An aerial view of the Graham Oaks Nature Park and Tonquin Trail from greenworkspc.com shows the beauty and variety of the park.

This week's Strava Segment of the Week is Coyote Way (Costa Circle to Tonquin) in Wilsonville, in the Graham Oaks Nature Park and behind Wood Middle School. This isn't a highly popular segment but it looks beautiful, so go check it out and see if you can clock a faster time than our two leaders. The segment is 2.1 km, and has an elevation difference of 13 m between the highest and lowest elevation. This segment has only been run and logged on Strava by 27 people a total of 341 times. We have no new times on our SSOTW from two weeks ago, the Alberta Park Loop; but keep trying!

As of September 8, 2016, the course records for the Coyote Way segment are:

Women’s: Gail Mast from October 2013, 13:08

Men’s:  Kenneth H. from May 2016, 8:33

So, can you beat their times and become the leader of this segment? You have until Thursday, September 22 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.
