Hood to Coast: Longest Relay Race in the World!

This weekend we went out for a little journey. 12 people plus 2 van drivers completed the world's longest relay race: 179 miles. Legs are sore but everyone is doing okay. Yesterday I was saying 'never again', today i'm saying 'can't wait til next year!'. :As the largest running relay race in the world, The Hood To Coast Relay stretches 197 miles from the top of Oregon's majestic Mt. Hood down to the beautiful Pacific Ocean in Seaside, Oregon. Over 12,000 runners and 4,800 walkers in Portland to Coast, share in the experience of this annual event now in its 26th year! Come join the excitement this August 24th and 25th, 2007!

Teams from around the world come to participate in the Nike Hood To Coast Relay, Portland To Coast Walk and Portland To Coast High School Challenge. Each race has a range of participants, from serious runners and walkers to teams just out to enjoy the adventure, (and maybe out-do one another in van and oufit decor!).
