The Strava mobile app currently does not support .gpx export forcing users to use leverage the desktop application as part of that workflow. As a trail runner who travels frequently (without a laptop) and relies on .gpx files for navigation in offline mountain environments, having the ability to export a .gpx file from a route published by a club group run or the route builder would be a powerful feature. Highly recommend adding an option to export .gpx files from the Strava mobile app. Thank you!

This really is a no brainer. I can't understand why it isn't already there! Please add this feature.

Another vote for Beebopbogo. Excellent work around.

For those struggling what to do afterwards that you managed to export the Strava GPX to your Downloads folder on the iPhone, check out the youtube by GPS Training. It shows how to import it into Garmin Connect and send it to your Garmin watch.

Lack of GPX export from Android app is so annoying.

Using Andorid (Samsung) and I either have to use Chrome with Desktop mode and use open in new tab to prevent Chrome from redirecting me to the app or use the computer and transfer the gpx file to the phone.

They want you to pay!
Don't use it, that's how I get around the problem, there are other better and easier to use programs.

Guys, can you add the export feature to the iPhone app? It's really annoying having to go to the web browser just to do this simple task.

Yes please!  mobile app absolutely needs this, it's been such a pain to log into the web client using a mobile phone.  I often need to download GPX files to sync them to a Wahoo computer or to my watch.  We'd appreciate this one!

strava doesn't have turn by turn navigation, and at the same time doesn't allow users to export the route to a turn by turn navigation. They are pushing users to use another plataform altogether, creating the route and navigating there. Its a shame

Agreed ivblumen,  I have done trips recently, walking, running and cycling and I just use other Apps for both planning and execution which have visable and verbal instructions.  Simple.

On spot! This is ridiculous that this is not available yet for this price. This should be standard and not worth begging… Many users do not carry around their laptops / Macs - and the workaround to log in on the portal via browser on the mobile is cumbersome and should not be necessary when having the app installed…
