with future developments.

  • While you are about it. Please tighten up the non auto pause. I find Strava answers auto pauses when climbing steep hills even when I don't want it to autopause.

  • To add to the previous comment, it isn't unusual to hit pace as low as 40-50 minutes/mile when climbing really steep hills. There are two reasons for that. First is the natural slow down due to a technical steep terrain. Second - GPS devices measure horizontal projection of the movement, so, for example, on a 45 degree slope, a GPS would measure about 70% of your actual speed. I don't know what the threshold for "not moving" is but it seems Strava hits it often enough when trail running in mountains.

  • To solve the problem, it would be great if the guys at strava can create a race mode for all activities much like what Garmin allows you to do where your time is your time. No auto pause at all.

  • The Race tag already exists, alongside Long Run.

  • Great. Thanks. And where exactly is that on the iPhone app. Can't find it anywhere.

  • Trail running is an emergent category that needs to be here, however, it should be included as a stand alone with the option of tagging as race, long run, etc. for example I recently competed in a trail run that ascended to 4,000 + feet. The mile times are much different with this type of run. A potential add to this would be to include a time per vertical foot ratio.

  • I would love a trail run feature. But even more important, we need a way to turn off the "moving time". If I ran for 45 minutes, I don't want Strava to say 41 minutes! I did actually run for 45 minutes. Stravas algorithms are so very bad they make this site useless. There is a "race" tag, but the only thing that does is changing the title of the activity. All stats and comparisons are still using the so called moving time. Please please please, give a way turn off moving time. It's just not working.

  • Strava folks...you have asked for feedback, and you have dozens of people here and in other requests asking for a trail running option for running entries.  This is not hard to implement unless your design is just archaic.  What gives?  What are you people doing?  Should we shift our attention to other platforms that listen?

  • I find it ironic that Strava is one of sponsors for Western States 100M, yet it doesn't recognize Trail Running as a sport.

    Hey Strava, I considered becoming a premium member several times, but a complete lack of action or even communication on this and a few other issues is what keeps me from upgrading the service. In over two years that I've been the member I've seen no improvements in features that I care about and some regressions in functionality (like the infamous naming of all activities as morning, lunch, and evening runs). The only, really the only one feature of Strava that still makes it worthwhile is Segments. And even that is in dire need for improvements.

  • That is indeed interesting that Strava sponsors the Western States 100M when no one in that event can use Strava. This as every single activity there will come out all wrong with their so called "moving time" being the only option. I am still using Garmin Connect as at least there I can see the real time I spent on my activity. Strava cannot even get the basic functionality right.. I am surprised not more people making a noise about this, or maybe most have not noticed? Maybe because Strava takes the "total time" from the .fit file, but using their so called "moving time" in all stats/comparison which is all wrong and most people may not have noticed how wrong it is.

  • I agree with Stanislav C. about the elapsed time.  When I first started running, it was on trails.  My speed was so slow that at times Strava thought that I had stopped moving entirely, when in fact, I was running at a walking pace.  I'm just fast enough now that my elapsed and moving times are almost the same.  The problem with the moving vs. elapsed times arises when route times are compared. On the early runs, my elapsed times and moving times were so different, it appeared that I was running much faster than I really was.  As a result, the "PR" for my usual route occurred on a day when I was running particularly slowly!  The real PR for that route is unacknowledged. The most frustrating thing about it is the fact that I cannot edit it.  Maybe one day, I will run that route as fast as Strava thinks I did, but I doubt it. It's a trail, after all.

  • It's amazing that this feature still hasn't been implemented. Like others have mentioned here and in numerous other threads in which people are asking for very basic features, it's this complete lack of response to customer requests that is preventing me from seriously considering a paid membership.
