Feedback for Running Races

Featured_run_races.jpg

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.

  • I just wanted to point out that your algorithm appears to pick up wrong race data. This weekend the "Course de l'escalade" takes place on 2 December in Geneva, Switzerland. Great that your algorithm found it as it is a very popular race here. However, the Strava race feature shows it as a 5K run but it is 7.2K and the indicated route is totally wrong. It clearly still needs some tweaking.

  • I do not think there is any algorithm, Strava added the races using the data entered by users via the old Google form. Some people were more or less thorough with the data they input at the time.

  • While you are here Elle, you should adjust this one too :)

    https://www.strava.com/running-races/2017-corrida-de-houilles

    Correct name is: Corrida pédestre internationale de Houilles (not Corrida De Houilles)

    Correct starting time is: 2:45 PM (not 2:00 PM)

    The course info is wrong. Check the official site: http://www.corrida-houilles.fr/fr/la-course

    Example of an existing activity on that race:

  • Hi,

    Can you add this race? => http://www.ultrasierranevada.com/

    One of the 7 top trail races in Spain http://www.spainultracup.com/

     

    Feature request: Add a way to add races and let the community vote. You would have a complementary list from which you could weekly pick the top race that would make it to your featured running races. It would make a nice complement to your algorithm.

    Thanks,

     

    Juanjo

  • The last redesign of Strava was a big move forward, to give Strava more a status of a sharing platform like Facebook instead of just be a log data service. But we really need a option to suggest a race – to be more social on Strava. I'll participating on the United Airlines NYC Half 2018 by NYRR, but even that race is not on that list. Even 99% of all professional races in Germany are missing. There isn't also a option to add a official time at a regular data entry – I always have to add it to the headline.

    If you are not willing to invest in this feature, please remove it at all. And don't forget to remove the very prominent „find a race“ button in the siedebar as well.

  • this is such a bizarre way to handle this issue.  i have calculated the odds of somebody clicking this button and finding their particular race on the list at roughly 0.00007345097%.  if you aren't going to take this feature seriously, then just take it off the main page.

  • Ok, the upcoming races list ends in May 2018, and obviously we in Germany don't run races... *cough*

    Being totally selfish, here's three popular races that I will run. Could you please add them?

    1) March 11th, 2018 - Frankfurt Half Marathon http://www.frankfurter-halbmarathon.de/index.php/en/8-halbmarathon 

    2) May 6th, 2018 - Mainz Marathon (> 10000 Runners, including relays) http://www.marathon.mainz.de/index.php

    3) Oct 28th, 2018 - Frankfurt Marathon (> 10000 Runners) https://www.frankfurt-marathon.com/en/ 

    Just a note - whatever your "algorithm" for adding new races is (I bet it's an intern, locked in a room, fed with cold pizza? ;-) *kidding*) - it oughtta improve. It's a nice feature but mostly useless due to missing races.

    Otherwise very happy with Strava (Premium),

    Markus

  • The Boston Marathon doesn't make the algorithm cut? I mean, I've heard it's a little popular. In fact, it might be a good QC check against your algorithm to see if all the World Marathon Majors are on there.

  • I'm running in the Loch Ness Marathon, which is a popular Marathon along Loch Ness to Inverness, Scotland. It's on the 23rd of September 2018. I appreciate that this is a way off, but I was hoping that something was set up because I am severely lacking in running mojo and was hoping for inspiration from a community to help with training.

  • Also, this is the worst feature of your app. Just take it off. It seems if it's not in Orlando or the UK, it doesn't get posted. Horrible. Useless.

  • I don't see many running races in Strava. At the moment (5th February) I can see a whole load in February and March, but then only a handful in April and two in May and nothing beyond that.

    Lots of useful feedback from other runners here on how to add more, so I won't repeat that. This would be a great feature to allow the community to build around the races.

  • Dear Strava, the Bordeaux Marathon is already registered in your featured races:

    https://www.strava.com/running-races/2018-marathon-de-bordeaux-mtropole

    Is it possible to add the Bordeaux Half Marathon held the same day?

    Name: Semi-Marathon de Bordeaux Métropole

    Course route: https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/viewer?mid=11u8zeOMRGRZ26Pw9Zw9mWKgk79U&ll=44.851967525263284%2C-0.5700314500001014&z=13

    (that was last year segment, apparently it changed: https://www.strava.com/segments/14614330)

    Thanks a lot.

  • I gave up submitting races to this as they were never added. This section of the app is by far the most useless. Why is it even there? Do it properly, or get rid of it.

  • I find it strange that such iconic races such as the Comrades Marathon and the Two Oceans Marathons in South Africa are not listed. Comrades Marathon is circa 90km  with +20,000 participants and has been in existence since 1921. This year in 2018 there will be over 23,000 participants. http://www.comrades.com/

  • There are a number of very big races in the UK that are currently missing from the list. It would be very useful to be able to create a race, as long as there is a way of blocking the same race from being added multiple times. Please!

  • No idea why Berlin Marathon isn't a featured race, it was last year and it was really great being able to see what everyone else who had similar goals was doing for training.

  • Please can you add the world Majors! Berlin is in 2 months with Chicago a few weeks later.

    If you are not going to use this feature properly - what is the point?

  • Similar to the filtering on other sections of the site, such as segments, the Races section should have a filter for country. This would enable the list to be broken down into more manageable volumes, perhaps then you can find resources in-country to administrate the list. Advertise volunteer roles for Strava Race Coordinator and I am sure you will get applicants by the truckload. This will increase the quality of the Races section and enable you to make it more central, which I think would really increase the training and social value of your app.
