Each year more than 10,000 runners (and walkers) converge in Oregon for “the mother of all relays” — the Hood to Coast and Portland to Coast relay races.
The race begins on Mt. Hood, the 11,000 foot tall volcanic peak outside of Portland, Oregon, and runs for nearly 200 miles down to the Pacific coast. The relay is divided into 36 legs with each team’s 12 runners covering three legs apiece. The first runner of each team descends more than 2,000 feet. Even though it’s all downhill, that much elevation change is seriously hard on the knees. Other portions of the relay are less challenging, but all our Hood To Coast runners maintain rigorous training regimens in the months leading up to the race.
Hood To Coast participants have raised more than $2 million to support cancer research
This year The Ulven Companies name was drawn to participate. The twelve person team, eight of which are employees finished in 31 hours, 51 minutes, and 16 seconds.
This was a great team event! Congratulations to all who participated.
