THANK YOU FOR THE FUN!
The first virtual Hood and Portland to Coast was a success!
Though the Mother of all Relays couldn’t happen in 2020, the spirit, adventure and camaraderie of you dedicated runners and walkers remained stronger than ever. Well over 10,000 participants made this an event for the record books, while getting active and giving back. Thank you!
All the FUN we had.
Our two week long Hood and Portland to Coast Festival held many different events.. We hosted a Virtual Relay, Scavenger Hunt, as well as opening and closing ceremonies to celebrate our favorite Pacific NW running past time together!
Teams gathered their best running and walking friends and conquered the 199 run distance or the 130 walk distance together. They covered these miles in any legs, order or timeline as long as the distance was completed between August 14th – August 29th. Many teams used our Hood To Coast App to stay connected as they completed the legs for the relay.

We created this portion of the event to bring all of the unique and special parts of Hood and Portland to Coast that we love (and some that we love to hate) straight to our participants still! Teams completed tasks like wearing a team costume, decorating your van, or sleeping outside on the ground to earn points. The three teams with the most points WON a piece of HTC gear from the store of their choice!

We appreciate our community!
We are so thankful for all of the participation in the Hood and Portland to Coast Virtual Festival. We loved the camaraderie we saw and the excitement that we felt. This year many things were put on hold, but we were so happy that the spirit of the HTC/PTC tradition was able to live on!
Onward to 2021!
How to virtually participate during COVID19.
When choosing your route, avoid crowded areas. When running give 6 feet or more of distance between you and others. Run solo, or with housemates only.
Do not go out for a run if you are feeling sick. Wear a mask while running. Avoid touching high traffic surfaces like traffic buttons (use an elbow if needed). Avoid spitting and shooting snot rockets. Wash your hands upon your return home.
Run against traffic so that you can see oncoming cars. Stick to sidewalks. Stay to the right and pass on the left. Stay observant for other pedestrians and vehicles.
