I think it will be cool if Strava adds a new Golden Map type.

What is it? Golden Map Types are golden paths animated in the direction that the athlete traveled on the map so that it shows the way the run started and ended. 

How does it work? This map type is only available when an athlete sets a new PR or is the local legend of a segment in the route. I think it will be cool if the path is also animated so that it shows a medal, laurel wreath, crown or stars traveling in the direction that the athlete ran on the map.  The map is not always available. 

Why is it important? Golden Map Types are limited and based on setting a new PR or LL, so they will be higher in demand. This will motivate athletes to push harder and get a PR, so they can post with a golden map.

Hi Shant, thanks so much for your suggestion. Unfortunately, we are no longer accepting ideas regarding new map polylines. This has been updated in our Ideas Guidelines.
