Strava Segment of the Week: Cook Park Path

Cook-Park-PathApril is the month of the Go! Race Series brought to us by our friends at Go Beyond Racing, so why not have a segment in Cook Park, where these races run? (Some start at Cook Park, some at Tualatin Community Park.)

The segment is creatively named as “Cook Park Path,” and to get specific the path it’s run on, you really just have to look at the map. It starts under the railroad trestle and runs west towards Cook Park toward the Butterfly Garden, ending at the sharp right where the path veers away from the river. The segment is only 0.3 miles, and pancake-flat.

This segment has been attempted 3,680 times by 695 people thus far.

The Course Records as of April 13, 2017 are:

Women’s: Liz Dooley from July 2015, 1:54

Men’s: Johnnyd 2×4 from July 2016, 1:42

So, can you beat their times and become the leader of this segment? You have until Thursday, April 27 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.

Our segment from two weeks ago was the 9th Avenue Hoyt to Lovejoy, and there are no new CRs as of yet.

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. 

About Author

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.
