The largest Hood to Coast and Portland to Coast that we will ever be able to record!

We cannot let a year go by without celebrating what walking and running are to us and our community! Even though in person events are postponed, running and walking are not! We may have to physically distance, but that does not mean we have to remain socially distant! We are here to come together and keep the Hood & Portland To Coast traditions we have created over the years ALIVE. With the ability to go virtual – we have the capacity and ‘space’ to make this the largest Hood and Portland To Coast that ever was and ever will be!

Are you ready to be part of it?

EVENTS

All the FUN we will have.

Our two week long Hood and Portland to Coast Festival will have many different events available to you based on your registration. We will be hosting a Virtual Relay, Scavenger Hunt, as well as opening and closing ceremonies to celebrate a favorite Pacific NW running past time together! Your registration with either package covers both of these events.

VIRTUAL RELAY

Gather your best running and walking friends and conquer the 199 run distance or the 130 walk distance together. You can cover these miles in any legs, order or timeline you wish as long as the distance is completed between August 14th – August 29th. Use our Hood To Coast App (download for iPhone/Android on/after Aug 14) to stay connected with your team as you complete your legs for the relay.

There is no required way that you must complete the distance, you do not have to follow the specific legs of the course, as long as the distance is covered between at least 2 and 12 people. If you would like to get as close as possible to the real thing and run the original leg distances, you can find the information in the HTC/PTC handbook.

SCAVENGER HUNT

Bringing 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 you still! Complete tasks on our team checklist like wearing a team costume, decorating your van, or sleeping outside on the ground to earn points. The team with the most points WINS their choice of HTC Merchandise for each member of the team! Your scavenger hunt checklists will be sent to you upon registering for the festival of events! 

Scavenger hunt cards need to be sent to office@htcrelay.com by midnight on August 29th.

SAFETY

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.
