Strava Segment of the Week: Oak Hills Loop

This week’s Segment is a little longer than our usual short distances – the Oak Hills Loop is 2.0 miles that’s surprisingly uphill for a segment with an average grade of 0%.

The segment starts at NW Oak Hills Drive and NW 144th Ave, starting out heading west on NW Oak Hills Drive. That road curves around onto NW Perimeter Drive and then curves into NW 144th Ave. You will cross a number of residential streets but no major intersections.

This segment has been attempted 937 times by 151 people.

As of June 15, 2017, the course records for the Oak Hills Loop segment are:

Women’s: Hayley McKeen from April 2016, 13:12

Men’s: Patrick Reaves from March 2016, 10:37

So, can you beat their times and become the leader of this segment? You have until Thursday, June 29 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 SW Breccia Dr Climb in Beaverton, but the previous course records still hold.

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.
