Strava Segment of the Week: Par for the Course (Eastmoreland Golf Course)

Those of you on the Eastside will like this week's segment, named "Par for the Course." (The first person to log a segment gets to name it.) It's around a portion of the Eastmoreland Golf Course, starting on SE Bybee Blvd and following the course's perimeter until just before SE Woodstock Blvd. The route is 0.7 kilometers and is quite flat, with a gain of only 9 meters. It's popular too - 262 people have logged it on their Strava accounts and it's been tried more than 1,500 times.

As of June 30, 2016, the course records are:

Women’s: Alice Nielsen from January 2016, 3:07

Men’s:  Ruben Galbraith from January 2015, 2:20

So, can you beat their times and become the leader of this segment? You have until Thursday, July 14 at noon to try and break the record and see your name in “lights” on Run Oregon!

The segment from two weeks ago was a 1.8-km stretch of the Hollister Trail in Beaverton. Lopez Lamong and Ginny Figlar Colon still hold the CRs, but more than 150 new attempts were made on this segment in the last two weeks. That’s pretty cool. Good work, friends, keep it up.

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.

I started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because I felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. I also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support LOCAL race organizers. I'm a Creighton Bluejay (undergrad) and an Oregon Duck (Sports Marketing MBA), and I live in Tigard with my husband and two kids. My "real job" is working for an incredibly awesome math textbook company doing marketing and production.
