Strava is a social network aimed specifically at runners and cyclists. It allows users to post their activities from their GPS watches and those following them are updated with their achievements. In a similar way to Facebook and Twitter, a user creates a public profile which other users can than follow. There is a growing Roundhay Runners community on Strava. Instead of bombarding your Facebook friends with details of every single run you do, Strava gives you the opportunity to post all activities to a forum where everyone will be interested.

When an activity is posted it allows other users to see the route, pace and speed. There are also options for commenting on runs and giving praise when targets are reached.
