Now, if anyone can beat these records, I will be not just impressed, but floored. These are fast. To be fair, Lopez Lomong ran in the 2008 Olympics and has a few national titles on his resume. So I’ll check to see if anyone breaks the top 20 and post that! The route has been attempted 3,999 times (as of June 14) by 387 people; it has a 0% grade and only 12 meters separate it’s highest point from its lowest.
So, can you beat their times and become the leader of this segment? You have until Thursday, June 30 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.
Strava is an online training and racing log for runners and cyclists. The basic account is free and requires you to create a login. There is also a premium version, but in order to run and record routes as described in this post, you do not need to subscribe to their premium service. Note that this is not sponsored by Strava, nor endorsed or supported in any way by Strava. It’s just a fun thing we’re going to do to give some speedy shout-outs to area runners and pose a challenge to those of you willing to take on their segment.
