Strava Segment of the Week: West Side Trail Sewage Plant to Bridge in Redmond

I definitely picked this segment because there’s something about running a segment with “Sewage Plant” in its name that makes me chuckle. (I’m soooooo mature.)

West Side Trail Sewage Plant to Bridge is a segment in Redmond, and although it’s elevation profile looks like something out of a horror film, it’s only a gain of 31 feet. It looks crazy because the segment has one decent climb, but the rest of it consists of little rollers. The total length is 0.95 miles, and runs on the west branch of Dry Canyon Trail from the start of the greenway at NW Spruce and ends at NW Maple Ave. Dry Canyon Trail loops around the greenway so it would be a great place to get a few extra miles in.

As of March 23, 2018, the course records of Run Oregon Strava Club members for the West Side Trail Sewage Plant to Bridge are:

Women’s: None recorded from the Run Oregon club yet! The overall leader is Kelsey Swenson from March 2017, 7:40

Men’s: Samuel Schwarz from March 2018, 6:55

Speaking of the Run Oregon Strava Club … we’ve topped 150 members! Every run counts, even those short run like member Erin R., who logged a 1.7-miler this week … shout-out to you for making every mile count. Congrats also go to Diana Wojsznis for climbing 2,543 feet so far this week. If you’re on Strava, be sure to join the Run Oregon club and you might see your name right here on Run Oregon!

About Kelly Barten (884 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.

  1. Kelly, do you think the Strava segment of the week will return for Summer? I’ve enjoyed this feature, though haven’t been able to partake often.

    • Hi Jeff! I plan to keep doing it; I had a work trip to DC, a deadline for the ORRC magazine (I’m the editor), and then a trip to Colorado so the last month or so has been a little hectic. Glad to hear you enjoy it and thank you for commenting!
