Strava Segment of the Week: Sunstone Slog

I can’t say for certain whether the creator of this segment runs with the Sunstone Running Club, but the segment name caught my eye. The Sunstone Slog is a net downhill 0.3-mile stretch of the powerline trail that connects SW Rigert with SW Hart, crossing only one low-traffic road (SW Bridle Hills Drive) in the middle. The segment starts pretty much immediately after you get past Rigert onto the paved path, but ends just short of SW Hart.

This is a nice path and if you haven’t ever run here, you should check it out! This segment has been attempted 1,587 times by 366 people.

As of July 21, 2017, the course records for the Sunstone Slog segment are:

Women’s: Fabiana Dal Cero from March 2015, 2:28

Men’s: Bri Str from June 2016, 2:00

So, can you beat their times and become the leader of this segment? You have until Thursday, August 10 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 named “Birch Street from Dhalias to Territorial” in Canby, 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.
