This week’s Strava Segment of the Week is part of the TRL Stumptown XC Race #4 course at Pier Park. Rather than make the segment the whole race, it’s just a mile that you’ll actually run twice in the race. It’s got a few short, steep hills, but the most challenging aspect of this segment is that it’s XC, so there’s no “easy going pavement” for you here. The segment is named “Pier Park Wooded Loop” and the current course records are held by Chris Masters Kimbrough at 6:26 (November 2015) and Noah Shutte at 5:09 (October 2018).
