Would it be possible to add longer walking challenges. For the moment there is only a 50km walking challenge.

It would be nice to also have a 100km and 200km walking challenge (the same as the running challenges).

Thanks for considering this.

Kind Regards.

More walking challenges:

  • 5 km walk
  • 10 km walk
  • 15 km walk
  • etc
  • walk 100 km in a month
  • walk 1000 km in a year
  • walk 3 times a week for x weeks

It not very inclusive to have so few dedicated challenge badges for walking and hiking compared to running. For those of us who cannot run it would be really motivating and rewarding to have a monthly 100km walking/hiking challenge (and even 150km).

There should also be badges for individual walks of 5km, 10km and half-marathon. I am aware that walkers/hikers will currently record the activity as a run and then later change it to a walk after the badge is awarded as this is the only way to receive it. This makes no sense.

I agree, walking is such an accessible sport for everyone. And it can be very motivating to use challenges to get more everyday-exercise.

There should definitely be more challenging walking challenges. 50km in a month isn't really a challenge, less than 2km per day. 

Should be something like this:

  • 100km in a month
  • 250km in a month
  • 500km in a month

Why was the November 2023 walking challenge changed from 50km to 30 km?

Mt. Kenya

There should be more than 1 distance each month, cycling & running do multiple challenges so why not walking. How about some suggestions

Mt. Kenya

Interesting that so many of us feelt he same way and yet the most recent change has been to reduce the 50km to 30km and nothing added or increased. Annoying and not v responsive to feedback. 

Mt. Kenya

Seeing this and being disappointed that it changed from 50 to 30 recently. There goes my 2023 streak..

Mt. Kenya

Yeah, it really sucks. My new years goal for 2023 was to walk 50 Km a month. I was at a 10 month streak and now it’s ruined. I asked customer support why, and they said they couldn’t disclose that information and just to comment on this thread… what a joke. I’ll never buy Strava premium because they don’t consider customer input.

Mt. Kenya

Yes, I was told to comment here. Only to read that these comments go back months and no improvements or responses

December 2023 walking challenge is only 30km again! When will Strava take note of what people want, how hard is it to get more than one walking challenge. Please Strava can we have some action and respond.
