Strava Segment of the Week: Meek 41st and Sewell

In addition to sharing a name with one of my favorite bloggers, the Meek Road segment is part of the course for the 2017 Hippie Chick Half Marathon running this weekend. So of course, I thought it would be fun to select this segment for our Strava Segment of the Week.

The segment is 0.6 miles, running from 41st to Sewell on NW Meek Road. It’s flat, too, gaining a mere 15 feet of elevation over this distance.

As of May 11, 2017, the course records for the Meek: 41st and Sewell Segment are:

Women’s: Hayley McKeen from May 2014, 4:07

Men’s: Cesc Guim from August 2015, 3:27

So, can you beat their times and become the leader of this segment? You have until Thursday, May 25 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 There & Back Again, 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.

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.
