It’s that time again. For a third year in a row, Nuun will be forming teams to run the infamous Hood to Coast relay and help hydrate the running masses. During the 197 mile relay from Mt. Hood to the Oregon coast, you’ll run, cheer, sleep (probably not), stay hydrated with Nuun, and have the best weekend of your life. Or at least we think so.
We’re excited to accept 20 women to form 2 teams, and this year, we’re looking for NEW faces to join us. So if you’ve never run Hood to Coast with Nuun before we want to get to know you!
When is it?
Hood to Coast Relay: August 23-24
Other Travel Dates to Keep in Mind: Festivities will start on Wednesday August 21st. For sure, you’ll need to be in Seattle no later than August 22nd . Most runners schedule departure for Sunday August 25th in the afternoon.
What will you be responsible for?
– Bring yourself, your running gear, your sense of adventure
– You are responsible for travel to/from Seattle
What will Nuun provide?
- Airport shuttle to/from Sea Tac airport
- Swag. Lots of swag.
- Fun, but optional activities on Wednesday and Thursday leading up to race day, lodging provided
- Vans for transport to the race start and for the race itself
