New to Strava?  Welcome!  Our mission is to help people live their best active life.


Our Getting Started with Strava series is designed to help you get the most of your Strava membership and SubscriptionIf you've been tracking activities using another App or platform, read on - in this article, we'll provide some tips for importing your historical activity data into your Strava account.  

The first step is to determine if your activities are located on a platform that you can connect directly to Strava.  If they are, some of these integrations are designed so that at least a portion of your previous activities will sync automatically.  Some examples of these are Garmin and Apple Health

Visit this link for the complete list of available integrations. 


If you still have un-synced historical activities after setting up any available integrations, the second step is to see if you can get your activity files in one of our supported formats. Those are:

  • .fit
  • .tcx
  • .gpx


Save the files to your computer and upload them to Strava by selecting up to 25 files at a time.  View detailed file upload instructions here

If you have a very large number of files (100 or more) the third step is to reach out to Strava Support if you want assistance importing them.  We'll be happy to assist.  




Be sure to subscribe to this series so you don't miss any articles about getting started with Strava.

Hello I have used the Nike Run Club App to track my runs so far, but I am new to Strava.  I have connected the apps, but I don't see a way to import my old runs to Strava.  Is this something possible?

Hello @maximoon 

Thanks for your question.  

At this time the Nike>Strava integration will only support syncing for new activities from Nike Run Club and Nike Training Club apps that are recorded after connecting your account to Strava. There is currently no way to export an activity file of previously recorded activities from the Nike apps. 

You can read more about our new integration here:
