The Hood to Coast (HTC) race, known as “The Mother of All Relays”, is the longest running relay in Oregon and the largest relay in the world, spanning 199 miles, from the top of Mt. Hood to the sandy beaches of the Pacific Ocean in Seaside, Oregon. There are 1,050 teams each year and has reached its capacity for the last 24 years.

Things to Consider When Joining the Team
  • The race consists of 36 legs. Each team has 12 runners and each runner is required to complete three of the 36 Legs. Course Maps
