The HOOD TO COAST movie follows four unlikely teams on their epic journey to conquer the world’s largest relay race. A celebration of personal determination and the power of family and friends, HOOD TO COAST proves that you’re never too old or too young to attempt the extraordinary.

The Making of Hood to Coast

In 2007, seasoned filmmaker Christoph Baaden ran HOOD TO COAST for the first time with his producing partner (and wife) Anna – after that he was hooked. The idea was not simply to document the race, but rather to experience an event of epic proportion through the eyes of the people crazy enough to do it.

After adding co-director Marcie Hume to the team and receiving official approval by the race organizers, filming began months before the race, eventually narrowing the cast of characters to four teams: The Novices, The Experts, The Survivor, and The Story of a Healing Family. WATCH VIDEOS of all 4 teams.

Over 100 crew members worked in alternating shifts, covering 197 miles of Oregon wilderness with limited cell phone reception. Each of the four main teams had their vans embedded with microphones and extra lighting, along with a field director, camera and sound operator who all traveled hidden in the trunk! In addition it took 16 more film crews, time-lapse cameras, cranes, and a helicopter – all strategically moving to capture the magic of the event.

The film is now available on 2-Disc DVD and Blu-ray with over 100 minutes of extras. BUY NOW

“Expertly constructed, impressively lensed and surprisingly entertaining…a treat for the sports-minded and sports-phobic alike.” – Variety
