This week's Strava Segment of the week is in Corvallis, and called "Campus Way - 35th to Covered Bridge". It's a half-mile flat segment with only 9 feet of elevation difference, and it is relatively straight. Starting at 35th and running west on SW Campus Way, the segment ends at the Oak Creek Covered Bridge. It's a pretty popular segment, with 4,905 attempts by 619 people. The segment from two weeks ago was the Linn Ave descent from Holmes to Pearl, in Oregon City. While the men's CR is still held by Jeff Patterson, the women's has a new CR since we posted this segment! Congratulations to Jericho Winter (cool name, btw), who ran the segment in 4:07 to better Robyn Dunlap's previous record of 6:27 from August 2016.

As of November 18, 2016, the course records for the Campus Way – 35th to Covered Bridge are:

Women’s: Liz Anjos from April 2016, 3:31

Men’s: Drew Ibarra from July 2016, 2:45

So, can you beat their times and become the leader of this segment? You have until Thursday, December 2 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 12.

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.
