Runners and walkers to participate in annual relay
The 35th annual Hood to Coast Relay will be held Friday, Aug. 26, as thousands of runners complete a 200-mile long relay race from Timberline Lodge on Mount Hood to Seaside. Racers begin the first leg of the race at 5:30 a.m. and continue to leave in waves until 4:15 p.m. Walkers participating in the Portland to Coast Relay will also be traveling along the same course, but start the event in Portland near the Hawthorne Bridge.
Runners, walkers and team relay vans travel along Highway 30 through Scappoose and St. Helens during several legs of the race. Drivers should be cautious and aware of athletes on the road.
