Strava Segment & Running Meme of the Week: Willamette East

The Holiday Half is coming up this weekend, so I’ve picked a segment on the course, running back towards the finish along the curve near the University of Portland.

Willamette East” is only 0.81 miles with a slight incline, gaining almost 50 feet. The course records are currently held by Stacy Madden from September 2018 (3:46) and Michael Boyle from November 2017 (3:20).

If you’re on Strava, be sure to join the Run Oregon club; and if you’re not on Strava, you can sign up for the basic plan for free. You can use it to record your runs (and walks and rides) and track progress, as well as personal records and even claim course records.

About Kelly Barten (1033 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.
