Strava Segment of the Week: Reed Lake Loop

To go along with our most recent “Make a Day of It” post about Mojada at Portland Center Stage, today’s Strava Segment of the Week is on the Reed College campus in SE Portland. The “Reed Lake Loop” is a 0.7-mile segment starting near the southeast edge of the lake and running around it counter-clockwise. It’s got a few steep inclines and declines, but nothing major. Check it out in the widget below.

It has been attempted by only 35 people for a total of 126 attempts.

Run Oregon’s Strava Club is growing nicely and is currently at 87 members. Last week, Alejandro Fallas topped the distance leaderboard at 66.1 miles, G RunzMtnz had the longest total running time at 14:58:18 and the most elevation at a whopping 15,219 feet. Join Run Oregon on Strava here!

Our segment from two weeks ago was the Gettman Trail in Newberg, but there are no new CRs to report.

As of November 10, 2017, the course records for the Reed Lake Loop are:

Women’s: Bryn McKillop from June 2017, 6:03

Men’s: Tyler Goforth from August 2017, 5:27

So, can you beat their times and become the leader of this segment? You have until Friday, November 24 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.

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.

We started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. We also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support local race organizers.
