Running Meme and Strava Segment of the Week: Running From Lawyers

In this world of waivers and hearings, I think we could all get a laugh out of a segment called “Running From Lawyers.”

This segment starts out at the bottom of a hill in Tryon Creek State Park on the Lewis & Clark Trail and then runs up, finishing within the park but within sight of the Legal Research Center on the Lewis & Clark Campus. The total distance is 0.35 miles, but rises 201 feet for an average grade of 11%, so be prepared to work for this one. It starts out relatively flat and then — up you go!

Current leaders for this segment are Kacey Manahan from June 2016 (3:49) and Ty James from March 2018 (2:55). If you’ve been looking for a challenging hill to do some repeats on … we found one for you.

From the Run Oregon club, “The Aaron Simpson” has the fastest time for this segment, with a 3:37 at the top of the leaderboard. Excellent work, Aaron!

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.
