I think it will be cool if Strava adds a Relay Race Challenge series to get more sprinters on the platform. 

What is it?

For running, the relay race challenge is either 4 x 100m or 4 x 400m for running at a track. 

For swimming, the three standard relays are the 4 × 100 m freestyle relay, 4 × 200 m freestyle relay and 4 × 100 m medley relay.

Why is it important? 

Strava is primarily focused on the solo athlete and longer distances - 1 mile and up in running. Having a 100m/400m x 4 relay race challenge will inspire people to work together as a team and test out their sprinting ability. The relay race is multi-player game that creates a better team dynamic among running club members. The best team wins. 

How does it work?

individuals have to sign up for the challenge and partner up with a team of 4 friends. Then each friend needs to complete a section of the relay in order and select relay race on their type of activity in order for it to count towards the relay race challenge. They should try to do it together on the same track for the most fun, but they can also do a virtual relay race around the world with everyone running 100m or 400m anywhere they can find. They just need to tag virtual relay race and tag their friends.
