I think tracking running streaks (or any other form of exercise that is done every day) will be a great addition to Strava.

This is important because:

  • I have been running every day
  • There are at least 4,142 runners who have also been running every day on runeveryday.com.
  • This feature will show me which day of my running streak I am on without having to check it manually.
  • I was inspired by runners like Hellah Sidibe who has been running every day for multiple years. 
  • I want to inspire other runners to run or exercise every day.   

An example of when I needed this feature was today. I wanted to check which day of the streak I am on (Day 576! 😊) to see how close I am to my next milestone. 

Thank you Strava and Happy Holidays!

I'd like to suggest an enhancement to the goals in Strava. While it is great that I can set mileage goals, time goals, and elevations goals, it would be amazing if I could set a frequency goal, such as "Walk twice a week". While it is true that I can view activities by week in the Training Log and in my profile, this doesn't provide the same incentive as a goal. Having a frequency goal would not only push me to be more active, but more consistent from week to week.

Here's your Agile story description and story acceptance criteria:

As a subscriber, I want to set goals by frequency of activity (e.g. walk twice a week, bike 8 times a month), so that I can improve my consistency.

Given the user is a subscriber, when they are trying to set a goal, they should have the option of setting a frequency-based goal to track number of activities over a period of time.

I would love to see this! I have ridden my bike outdoors every day since December of 2015. Today will be day 2578 of my streak. Next month I will pass the 70,000 mile mark without taking a day off. I would love it even more if you could distinguish between my outdoor rides and the indoor virtual rides that most people are doing while I'm outside riding in the freezing rain!

@ChrisBerry Congratulations on 7+ years man! That is awesome and inspirational!

Is there a website for cyclists who do this every day? I think if we can show that there are a significant number of athletes doing a specific form of exercise every day we can get the streak feature for sport type and in general.

@Shant I'm not aware of a website for people who ride every day. Velo Viewer does have a Streak tracking feature but it doesn't provide any way of knowing how many other people have significant streaks going. I would really love to be able to display this info on my profile.

I would love to be able to set goals in Strava that pertain to how many 'active' days I have. This could be the ability to set a goal for how many days I want to log an activity in a week/month/year or how many days I want to log a specific activity (i.e. running) in a specified period of time!

Thought of this while looking at my year in review, which makes note of this count anyway and would love to stretch myself in this way!

I like this idea, I would like it to also have ability to track for 'any workout' (daily exercise), as well as a specific type (run/bike/lift) every day.  

My Garmin Venu tracks streaks for hitting daily step goals - I find it motivating to keep my streak alive, would be great to have similar on Strava.

@CreakyCrank yes 100%! It should track any workout streak and specific workout streak

Great idea. I would love this implemented. Currently I only rely on the Garmin Connect app for frequency based goals.

I support this request. Please also add dates when a goal will be achieved and then the goal gets disabled as completed successfully. 

for instance, when one is training for a major marathon with weekly mileage, the goals feature will come in handy

Great idea!

It would be nice to be able to join predefined streaks (run 1 mile a day; run 3 miles a day; run 1 marathon a week; ride 10 kms a day and so on).

There should be an "active streak" ranking and an "all-time streak" ranking (including retired streaks); both should have a filter option so we are able so see either "all athletes" or just "following".

any chance there is an update on this?  I would love if this got implemented!  “Streaking” is gaining in popularity out there.  I’m a little over 1200 days right now.  Would be super cool to keep track directly on strava

I think it will be great if Strava adds a 365 challenge. 

what is it?

This is a challenge that requires an athlete to stay active for at least 5 minutes everyday.

why is it important?

Tracking an activity or any activity everyday helps create an exercise habit. The challenge badge gives an incentive and a community. Once it becomes a habit it is easier to exercise.

how does it work?

Just like any other challenge. Every activity counts. It doesn’t need to be the same activity. It needs to be done everyday for at least 5 minutes to be. It can start January 1 or whenever an athlete starts a streak. 

Multiple challenge badges:

There could be multiple challenge badges for 100 days, 200 days, 300 days, 365 days every year.

I would like to explain how I came to this specific thread/feature request. I along with a friend am not doing any sports activities. Yesterday I agreed with said friend, that there should be no week without any sports activity. I do not use Strava, but found this feature request by googling for a streak feature. First goal my friend and I agree on is, that we must both have at least 5km of running every week. We would like to check in on each other and keep each other engaged via a Plattform like Strava. 
I understand, that I am not an extreme user or even an athlete. However I hope such a feature can be added in order to proactively challenge new runners to stay active. As an extension I can also imagine Badges for streaks, that you can use to „brag“ in your profile info. Or even like with segments have a leaderboard for streaks in your area. Having the crown for most persistent runner in my area certainly would be motivating, because for me competition is a heavy driver.
