2. Not syncing because of incorrect account connection

If you have successfully connected Strava to iRace but still no sync results for your account, there is a very high chance that you have connected the wrong account.

There are 2 types of inaccurate connection: wrong connection of Strava account and wrong connection of iRace account.

In the case of wrong connection of Strava account:


If you click on the Strava icon in your iRace account and it shows another Strava account, it means you have connected the wrong Strava account.

Note: If you use your phone, you need to remove the Strava app from your device, exit all Strava accounts that are logged in on the browser to check.

When you click on the Strava icon but you do not see the correct account you have connected, it means you are connected to the wrong account.


You do exactly the following 7 steps to process it (Note: You must perform these steps directly on the browser, do not click on any links on your device, and the easiest way is do it on your computer.)

Pro tip for you: iRace will take Strava’s avatar as your avatar on iRace after connecting so please change your Avatar on Strava first then make the connection, if iRace also change the correct Avatar you just changed on Strava then that shows you have the correct connection, otherwise you are still on the wrong connection.

Video on how to quickly determine if you have connected the correct account or not

In the case of incorrect connection of iRace account:


When you have registered and updated the information, however, the next time you log in, you do not see the information you updated.

There are many reasons why you might encounter this problem. The most common one is  because you initially signed up for an iRace account by email and then you use the login with Strava, Facebook or Google feature. Signing in with these methods will require iRace to create a new account corresponding to each service you click, so there is a situation where a person uses many different accounts and does not know what account they are using. In this case you can do the following:


  • If your account has never registered for any events before: You can use your connected account to participate in events, just update your account information and connect to Strava
  • If your account has registered for events: Please check the email that you successfully registered for this event to see what is the correct email, then log in with that email correctly and connect to Strava. You can read this article for details:
  • If your account has not registered for the event but you have already synced the results: You need to go to the iRace account that synced the results and delete all the synced activities, then switch to the iRace account you are using and synchronize the results.

3. Not syncing because of choosing the incorrect exercise type

For Strava, only the following types of exercise are recorded on iRace:

  • RUN/WALK: For running tournaments
  • RIDE: For cycling tournaments
  • SWIM: For swimming tournaments

If you choose any set pattern that does not match the ones above, the system will disqualify your result.


If you are in a running race, but you see your activity is on the “Cycling” tab or on your activity history dashboard, that is a sign that you have chosen the wrong type.

Or you can go directly on Strava to see if your activity is cycling or running

Nếu bạn tham gia đạp xe, icon hoạt động phải là hình xe đạp
If you participate in cycling, the activity icon must be a bicycle
Nếu bạn tham gia chạy bộ, icon hoạt động phải là hình chiếc giày
If you participate in running, the activity icon must be a shoe


In case you choose the wrong format, you can correct it by clicking the activity > Edit > Sport (or Type)> and selecting the correct form that corresponds to the event you are participating in.

After you finish editing the activity, go to iRace, find the activity that is in the wrong type and click DELETE to delete it. You continue to click on Sync activities > Strava then enter the activity IDs according to the instructions.

Here is an example of the operation performed

Note: In case your activity type is not RIDE or RUN/WALK, the activity will not appear in the achievement board so you cannot delete it like on the video, please contact iRace for support deleting it for you.

4. Fail to update results due to violating regulation


If you are breaking a rule, the activity will have a question mark (?) next to the activity, just click on it to find out what your reason for the violation is. In case of violation of the rules, your result will not be recognized.

Being shown a question mark means that the activity is violating the rules

In only this case you can address the problem: “Activity is not shown in public”. If you encounter this error, please follow the instructions below to handle it:

5. Not updating results due to connecting to Strava after the tournament has taken place

According to the rules of iRace, if you do not connect Strava before participating in the tournament, the results will only be counted from the time you successfully connected.

That means, if the event takes place on January 1st, but you do not connect until 10:00 on January 10th, the results will only be counted from 10:00 on January 10 onwards, the results from January 1st to 9:59pm on January 10th will be excluded from the results.


You have signed up for the tournament and the tournament is live and you have connected Strava but no results have been recorded.


For this case, it can also be addressed simply by clicking Sync activity > Strava and entering the activity IDs in the blank box.

If you cannot do it, contact iRace for support.

6. Not syncing because the event has not happened yet


Do not record any of your activity even though you are not violating any regulations and have connected the correct Strava account.

This reason is quite common, you need to pay attention to the start time of the tournament as announced.


You need to check when the event starts and do the activities within that time frame, then the results will be synchronized and updated for you.

All tournaments will have an announcement about the time frame as above, if your activities happen out of this time range, the results will not be counted, applied when you register before the tournament takes place.

7. Not syncing because you do not allow iRace permission


During the process of connecting Strava with iRace, if you uncheck the required permissions of iRace, the result will not be synced. You can check in this section: Sync Activity > Strava then enter the Activity ID and then nothing happens or there is a message “An error occurred”.
