Featured Running Races on Strava:

From the Explore tab, you can find a list of our currently featured races. Click on a race to open the race page and join. 

On adding a new race:

We currently have an internal system in place to add races periodically using an algorithm based on the race's popularity amongst our athletes. This is reviewed several times a year but at this time we are not able make any promises that we can add other races manually. Please check out our current race list and keep an eye out for new events as they are added. We are constantly working to improve the Strava Races feature and hope to be able to add more races in the future.

  • Please add some Canadian races. Would love to see some of the bigger marathons like Ottawa, Niagara, Toronto, Calgary. Perhaps Around the Bay race. Also, some Triathlons even if its the Ironman series only. Would especially like to see Half Ironman in Boulder, CO & Mont. Tremblant added.

  • I'm sure there are financial reasons not to do this, but it would seem to me that there are already sites that are good at listing races (athlinks/active.com; http://www.runningintheusa.com/), at least in the US, that you could find a way to have an interface with. I think, if you were going to have hundreds of races, you'd need some way to break them down - like Running in the USA does - rather than just a list.

    Since I'm an OCR nut, I'd also like to have races by category - because I'd like to see upcoming Spartans, Tough Mudders, etc., but I'm pretty sure those that are pure road runners don't need them cluttering up their feed.

  • How about showing some love to Canada?!! ;)

    It can't be that hard to add races now you have it all set up, no? It's just templated on your end, surely?

    Specifically, I'd like to see two races in particular added to the list:

    - Portland Half Marathon (and full marathon, of course!)

    - Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon Vancouver (CANADA!!)

  • Dear Strava ;)

    Great feature. I like it.

    On October 19th the 16th Dresden Marathon takes place. Its an offically measured race of marathon and Half-Marathon. Last year they had nearly 6.000 people who registered for both distances. The offical webside is http://www.dresden-marathon.com/index.php?pid=0100. Would be really great if you could add it!

    Keep running!

  • Can't see any of the races we have suggested over the past weeks making it to the site... :-( Seems the feature was a great idea, but a bit too ambitious and difficult to implement... I'll have to keep joining races on Runkeeper till Strava can offer a similar range...

  • Dear Strava,

    I am missing some ... respect !

    We are proposing a lot of races being part of our pleasurable efforts during enjoying running, using your apps/web apps.

    But NO feedback, NO races added.

    Nothing.

    Did we do something wrong ?

    Please let us know

    Thank you.

    PS/ I proposed the major running Marathon & Half Marathon event in Belgium (10.000+). Country to small to be found on the map ?

  • It's very annoying that there isn't any progress in extending the races.

    Most of all requests arn't in that list yet. Not even one (!) German Marathon (what about Frankfurt in Oct. 2014 & in Hamburg Apr. 2015 - both 15.000 runners!)!

  • @Martin Saueur

    Fully agree with you;

    Belgium doesn't seems to exist either: Brussles Marathon & half Marathon (15.000+), Antwerp Marathon & 10 miles (41.000+)

    Many not enough participants (just kidding!)

    I would be good if we could add the race by ourselves.

    That and training plans is holding me from getting premium.

    So i know ... "it's free ... strop arguing !"

    Just a pity not to see any feedback on this

  • Agree with @Martin Saueur and @Frederic Cambie.

    Greece certainly doesn't exist, at least not according to Strava: it is so disappointing that the one Marathon race that inspired the likes of London and Boston and then all others doesn't seem to exist for Strava... Athens marathon reaches its 18,000 runner limit year on year, has a very dedicated following in Greece and internationally and is one of the few things that has been growing and improving in a country struggling with its many problems... 

    What's the point of introducing a potentially brilliant feature like this, if in its implementation you are only going to disappoint the vast majority of your user base?

  • There are strategies that Strava could have implemented that would have taken the workload off them with regard to adding races. They could have allowed anyone to propose a race into an approval section - with a little bit of date/name/location clash detection. And, then required that - for instance - 10 premium users (paid) Kudo'ed it to promote it into the race section. It adds to the benefit of being a premium user and provides a democratic base with little maintenance requirement. It isn't rocket science!

  • Could you add the Antwerp Marathon, April 26 2015, please? 10 Miles event is already added to the list, but the Marathon event isn't.

  • Has anyone working at Strava considered or brought up Christof S.'s idea at a meeting/brainstorm/..?

    This was his idea:

    "There are strategies that Strava could have implemented that would have taken the workload off them with regard to adding races. They could have allowed anyone to propose a race into an approval section - with a little bit of date/name/location clash detection. And, then required that - for instance - 10 premium users (paid) Kudo'ed it to promote it into the race section. It adds to the benefit of being a premium user and provides a democratic base with little maintenance requirement. It isn't rocket science!"

    For example, all Runkeeper users can add races to the Runkeeper website, without having them approved by an admin. If you want to keep control over things, maybe the idea I repeated above could be useful.

    If Strava only wants to put races with 10000+ or so participants to the list, maybe you could communicate this to everyone who wants to add a race instead of keeping them waiting for their race te appear in the list.

    I still think it's a great feature but maybe the implementation could be a bit better.

    Thanks!

  • I like this feature , but it could / must be more powerful :

    * Create an option for bike/cycling races 

    * Include filter for type of bike race (road, mountain bike, down hill, etc)

    * Identify and validate the city where the event start the strava database (just like strava did at user location)

    * Add optional field for sign up date limit

    * with city and sign up date , identify and show for strava users what living close of the events

    * add at user alert settings an option to receive alert of new or with timeout/sign close events (with option to select how close could be ... same city, state, country or entire world)
