Hi everyone, I use strava to record all my runs but I like uploading into the GRG log book.  For some reason I can't upload the gpx file.  I've used this feature a few times so know that it can be done from different apps.  I've uploaded history from Walkmeter to Strave.  I've recently uploaded from Zombies, run! to Strava (Cool app btw).  But I have never previously uploaded from Strava to another running resource.

 

is it possible to upload from Strava to GRG?

Hi Sue - it should be possible to import a GPX file from anywhere to GRG.  I'll email you directly and if you can send me a copy of the file I'll have a look into why it won't upload.

We managed to get to the bottom of this - it seems like Mac computers may automatically add a ".xml" extension to gpx files when they are downloaded, so the filename ends up being something.gpx.xml instead of something.gpx.  If anyone else is having the same problem uploading gpx files from a Mac to GRG, please check the file extension by selecting the file in the Finder and pressing cmd I to bring up the file inspector.  If the extension is shown as .xml under the Name and Extension section, you can then just delete the .xml part, confirm the change when prompted and the file should then upload OK.
