Strava Makes Updates to Virtual Activities & Challenges
SAN FRANCISCO – January 31, 2018 — Strava, the social network for athletes, today announces a new update that will give athletes credit for more. The creators of partner challenges now have the option to allow virtual rides or runs of all types to count toward their challenges on Strava.
Indoor virtual activities are categorized as those that include GPS, distance, elevation, and time data from a simulated route. Strava’s own challenges will continue to count only outdoor run and ride activities towards challenge goals.
