What are ranks?

Member ranks are a fun component that encourages participation, rewards valuable input, and indicates each athlete’s status in the community. Every athlete in the community has a rank based on their contributions.

Where can I see a list of all the ranks?

The ranks are named after prominent peaks of the world. The first one is Mont Blanc, standing at 15,774 ft (4,807 m), often considered the birthplace of modern mountaineering. Our current highest rank is the eminent Summit of Mount Everest, “the top of the world”, boasting an impressive 29,031 ft (8,848 m) above sea level. It’s a long way to the summit and there are many other peaks along the way to be conquered. We’re cheering on you as you undertake the journey. Here is the current ranking:

How do I level up my rank?

The more you participate, the higher you will climb.

The first 6 ranks are passive ranks. As soon as you create your first post, you will jump over the passive ranks to the first active rank, Mt. Kenya, and then work your way up the ladder from that point forward.

What exactly do I need to do to level up my rank? 

 We don’t want to spoil the fun, so we’ll let you figure this out as you go.

Where is my rank displayed?

Your rank will appear beneath your username on your profile page and in posts you make.


Why do some people have ranks that aren’t on the list?

Some members such as our Strava employees - have custom ranks so that you'll always know who you're interacting with. Community Managers, Strava Admins, Employees, Moderators, Pro and Verified Athletes do not follow the rank ladder, their ranks are entirely different entities.
