The creators of the Mother of All Relays and the most popular relay race in the world have officially announced another epic relay. Hood To Coast Washington will span 77 miles through the Evergreen State beginning from Washington’s Hood Canal and ending at the beautiful Pacific Ocean. This one-day, one-van, six-member race features all the sought after aspects of the original Hood To Coast Relay in Oregon. However, some things will be different. No sleeping fields, no major exchanges, no running in the middle of the night, and no need to take Friday off work.
Teams of six will run 77 miles with each participant completing two legs along the 12-leg race course; walking teams of 4-6 will trek 52 miles along an eight-leg course. All legs will feature an electrolyte and water stop, and smooth traffic. Racers will experience the beauty of western Washington as each leg showcases something special, like scenic waterways, the serene forests, and the Pacific Ocean. This event will be capped at 250 teams.
Hood To Coast Washington will be a primarily flat, fast, and friendly journey starting near Lake Isabella State Park, through the Olympic National Forest, along the Chehalis River and Grays Harbor, eventually ending at the state’s best kept secret—the coastal community of Seabrook, located on the Pacific Ocean.
