Cassie Negra

Customer Relations Manager


Cassie has over 30 years of customer service and retail experience with a Fortune 50 company, Safeway Inc., and has now been with Hood To Coast / Portland To Coast Relays and Hood To Coast Race Series for nearly five years. Being responsible for maintaining the registration database for 11  events, she is essentially the company’s “Director of First Impressions”.


Cassie’s years of experience in Safeway’s Public Affairs and Government Relations Department makes her entrenched in our local communities and has made her a top customer service professional. She supported the community outreach of 119 stores and over 12,000 employees in Oregon and SW Washington. Her wealth of experience includes supporting the management of other world class events like the LPGA Safeway Classic and Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival.


She currently manages over 19,000 participants’ registration for Hood To Coast / Portland To Coast Relays, a waiting list of another 40,000 hopeful participants, and roughly 15,000 Hood To Coast Race Series participants. In addition to leading the registration process for all events, Cassie leads a team of employees and volunteers that operate all event Packet Pick-Ups and Race-Day Registrations.


Cassie’s favorite things to do include gardening, long road trips, visiting local wineries and spending time with family and friends.
