Just a little extra motivation for those of you running at the Cascade Half/10k this weekend! The Strava Segment of the Week this week is the Cascade Finish, a 3.02-mile segment that is part of the course … the last 3 miles of the half if I’m not mistaken. This race is known for being a pretty fast course, with only mild inclines and declines; and for the start/finish location with gives participants access to the Cascade High School gym to stay warm both before and after the race.
The current record holders for this segment both earned it at last year’s Cascade Half. Kevin Cave, who finished the race last year in 71:10, ran this segment in 16:19, and Casey Hire covered these three miles in 19:05 as part of her eventual finish time of 1:23:40. Cave was the overall male winner of the 2018 race and Hire was the women’s winner. For all of you running the Cascade Half, have a great time! (And give Annette some extra cheers!)
