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!
