Hood to Coast Relay
Date: late August
Start location: Mount Hood, OR
Finish location: Seaside, OR
If you’ve heard of any running relay (outside of the Ragnar series), you’ve likely heard of this one. That’s because it’s one of the largest relay races in the entire world. The race, which started in 1982, sees nearly 20,000 people at the startline each year (1,050 teams). Attempted signups top out at over 50,000.
The just about 200-mile course starts in mountainous Mount Hood, OR, and ends at the coast in Portland. Most teams consist of 12 people, and the race has an eight-person minimum.
Not into the full relay? The event organizers also host a shorter walking relay.LEARN MORE
