How to get Device ID was connected with my account Strava

Because of GPS or some other reason that I don't know about: When I finish 1 activity and start another activity (within 1 minute) the GPS is showing 2 different locations (in the same area is park) so I was suspected by the organizers of using 2 Apple Watches and 2 iPhones to log in with 1 account. How can you check for me: how many phones and how many watches I am using when connecting (syncing) to this 1 account (Log or Device ID…)

I want to prove that I don't cheat and give my best to the competition.

You can try exporting the original files which were used to record each activity. I won't guarantee the device ID is there, but it's worth a try. From the activity page (in Desktop, you can't do this on the app), click the "..." button on the left side next to the edit button and select "Export Original" from the menu.

If it's a .fit file, you can use something like https://www.fitfileviewer.com/ to view it and get the device ID

If it's a GPX or TCX file, the file is plain text and you can open it with any text editor and view it.

I don't get the original problem. Of course someone has two activities when one is stopped and the next ist started and of course they have different starting points if you don't make the effort to start from the same point. Can't you just show these "organizers" that these activities were one after another?

Or you show them that the device ids you have retrieved are the same so both activities were recorded with the same device. But I don't know what that would be good for if they don't even understand the concept of two consecutive activities.

I just download my data from https://www.strava.com/account.
I see login.csv & mobile_device_identifiers.csv
data of mobile_device_identifiers.csv is encryption
Example
Mobile Device ID
255607D2-B3E7-4BDC-9781-D4693825EBF2

How to decryption this mobile device ID?
Many thanks!

Why do you think these are encrypted? IDs can look however the creator want them to. And obviously it's enough if they are the same in both activities.

They think: Has 2 person use 2 watch (same mode watch) + 2 phone.
2 phones log in to 1 Strava account
After person 1 stop first activity, person 2 will start second activity.

That isn't an encrypted value, it's the device ID in UUID (8-4-4-4-12) format - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universally_unique_identifier
