The events you can choose to add your personal records to your bio isn’t very extensive. I’d love to add 800m and 1000m, which are still in the realm of distance running. Additionally, it would be cool to be able to put cross country times on here (5k XC, 8k XC, 10k XC). 5k and 10k are already options but having an 8k one would be cool too. 3k steeple is another prominent event left out. The list of events seems more ultra-oriented than track-oriented. I just wish there were more options.

Strava feature that would be good, for short events like 100m 200m 300m 400m and 1600m and under I thought that I would be convenient to automatically change the distance unit to meters instead of miles because 200m would be .125 miles which doesn’t always look good when looking at it.

Dear team,

I would love to see 400m, 500m, 800m, 1000m (or 1k), 2000m (or 2k) either on PR estimated time and personalized PR.

Moreover, 400 / 800 / 1k at least seems already present on the strava DB as I regularly see that I beat them on activity medals.

Thank you

This will be great to have on statistics. We can see our shorter distances or create our own. I was looking for 400m and 800m today

Hello, I am new to Strava but would love this option as well. While it would be nice to add both 400m & 800m personal records, there is definitely a strong case for 800m to still be included in "distance" running.


It’s weird that Strava calculates your estimated best 1000m effort, but won’t allow you to enter a PR for it.
