A user recently requested on the VeloViewer Run club in Strava to be able to see an evolution of their running best times over the years, so here it is.  With the filtering already available on your Summary page you can also just select a single year to easily view your season bests for each distance too.

Simply scroll down to the History chart on your Summary page and select “Run PBs” and the chart will show a line for each distance you’ve covered (from 400m up to marathon & 50k) with a data point for each new personal best:

Hovering over each point will show the name of run for that PB and clicking on the point will open the run’s Activity Details page.

Update (18th July 2016) – You now also have the option to view these Run PBs by pace rather than time:

Season Bests

Select a year in the filters at the top of the page and this chart (along with all other charts on the page) will be filtered to just that year’s runs. PBs from previous years are ignored to just show the best times for that season:

Top Tip: As with all of the charts on VeloViewer that have multiple data series being displayed you can turn each data series on or off by clicking on the appropriate item in the chart’s legend.  To quickly see a single series’ data (e.g. just the 10k Season Bests shown in the image above) then double click the appropriate legend item.

    The “Hovering over each point will show the name of run for that PB and clicking on the point will open the run’s Activity Details page” bit doesn’t work for me using Pale Moon as browser (v26.3.3 in Windows 7), but is fine in Chrome and Internet Explorer.

    Indeed, the hovering doesn’t seem to work whatever parameter I select in this graph, but it works fine in the other graphs (and tables) on the Summary page.

      Hi Stephen. Does it give you any Javascript errors at all when you experience this issue? Email me the errors and any screenshots if you see some.

    Just found your website after spending time mucking around with .gpx files to work out my own stats – tempted not to bother anymore and shell out for this as you’ve already done most of the stuff I want to do!

    This is awesome but just a thought – it would be cool to be able to choose to have pace on the y-axis instead of overall time for easier comparison between distances 🙂

        So awesome! I was happy to sign up to pro today and check it out and realise you’d already incorporated my idle thought two days after I mentioned it!
