This week’s Strava Segment of the Week is along the Columbia River in Vancouver, Wash. Starting near the I-5/Highway 14 interchange on the paved path, this is a 1.5-km segment with basically no elevation gain or loss. It’s been attempted 1,182 times by 319 people.

As of July 21, 2016, the course records are:

Women’s: Katy S. from May 2016, 6:20

Men’s:  Jeffrey Oram from October 2015, 5:08

So, can you beat their times and become the leader of this segment? You have until Thursday, August 4 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, along with an update on the one two weeks prior.

Speaking of, two weeks ago, our SSOTW was “Tabor Top!” Both the men’s and women’s course records still stand, but you can keep trying – it’s a beautiful little run.

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.

We started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. We also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support local race organizers.
