I just liked the name of this segment.
“hello hey hi hello” is a half-mile segment with 18 feet of elevation gain on Lakeview Blvd. in Lake Oswego. The start of this segment is on Lakeview Blvd at S. Shore Blvd and continues straight – no road crossings or driveways, as far as I can tell, just a neighborhood trail connector. The segment ends just before the intersection where Summit Drive meets Lakeview Blvd on a curve. If you run to that point, you’ll for sure cover the distance.
As of June 23, 2017, the course records for the “hello hey hi hello” segment are:
Women’s: Allie Keogh from May 2017, 3:24
Men’s: Steven Short from June 2017, 2:33
So, can you beat their times and become the leader of this segment? You have until Thursday, July 14 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 Cathedral Park Trail in North Portland. The previous course records still hold.
