I don't use Strava, so I have a question (or more) for those of you who do use Strava.
Does the workout/course length that Strava shows accurately reflect the certified course length, if someone does an accurate Start/Stop when crossing Start and Finish lines?
I ask, as I was thinking about how race directors/event companies have had to change their model during Covid. I have seen a number of "virtual" events, mostly fundraiser (non-competitive) events over the last couple of years. So, I was wondering if companies have used something like Strava to let competitors run on their own course, and use those times for an event.
Does anyone do this now? It may be a way to avoid a Special Event permit, if you have a number of courses identified around town (or a larger area) where people could compete on a particular day. Prizes/recognition can be awarded, in some manner. Or, it may be a was to involve more people in an event, if they didn't all have to show up in one spot for the competition.
Interested to hear how some of you have modified your business to accommodate all the restrictions.
