Hi Strava Team,

I think starting a Strava Creators Program can add a ton of value to the Strava subscription

This is important because:

  • Athletes are creators with valuable insider knowledge on races, tips, gear to buy, etc. 
  • An Athlete's Inner Circle is the insider's group of people who have subscribed to an athlete (most likely pros) for this type of knowledge for a monthly fee
  • The Inner Circle can be paid membership club pages or personal pages
  • We follow our favorite pro athletes and creators on Strava because of the content they can provide -- writing, photos, videos, guides, tips, thoughts on races, etc.
  • The problem is most people provide this knowledge on other platforms (IG, YT, TikTok)
  • Everyone on Strava can become a monthly member of an athlete's inner circle (for example, Meb Kflezighi shares his runs publicly, but he can also share posts only to his inner circle that are paying him a monthly fee for insider knowledge and community) 
  • Only Strava subscribers can monetize their Strava pages and gain subs to their Inner Circle

An example of when I would want this feature is to support an up-and-coming athlete who runs the same races I do or a pro athlete who runs the world marathon majors. Eliud Kipchoge is running Boston this year. It would amazing if he had an inner circle where people subscribe to see his workouts, fueling strategy, and tips going into Boston for the first time.

This is a great idea! I know a lot of the athletes that I work with and have a large following would really appreciate this!
