Keep up the great work,

Andrew

  • I would like to set a goal for the entire year.  Like I would to hit 200,000 feet of climbing in 2014.  Watch it tick away through the days and weeks toward my goal.

  • Totally agree.  100 flat miles is a lot different than 100 miles with lots of climbing.  It would be really cool if I could create a goal that was based on some formula that included both miles and feet climbed.  Or suffer points, or...

  • I agree with the Elevation gained. A challenge similar to prove it. Or festive 500. but for climbing meters. A set total elevation goal in a month or 2 weeks ect.  it would inspire the mountain goats to come out and graze more.

  • Yes would be good to add elevation gain goal to the current weekly distance or time goal option. Would be better to not have to choose just one for your weekly goal but have the option of choosing the whole three if you want. You can then set your weekly distance, time and elevation goal.

  • I would love an elevation-based goal as well. While the training log lets you see your weekly achievement, it would be nice to be able to set a goal and easily check your progress. Sometimes it's best to just go out attacking hills and you end up with next to no miles completed but your ascent figure is what you aim for.

  • Add my vote in favor of climbing goals. I care a lot more about vertical than miles or time.

  • Climbing Goals would be awesome.  Even a weekly tracker would be nice.  Please put it up Strava.

  • Weekly and annual goals are great - Elevation gained or climbing, is still not an option however! I want to set two simple goals: 2000 miles and 150,000 ft of climbing - get your act together Strava!

  • Four years already?  Nothing from Strava?  What a huge disappointment.  This is an easy task that will make users happy.

  • @Jason Cauthen 

    'Celebration' of the Four year Anniversary of the start of this thread seem a great idea.

    I shall get myself out of running semi-retirement, strap up my old busted knees and climb 480 metres* on the 10th December, just to honour the event.

    10 metres for every month.

     

    Hows that for an elevation goal :- )

     

     

    *other units of measurement are available.

  • Finally let my premium membership slide as well. They seem more concerned with implementing faux-Facebook features than the actual functional side that made Strava so appealing to begin with.

  • Jamie Nelson I totally agree, I have given up hoping that Strava will listen to their customers on their support page. I use the Elevate for Strava plugin for Chrome browser which was developed purely because Strava CBF doing it themselves. This plugin is great for viewing on a PC, but doesn't help on mobile or Garmin etc, you might find it useful though. I set a yearly goal of 150,000m elevation and can easily keep track of my progress and compare to previous years.

  • I would also love to be able to set elevation goals. Surely this would be pretty easy to implement?

    In fact, elevation is the most important goal for me and my friends - as our training focuses on hill climbing. I would like to use metres (metric) but the option to have either metres or feet would be useful. It would be great if we could set elevation goals and time period (I prefer weekly and monthly) - especially as there is now a Strava hill climbing challenge.

    I've just started using Strava and find it great so far. Thanks! It would be almost perfect if I could set elevation goals ... :-)

  • I would also love to have this feature implemented.

    I'm training for TNF100 and some of my weekly training sessions are more focused on meters climbed rather than distance, so a goal focused on elevation would be awesome!!

  • I agree, an elevation target would be a huge training tool.  Using Strava as an analysis tool I know I can do the miles but need to work on the climbing, a visual target each week would help with the motivation to get off the 'usual' routes and find more hills.

  • Strava - Seeing as many of your 'Challenges' are elevation based, including an elevation goal function would help keep track of progress toward achieving the challenge.  Please add this.

  • unreal that this can't be done.

    also, no way to set a TIME (eg, hours biked) goal for a year or month

    and no way to track monthly or year climbing, time or mileage.

    all these things already exist somewhere in Strava just turn them on -- how hard can that be?

  • Just another voice here supporting the need for elevation based goals. Strava?

  • Strava? Elevation weekly and annual goals? Seems like this is just a little bit of cost to implement. Elevation is already being tallied...

  • Came here to submit this exact request and was disappointed to find that it was created over two years ago and still hasn't been implemented.

    Seems like a fairly easy, straightforward thing, as there are Challenges already capable of tracking your elevation gain. Would love to be able to set a weekly elevation goal.

    One more +1 on the pile.

  • Hey @Elle Anderson - your last post (5 months ago) said you guys were discussing this.  Any update?  I've climbed over 100,000 feet in those 5 months...but might have done more with a weekly goal.

  • Yes please. My training is elevation oriented, please add goal based on elevation rather than time/distance.

  • I am trying to do 1,000,000 by the end of 2016. I tried to go to goals but a power segment would only come up. Is there a way to make the elevation a goal yet?
