Synopsis

The world's largest relay race - the international phenomena of Hood to Coast - takes place in our own backyard: from Mt. Hood to Seaside, Oregon. You don’t have to be a runner to relate to these four unlikely teams - novices, experts, survivors, and a family healing - as we follow them on their epic journey. Their stories - costumes, wacky props, traditions, and humor - are reminders that no matter who you are, you can push yourself beyond where you thought your limits were. Each year 1,000 teams (12,000 runners) in 2,000 vans cover 197 miles as a relay, put themselves through an arduous physical journey that as an individual would be impossible. 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. Winning isn't everything in Chrisoph Baaden's feature directorial debut; a celebratory look at personal motivation, dedication and attempting the extraordinary.
