Each year, 12,000 runners make the journey from the top of Oregon's tallest mountain, Mt. Hood, 197 miles to the Pacific Ocean in Seaside, Oregon.
HOOD TO COAST is an inspiring new documentary that follows four teams with various levels of athletic ability on their epic journey to conquer the world’s largest relay race. Some run to test their personal limits, some to overcome personal obstacles, and others leap in blindly looking for a way to shake up a complacent life. As we follow these four teams, we realize that winning isn’t everything in a film that takes a celebratory look at personal motivation and attempting the extraordinary.
