For this week's Strava Segment of the Week, we are heading to the OC ... er, Oregon City. This segment's name is the Arch Bridge Uphill. It's a nice short segment of 0.2 miles (so, less than 400 meters) and it's only been attempted 401 times by 76 people. It is a climb of 54 feet at a nice steady incline, but again, less than 400 meters. We have an update for our SSOTW from two weeks ago! The men's CR for the Shute Chute has been updated to 3:31 by Pete Carleson. He took a full 10 seconds off the previous time on that 0.6-mile segment. The women's CR did not change.

As of September 1, 2016, the course records for the Arch Bridge Uphill 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, September 15 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.

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.
