Configure your own Strava connection

Last Updated: Apr 16, 2021 01:35PM PDT

In order to let your participants connect using Strava you’ll need to follow a few easy steps to create a Strava developer app.

Go to Strava Developers and click the ‘Create & Manage Your app’ button and login with your own Strava account.

Enter the following information on the next page:

  • Application Name: <your event name>
  • Category: Social Motivation
  • Club: -leave empty-
  • Icon: Upload your own icon or download a default one
  • Website: <your website>
  • Application description: Auto-sync your activities with our virtual challenge

Carefully note down the app id and secret that Strava will show you. You’ll need to enter those into EveryChallenge.

Now you can connect this Strava client to your event. This can start from the Integrations menu in the Event Manager section. Click Configure in the Strava Client card to enter the previously saved app id and secret. Make sure no extra spaces are entered.
