The segment is exactly 1 km, and is a downhill; the average grade is -3%. You’ll lose 39 meters in 1,000 meters, so even though it arcs up for the first half, it’s a noticeable decline.
As of April 26, 2016, the course records are:
Women’s: Mackenzie Madison from September 2015, 4:24
Men’s: Tyler H. from May 2015, 3:33
So, can you beat their times and become the leader of this segment? You have until Thursday, May 12 at noon to try and break the record and see your name in “lights” on Run Oregon! We’ll post a new Segment next Friday at 11, and then starting on May 6, posts will include a new Segment and an update on the one two weeks prior.
