Is there any chance to add a group challenge, based on calories burnt ?

For now theres only group challenge based on distance, elevation, and time.

Would be an amazing upgarde for many of us i think !


Thanks !

Really nobody want a challange by calories burnt ? 

I've created a group challange for my coworkers, and some of them like to ride, some of them like to run, and some of them like to workout, but all of them want to have a rivalry with some kind of equal chances to "win" it to be at the top.

There are also people who cant leave house and still work hard at home and want to compete. Is it so hard just to add one more option to click ? @StravaSupport help :'(

This would be a great feature.

I think this would be an awesome feature... I have the same problem... I have a bunch of friends who are triathletes so some of us are stronger at swimming, some at biking and some at running... it would be amazing to create one singular platform for all of us to compete on... Calories burnt seems to be the best thing... It's the ultra equalizer between all the groups... plus weight lifters could join in... like why does this not exist yet?

Not even for groups... but individualized... similar to how they have set up elevation gain ... a group I belong to did a vert challenge... it was super cool to see the leader board...

Hi !

Group Challenges are a geat feature of Strava. But premium members (like me) wants more goals in group Challenges. Specifically, we want challenges by CALORIES, not only by distance, or duration, or altitude....


This is such a good idea. I was thinking the same thing the other day. Most calories burnt is the perfect way to see who is going the hardest. Please add this strava

I'm in a group where they are doing a challenge for this month, yet I can't run due to an injury, but I can certainly swim and I do, and I have the calories data to import from mi FORM goggles.

This would be so good to make more inclusive challenges, as it is I simply can't participate due to this, and it seems easy enough to develop.


anything new regarding this topic? nothing? 🙂 sadness.. 😢
