I hear I can link my Strava account?
In settings you are able to connect your Strava account so that races recorded in Forrest automatically appear in your Strava feed. Or you can export specific races manually.
Why is my time/distance different on Strava?
When a race is exported Strava performs its own processing on the recorded location data. This can sometimes result in a different total distance or time.
