Strava Problems

    Hi all. I've only recently signed up to Strava. All was going well until one watch broke on me. I've synced the new watch to Strava using Garmin Connect. When I did that 3 of the 4 runs I had done since transferred right away over to Strava as well. But one run - the marathon - didn't. I've tried signing in and out and disconnecting and reconnecting Strava to Garmin Connect but the run still hasn't come up. Likely something stupid I've done wrong or not done at all but if anyone has any ideas that could help then please share!

    You can upload an activity or add a manual entry. Have you tried that?

    On the desktop version, top right the orange + button.

    Is that using the website? I'm on the apps. Not that tech savvy!

    You can use tapiriik.com to sync all your historic runs from Garmin to Strava. It also covers other platforms too.

    Yes, from the Garmin website login and you can download the file, save this and then use this to upload to the Strava desktop.

    Is the activity on Garmin Connect?
    If so then:
    1. Open Garmin Connect
    2. Click on the wheel icon
    3. Export to GPX
    4. Save in a location you will remember on your pc
    5. Open Strava
    6. Hover over the + icon and click upload activity
    7. Click file from the left hand menu
    8. Click choose files and navigate to the location you saved your GPX file
    9. Highlight the file and click open / save
