Join 12,000 runners and 2,000 support vans as they cover 197 miles from Mt. Hood to the Oregon Coast at the January 11th premiere of “Hood to Coast.” The film follows four teams on their epic journey to finish the World’s Largest Relay Race.

Portland’s Keller Auditorium will host a Red Carpet Premiere, but the documentary will be shown throughout the country. This is a special, one-night only event, so be sure to order your tickets now! Who knows, after seeing it, you may even be inspired to conquer the race, too.

About the Author: Rhiannon West Chamberlain

Rhiannon is a native Oregonian who grew up exploring the nooks and crannies of the Oregon Coast and daydreaming in Powell’s City of Books. She now lives in NE Portland with her husband and her new baby boy and looks forward to teaching him to love Oregon as much as she does. Rhiannon attended both the University of Oregon and Portland State University, where she studied Journalism and Mass Media. She claims to ‘bleed green’ and happily cheers for both the Ducks and the Vikings every chance she gets. In her free time, Rhiannon enjoys sipping Oregon Pinot, finding new restaurants, bargain hunting and trying new recipes – sometimes successfully. She has a child-like enthusiasm for trying new things and rediscovering old ones – such as skee-ball, mini golf, and big slides.

    The relay began in 1982. It was started by Portland architect Bob Foote, who was then president of Oregon Road Runners Club.

    How exciting!
    I have so many friends who love doing the long distance running thing
    A film showing us about such an epic race may help me understand the drive these extraordinary people gave.
    Save me a seat!

    Although I live on the Gulf Coast in Alabama, the Oregon coast is the most breathtaking I’ve seen, and I’ve seen the Atlantic from Maine where I lived, and the Gulf from Texas and Florida but none can compare with the beauty of Oregon. For those that were born there & still live there, you have no idea how lucky you are. I’ve visted your coast in the Fall and Winter but never Spring or Summer. I will be back this spring when I visit my lucky daughter who chose to live in Portland 14 years ago and has never regretted it for one day.

    I ran this twice with a group of co-workers several years ago. It was the most challenging thing I had ever done. I would do this again in a heartbeat if I didn’t have injuries that prevent me from running like that anymore. It is an experience not to be forgotten!
