This was suggested in August of last year, but I haven't seen any further discussion or movement.  Currently, the only way to show elapsed time on something like a run, is to mark it as a "race".  The timing data is already there in the analysis portion of the activity, so it's just a matter of giving the user the option to use that vice "moving time".

How can we make progress on this? it confuses me why Strava insists on displaying my long runs with times under (faster) than the the route CR unless I lie and say that it was a 'race' event.  I don't like either option as it confuses my friends! 'Moving Time' is utterly random as GPS is terrible in certain terrains. I'm often listed as stopped in error which reduces the 'Moving Time' by huge chunks.

Like many runners, I only care about my 'Elapsed Time'. Its relevant to me that it took x hours to complete a trail/route. 'Moving Time' is confusing as I don't know the Strava algorithm which computes if I'm moving/stopped OR satellite availability allowing for GPS accuracy. There are too many variables. Let me have a option (preferably the default option) which removes these variables please.
