We need more options for group challenges. 
- fastest rides for various distances
- fastest swims for various distances
- most calories burnt for all activities
- fastest segment time on specific segments

Our club would just like an easy addition of 'active days' as a group challenge option. From there we could select discipline etc but it would be a great addition to the dist, time, vert etc that is already there.

Hi @Soren 

When i create a group challenge on the mobile app I dont get many options. I was hoping you could expand on them and create more.
For example, if i create a 'fastest effort' challenge i only get the options to choose run, virtual run or wheelchair. Can you not add all sports to this? Riding and swimming at the very least. 

Another idea would be to add a challenge to see who burns the most calories in a set time. (eg a month)

This would be amazing. It would help many people enjoy the social platform of Strava to keep active. Well done @MakeStravaGreat

Yes please. I was trying to set up a fastest 1500m swim challenge and was amazed to see it limited to so few sports when Group Goal, Most Activity, and Longest Single Activity seem to allow absolutely all the sports.  Was there some logic to this limit?   


Yes! The current options are fairly limited - and e.g. the calories option would allow including a wide variety of sports while keeping the challenge relatively fair (vs. for example time: 2hrs run means a much higher effort than e.g. 4 hours of skiing on a slope). 

Hoping to see some new challenge types soon! 👍

Can we please get a group challenge option added for the Total calories burnt. Also allow all activities for the challenge.

My group consists of 10 people and we ALL want this. 

It would be soo good to do a monthly challenge with friends where we can compete in any activity we want for the total calories burnt. i could literally walk everyday and be competing with someone thats canoeing and another thats riding for example. It allows us to get really creative.

It would also show who is going the hardest if we all chose to do the same activity type.
