Strava upload rate surges five times, total uploads surpass two billion


Strava athletes shared more than one billion activities in the last 18 months, surpassing two billion total uploads.

In May of 2017, Strava celebrated its one billionth activity upload eight years after the company’s 2009 founding. Just 18 months later, Strava’s upload pace has increased fivefold. The social network for athletes now sees 20 activities uploaded every second, and adds one million new members every 30 days.

This rapid growth is credited to the impact of three groups on the platform: women, runners, and international athletes.

Since crossing the one billion activity threshold, Strava has seen 33 per cent growth in activities uploaded by women, 21 per cent growth in run activity uploads, and 13 per cent growth in uploads outside of the United States.

Michael Horvath, Strava co-founder and interim CFO, said: “We founded Strava in 2009 and invited our friends to join, hoping the word would spread. The evolution of this community has been astonishing to watch. I’m deeply grateful that so many people from all over the world choose to share their athletic journeys and strive together.”
