Segment pace vs run pace

Lurenmyra
Mt. Kenya

Just wondering why my run pace was 6:55 yet the route/segments of the run all had paces above this? Have attached some photos for reference. More curious than anything.

Can happen when the route you ran doesn't exactly match the segments, e.g. the segment spans the inner curve but you ran the outer curve, or you zigzagged over a straight segment, or you ran over an adjacent path close to the segment. Those extra meters add to your time but not to.the segment, so when you divide your time by the segment length it appears you ran slower.
