Strava Segment of the Week: South Park Climb (downtown Portland)

It’s always fun to run through the Park Blocks, so this week’s Strava Segment runs there!

The half-mile “South Park Cimb” segment runs from SW Salmon to SW College Streets, always on the eastern sidewalk of the park. It’s a slight incline and you will have to watch for cars, so this segment is best attempted on an early weekend morning.

The current leaders are Troy Bash and Melissa Cox, with times of 3:13 and 3:56, respectively.

Run Oregon’s Strava Club is currently at 213 members! Be sure to tell your friends about it so they can join too. When we get to 500 members we’ll do a giveaway of some sort … like a race entry!

About Kelly Barten (1149 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.
