The Mother of All Relays is ready!

The Providence Hood and Portland To Coast Relay, located in Oregon, is the most popular and largest  running and walking relay race in the world, annually drawing participants from over 40 countries. Known as the Mother of All Relays, the event takes 12-member relay teams 199 miles  running or 130 miles walking from the iconic top of Mount Hood to the beaches of the Pacific Ocean. The event has sold-out for 30 straight years and on lottery opening day for 24 consecutive years.

2022 LOTTERY APPLICATIONS NOW LIVE:

2022 HTC/PTC LOTTERY INFORMATION

The Hood and Portland To Coast lottery application is now live! Teams must fill out the application and mail (yes, snail mail!!) postmarked 10/6/2021 (not 10/5, 10/7!). 

The 2022 Hood and Portland To Coast Relays event will be August 26-27, 2022! 

There is a 36-hour finish time limit, which equates to a pace of 10:00 minutes per mile (6:15 per km) running for Hood To Coast. This is part of several permits to utilize the roads and have all participants off the course by 9:00pm, Saturday August 27, 2022. If your team is close to a 36 hour finish at the beach, your team may be asked by race officials in the latter ¼ of the course to “leap-frog” by having two teammates run/walk simultaneously.

If a team is confirmed as accepted, there are no entry refunds, transfers or deferments, which has been the policy and in effect for 39 years of the Mother of All Relays.

FAQS: 

  • Do I mail the signed Team Captain application? YES, lottery applications should be postmarked on 10/6/21.
  • Does the Hood & Portland To Coast lottery fill? Yes, the Hood & Portland To Coast Relays have filled its team limit (1,050 HTC teams, 400 Portland To Coast Walk teams) for the past 30 years and on Opening Lottery Day for 24 consecutive years! 
  • How will I know if I get a team entry? Teams selected in the lottery are sent a confirmation email in mid-late October. Teams that don’t make it into the lottery will receive an email notifying them in late October, as well as details on how to increase their chances for acceptance in the 2022 event.
