Editorial Reviews

Heartfelt, funny and inspiring, the documentary HOOD TO COAST follows four very different teams on an epic journey to conquer the world's largest relay race. A 67-year-old heart attack survivor returns to conquer the race that nearly killed her, a family in mourning runs to honor the memory of their beloved, a group of film animators test the limits of their athleticism (or lack thereof), and a group of aging jocks show they still know how to have a good time. 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. Variety called it "a Treat for the sports-minded and sports-phobic alike." Special Features include 95 minutes of Extras: 24 Additional Scenes and 'Making Of' Featurette; "Where Are They Now?" Updates; Director's Commentary Panel Discussion featuring Bart Yasso of Runner's World and Mary Decker Slaney; Original Theatrical Trailers, Training Tips; Shout-Outs from 2008 and 2010; Tons of Footage from the Race Course.

Watched in a theater 6 months ago, and could not wait to get a copy - the documentary is so great, and it's finally available for purchase! It captures the spirit of the race, as well as spirit of people who do this wonderfuly crazy run... You won't regret the purchase.

As a runner who runs for the mental and physical benefits of the sport this documentary spoke to me. It embodies the true emotion and the joy of running - while still showing a team that just did the race to say they did, although they were so not prepared it was comical to them and the audience. A wonderfully done movie and I believe runner and non-runners alike could take something away from watching it.

I could watch this movie over and over....and never get bored with it. Even the music gets my heart pumping. After seeing it in theater, I couldn't wait to finally own a copy. The first few seconds of the movie is one of my favorite parts. I won't spoil it for those who haven't seen it yet, but I will say this, "WHOA!". Most of us have probably felt that way during a race at some point. I am the road kill they speak of so frequently throughout the movie.

This was a great motivating movie that we watched right before we ran Hood to Coast! Runners will love this and identify with this, but non runners might get bored. The movie follows several teams of varying abilities and motivators, so there is broad appeal for different types of runners. However, I felt it spent way too much time on the stories, and way little time on the actual race itself. It could have provided more information on the course and some of the challenges running such an amazing race and for that it fell short for me. But this is no reason not to watch the movie - it was a great experience running this race, and the movie does a decent job of capturing some of it.

Note: I paid full price for this product. I did NOT receive this product at a discounted price in return for my unbiased review

Great film for hardcore runners as well as someone looking for a feel good documentary.

I wouldn't put this in the category of 'must-see' but this is a filler documentary that highlights the positive attributes of an extreme event. This film gives an you a view inside the van of a team of runners completing a nearly 200 mile race from Mt. Hood to the beach of the Pacific Ocean, hence the Hood to Coast title.

There are three teams that are followed and interviewed, which includes pre-race and post race interviews, some of which are very touching while at the other time some are lighthearted and funny.

The most important element is to glean the motivations of these runners as to why they would subject themselves to such torture. As someone who has run a similiar race to Hood to Coast this was the most fascinating part for me.

Ultimately I think you will enjoy this film but don't trip over yourself to watch it.

WOW!
I am a runner and 3X Ironman finisher and lover of all things endurance. This documentary, I feel, gave me the insight and up close view of what this race is probably like. It is funny (Dead Jocks in a box), poignant (They Bowe family/friends), and a little scary/creepy (Heart and Sole) teams. The Laiken team is very funny and one that I wish I could have been a part of.
The documentary takes you through the entire race and interviews the above teams from pre race to post and everything in between. No holds barred!

I can't wait to sign up for the lottery in 2013! Me 11 friends, 2 vans and lots of sweat!

I love all running documentaries. This particular race is crazy and wonderful and I would love to have a go at it. The film documents some really duder elite and aging athletes who, (although are the stars of the race and basically the founding fathers of the damn thing), make my wife cringe, reminding her of the fact that awesome women still have to "run the gauntlet" of mild sexual harassment even amidst a race, even if it's in the guise of fun and games. Thankfully you get to follow a number of teams with different reasons for running and different skill levels. There's no real cathartic climax or tale of redemption or ultimate success, which I find very intriguing. It helps to solidify the notion that this race, as all races, is all in the running. The doing. And the finish line is just the end of the journey, and not at all the goal, ya know?

I LOVE this movie!! This year the HTC celebrated it's 30th year, my husband Tim and I were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to run it this year for the first time. I was so nervous that I wouldn't be able to do it, until I watched this movie. It was inspiring.The teams that were picked for this were perfect! I actually was crying the first time I watched it (I was at home alone with our cat) and my husband thought I was nuts crying about a running movie. Well, after he watched the movie he felt a little different.The relay was one of best things that we have ever done. Being able to do it together made it even more memorable for us.Totally looking forward to doing it next year.Team Heart n Soul were amazing! I was lucky enough to be able to meet Kathy at the Safeway this year, and I got my picture with her. Those ladies assured me that if they could do it, I could do it!! We also loved Team Thunder and Liakaning (sp?). The theory "If you can run 3 miles, you can run 10miles." Is priceless. Whether you are a runner or not, this movie is for everyone!
