This week’s Strava Segment of the Week is in Eugene, a nice little run on West 18th Ave from just east of Bailey Hill road running east towards Oak Patch Road. The segment’s name is, quite cleverly, “Bailey Hill to Oak Patch,” and it’s a nice half-mile climb of 70 feet. This segment has been attempted only by 39 people for a total of 223 recorded runs.
Our segment from two weeks ago was the first little bit of the ORRC Greenway Trail Trial, named the “Greenway Trail Trial Sprint.” Interestingly enough, the number of people attempting this segment is one less than it was when we posted it, so I must have made a typo, because 58 more attempts were recorded on Strava in the past two weeks. Even so, the old CRs still stand.
As of September 15, 2017, the course records for the Bailey Hill to Oak Patch Segment are:
Women’s: Beth Kruziki from February 2015, 4:06
Men’s: Eric Finan from September 2016, 3:14
So, can you beat their times and become the leader of this segment? You have until Friday, September 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.
