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.

MOTHER OF ALL RELAYS LOTTERY INFO

The Hood To Coast lottery sold out on opening day, however Portland To Coast Walk & PTC Challenge Run team applications are live! 

The 2022 Hood and Portland To Coast Relays will take place 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 40 years of the Mother of All Relays.
