Strava Segment of the Week: Speed Check Between Lincoln and Pearl (Eugene)

This week, our Strava Segment of the Week is in Eugene. It’s an 0.3-mile straight stretch between – you guessed it – Lincoln and Pearl, running east. It’s flat and crosses only two minor streets. As of today, it’s been attempted 273 times by only 64 people.

Remember, Run Oregon has created its own Strava “Club” (free to join, of course). Our little group has grown to 78 members, led last week by Marc Larson in total running time (12:07:47), InfraRunner L in climbing (6,220 feet), and Alejandro Fallas in mileage (63.4 miles). Join Run Oregon on Strava here!

As of December 8, 2017, the course records for the segment Speed Check Between Lincoln and Pearl are:

Women’s: Am Mo from May 2017, 2:00

Men’s: Ed Weeks from March 2017, 2:06

So, can you beat their times and become the leader of this segment? You have until Friday, December 22 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. 

About Kelly Barten (991 Articles)
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.
