What's new to Segment Challenge

Virtual races

February 2019

Segment Challenge now allows you to host your own virtual race.

You decide the race distance and type of activity – such as "Virtual 10K Run" – and how long competitors have to record their attempt. Competitors must go out and set their fastest time over that distance in a single activity. Overall position in the leaderboard is based on their fastest time over the race distance.

It's like a real race, except competitors can record their attempt at any time or location.


Activity challenges

January 2019

You can now host your own Strava challenge based on distance, duration, or elevation gain. These are similar to Strava's own challenges, but anyone can create them.

The challenge can be configured to record total activity during the challenge period, or only the longest single activity. You could create a monthly distance challenge, or longest activity in a month.

Activity challenges can include an optional goal to motivate competitors. Athletes who complete the challenge by achieving the goal receive a digital finisher's badge in their trophy case.
