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

Pico de Orizaba

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)



Mt. Kenya

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

Mt. Kenya

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! 👍
