Hood to Coast is a special one of a kind event, in fact it’s called the “Mother of all Relays,” and a team of Warn employees takes part each year.

untitledThe relay starts at Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood  and ends in Seaside, Oregon for a total of 199 miles. Each team consists of 12 runners, each runner runs three legs for a total of approximately 16 ½ miles. Each Hood to Coast team consists of two vans with six runners in each van. Team “Extremely Warn” chose to decorate their vans with Warn logos to draw everyone’s attention. The team also wore team shirts to show what “Go Prepared” looks like in any situation.

As always, everyone had a great time and more importantly stayed (mostly) injury free during the race. Running through storm conditions that forced race organizers to change the finish line and cancel celebrations, the Warn team placed 429 out of 1,050 teams, with a time of 30 hours, 27 minutes, 38 seconds.


Team Extremely Warn originated in 1992 and has been sponsored by Warn Industries since 1994. Already, plans are being made for the 2017 team. For additional information check out the Hood to Coast website
