🎉🎉🎉Sync and Analyze Your Runs Now Available to Everyone! 🎉🎉🎉

Running is now available on TrainerRoad!

Running Key Takeaways

  • Run activities now automatically sync to your TrainerRoad calendar
  • Analyze your runs on our Run Details page
  • Supports runs with power data
  • Automatic association with planned runs in your calendar
  • Available on website, mobile, and desktop apps

How it Works

You can now upload and analyze your running activities on TrainerRoad. Simply connect your Strava or Garmin Connect accounts to TrainerRoad and the work is done automatically for you!

Running Activities on Your TrainerRoad Calendar

All of your running activities that you upload to Strava or Garmin Connect are now visible on your TrainerRoad calendar, including all runs you’ve done in the past.

If you have a running activity scheduled on your calendar, it will automatically be associated the the run activity that is uploaded for that day, matching how this works for cycling activities in TrainerRoad.

Additionally, you can now view your weekly run mileage on your calendar.

Analytics and Running Power Support

You can also drill into your runs and use some of our analytics tools from cycling.

If your run has power on it, we’ll automatically bring it in and display it on your ride detail page where you can analyze every lap of your runs, including pace, power, cadence, heart rate, speed, and more.

TrainerRoad Plans with Runs

Runs are available in the Base, Build, and Specialty Phases of our triathlon plans. To get started with a triathlon plan, use Plan Builder and add a triathlon as your A-Event.

Manually Adding a Planned Run

If you don’t want to follow a triathlon plan but still want to add planned runs to your calendar, you can do that by adding a planned run activity to your calendar.

To do this, go to your calendar, click on the “+” button, and then choose “Other Activities”. From there, choose “Run” in the Event Type drop down.

Why Running?

With today’s release, we’re better supporting our multi-sport athletes, but are there many of them?

This might surprise you, but our athletes have uploaded more than 40,000,000 runs and have racked up enough miles to run around the earth over 8,118 times!

Some interesting run stats:

  • Total runs: 40,980,200
  • Total Distance: 202,170,998mi / 323/473,597km
  • Total Hours: 31,343,083
  • Average Run: 4.93mi (7.89km)

You can see that our athletes run enough for us to support it.

And if you’re the cyclist who does two runs a year during the off season, you’ll have your runs automatically uploaded too! :grinning:

Congrats to the team!

This required a huge amount of work over the last 8-9 months to change our internal database system to handle different types of activities. Our team worked really hard on this and I’m proud of their work!



Instructions were not clear. I just tried running and blew out my knees. What do I do now? Z2?


Tell 10 runners how much better cycling is for health as you age. :smirk:

(This is a joke! :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:)


Trainerroad: We make you faster even during your running injury!


Possibly a circular reference, but here is Ray’s article:


Are there plans to make power based training plans for those of us with those toys?


:rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

That’s actually how I got into triathlon! I was training for a marathon and kept getting injured.

I wanted to do some aerobic training that wouldn’t destroy my knees.


This is great, finally no need any more to add this by hand.

Also, I can finally meaningfully add notes and have a place where on can scroll the run workouts and notes (as for cycling workouts under Career/Past workouts).

Thanks team!

Run TSS calculated from a threshold pace as in TrainingPeaks would be great. But RPE like it is now is already good!

We have a large roadmap and that’s on it, but we also want to get WLV2 and Redlight greenlight out.

So although the vision is there we don’t have the resources to do it as fast as we’d like.


Would you want to type in your threshold pace or have us calculate it based on recent runs?


Is it possible to estimate TSS based on HR for runs? Rather than having to choose RPE for each run? I thought I remember this being possible in Early Access, but can’t seem to find it.

Fantastic! I can’t wait to give it a go when the time comes! Thank you, Nate!


I’d like it to work out my threshold pace on my recent runs, maybe going back 40-60 days, but weighted towards my most recent ones. I know I’d have to do several different distance efforts to maintain a curve over that period… 5 min, 15min, 30min & say 60 min efforts. I do most of my runs with a stryd power pod.

Most of my efforts over that period wouldn’t be at full pace so would it be possible to align it against my HR threshold and to know I was only doing say 85% of my all out. Maybe also use my HR data on the cycling side. Personally I do more intensity on the cycling side.

You could then go into race predictor times… yep I’m getting carried away…

Know its a lot to ask for but I’m sure your team can work something out!

Really great news! Well done TR team!


It’s so easy to get carried away!!

The next milestone is pace PRs…but I bet we’ll add run power PRs to it too.

I could see us having a text box where you could type it in directly, or click a button and have us fill in what we think it is based on your recent training.

That way you could edit it if you want but also have us calculate it if you don’t know what you’re doing. Plus we could auto set it for people and prompt people when we detect a change.


I tried running. It was awful.


No, and we never had that feature. :frowning_face:

Give it another go, and take your cycling shoes off this time…


I like it simple, I definitely would like to type it in myself. I usually know where I’m at. I could be nice if you suggest an estimate for threshold pace, but not a necessity.
