Hood to Coast

Have you ever wanted to run 200 miles with up to 12 of your closest friends....

The 31st annual Hood To Coast Relay is an overnight, long-distance relay race held in the U.S. state of Oregon, annually in late August, traditionally on the Friday and Saturday before the Labor Day weekend. It is one of the longest and largest relays in the world with (12,600 in Hood To Coast Relay, 18,000 total participants, including Portland To Coast Walk Relay and High School Challenge Relay).

The Hood to Coast Video follows four unlikely teams on their epic journey to conquer the world's largest relay race. A 67-year-old heart attack survivor returns to conquer the race that nearly killed her, a family in mourning runs to honor the memory of their beloved, a group of film animators test the limits of their athleticism (or lack thereof), and a group of aging jocks show they still know how to have a good time. A celebration of personal determination and the power of family and friends, HOOD TO COAST proves that you're never too old or too young to attempt the extraordinary.

Not only was it a great watch but it also brought back many memories from last Oct when five of my running buddies and I headed out to do the Colonial 200 Mile Relay (206.8 miles).


I CAN'T wait to do it again.

  1. Thanks for the recommendation! I'm always looking for running movies to watch while I'm on the TM - I will definitely put it on my list.
