Today we have a super-short segment – not even a tenth of a mile! The segment is the High Rocks Bridge Sprint South in Gladstone over the Old 82nd Drive Bridge. It’s been attempted 1,095 times by 226 people as of today. Go check it out and see how quick you can get across the span which bridges the Clackamas River.
Our segment from two weeks ago was the Hillsboro Stadium 800, but there are no new course records, so keep trying.

As of December 15, 2017, the course records for the segment High Rocks Bridge Sprint South are:
Women’s: Angela Lindbo from January 2017, 21 sec

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