Running Meme and Strava Segment of the Week: JD-Backstretch Counter Clockwise

This week for our SSOTW we are going to McMinnville and running around some ball fields. Superstar runner Lauren Fleshman holds the women’s CR for this 1.27-mile segment with a 9:22, run in July 2018, and Jerry Nance has the men’s CR with a time of 7:50. It’s got a few little rollers and seems to be a popular spot to run in McMinnville, with more than 760 attempts by 150 people. Check out the JD-Backstretch Counter Clockwise and see if you can fit it in your run schedule!

From the Run Oregon Strava Club, as of today, only ONE of our runners has run this segment so he OWNS the leaderboard. His 11:00 time from December 2017 earns him superstar status in our book. Join the Run Oregon Strava Club if you’re tracking your runs with the app!

About Kelly Barten (1148 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.
