What if your own immune system could fight cancer? Researchers at Providence Cancer Center are leading the way nationally and globally in the promising field of immunotherapy. In the lab and at the bedside, Providence researchers are finding new ways to activate a patient’s own immune system to target and eradicate cancer cells while minimizing damage to normal tissue. Scientists are working on exciting immunotherapy discoveries, including: ■ Potential vaccines for breast cancer and lung cancer ■ A novel approach to treat prostate or breast cancer using an OX40 antibody developed at Providence Cancer Center ■ A new treatment for metastatic melanoma, pairing immunotherapy with high-dose radiation New discoveries are made every day. We are working tirelessly to treat, cure and prevent cancer for you and your loved ones.

New discoveries. New treatments. New hope. Learn how research at Providence Cancer Center is helping fight cancer today. Call 503-215-6014 or visit www.ProvidenceOregon.org/cancer.

Message from Rober t Foote. My fight with cancer over the last couple of decades now gives the Hood To Coast and Por tland To Coast Relays an even higher mission than their initial humble beginnings. Treatments that once existed only in the imagination are practiced ever y day at Providence Cancer Center, now considered one of the top cancer research and treatment center s in the United States. The center is a pioneer in immunotherapy, which harnesses the body’s immune system to eradicate cancer. This leading-edge approach to cancer treatment recently was called the scientific “breakthrough of the year.” P rovidence also is home to nationally recognized exper ts in specific tumor types, and its unique patient-centered design cares for patients and their loved ones from diagnosis through recover y. Having a world-class cancer center in our backyard is improving the lives of Oregonians with cancer – and strengthening the health of our communities. I hope each one of you will share in our passion for fundraising by donating to the Providence Cancer Center research program (www.crowdrise.com/HTCPTCRelays) to save potentially millions of lives in the future. Rober t Foote Jr. President and Chairman

Arrive 45 minutes prior to your Start Time to collect these materials and officially check in. CHECK-IN PROCEDURES: 1.

Approval of safety equipment must be secured prior to checking in. You will need to state your Team Number to officials and sign alongside your team name on the CHECK-IN sheet.

The combination of the first three of these is perhaps the most crucial. Some legs are notorious for brutal sun exposure during the day. Legs 13, 16, and 17 where late afternoon walking can be in direct sun, as well as Leg 35, which have little shade and nearly no van support for the majority of the leg. Walkers who push these legs too hard will severely pay for it in their second and legs, ending up stiff, sore and sometimes injured.

Faster team walkers are to be towards the front of this “chute.” Step out of the CHUTE into the EXCHANGE ZONE as your walker approaches. Walkers finishing must exit the exchange zone promptly and follow volunteer instructions. All Spectators MUST remain on the RIGHT SIDE of the road. Walkers are to walk along the left side of the road except as indicated in the Team Handbook (legs #14 through #16). The race course and finish line will officially close Saturday evening at 9:00pm. Any teams still on the course at that time are requested to either discontinue the race, or finish by walking more than one of their walkers at the same time (only if instructed by Race Officials and given a ‘LeapFrog’ to turn in at the Finish). If your team has been honest in supplying race pace times, everyone should finish no later than 9:00 PM. This means some exchanges (33, 34 and 35) may close before 9:00 pm due to scheduling.

robert FOOTE Hood & Portland To Coast Relay Founder

Thirty two years after what is now the largest relay race in the world, Hood & Portland To Coast founder Robert Foote can reflect on his contribution to the running and walking world. We sat down with Robert and asked him to recall a few of his many fond memories and experiences that have brought the race to where it is today. What were people’s initial reactions when you told them about your idea for the Hood To Coast Relay? The general public thought we were crazy, they had never heard of anything so nutty. The eight teams that I recruited, including my own, that first year were guardedly optimistic and excited about the adventure but they had no idea

it was one of the greatest experiences we had ever had and that we had never run as a team and experienced this same feeling of camaraderie since we were on collegiate track teams. I remember sitting in the car thinking that this was too great, this has got to be done up in Portland. The premise of Hood To Coast was that I wanted to be running from the two major Oregon amenities, which are the mountains and the beach, and I wanted to be on all scenic back roads. In the early years before we got so big, we were all on two lane back roads. However, as we grew, we had to start making concessions to start getting onto the larger roads to accommodate for all our traffic.

What has changed the most over the years? I’d say the biggest thing is just the refinement of the course. Exchanges now with ample parking and military like precision of operation run like an efficient working machine. In the old days, we just winged it. If their wasn’t parking at an exchange, we would just park down the street. To the betterment and joy of the runners, everything has gotten really refined and comfortable, back then it wasn’t comfortable.

At times it can be overwhelming and impossible, but if you believe in yourself and work together as a team in fighting cancer, your team being your family, doctors, and support structure. You can’t do it by yourself, you need your team to pull you through this, but with your team, you can do it, you can do anything, nothing is impossible. Hood To Coast/Portland To Coast teaches you that life lesson.

What would surprise people most about the operations of The Relays? I think it is hard to comprehend how many people working year around it takes to put on this event. With our race committee,

After watching the Hood To Coast movie, I think the team R.Bowe story was probably the most inspirational story that I was ever aware of. The fact that this family team was running in memory of their son made it a pretty emotional and amazing story. Additionally, I know that there are hundreds of stories like this in this race where teams run and walk for various charities, fallen friends and family, and other special causes. This is what really makes the race such a special event. Being a cancer survivor, what advice would you give to someone who is battling a form of cancer? After the initial shock of diagnosis of cancer, one needs to collect themselves and decide upon a course of action. I never believed

safety Emergency Procedure

In an emergency, call 911 and locate the Exchange Leader or Radio Operator at the nearest Exchange. Medical care and first aid safety is the responsibility of each team and participant. Each team needs to be prepared to care for the common medical needs of their walker, and have a first aid kit prepared. **You and your teammates MUST write important emergency contact and medical info on the back of your race bibs!

Giving On Course Aid/ Support Absolutely no team members or spectators are allowed to cross busy highways or streets with the purpose of giving aid or support to participants walking along that side of the road! Team vehicles MUST safely cross over to the other side of the road where the walker is, park, and unload support people.

Communications Radio Communication Operators are at most exchange zones along the race course. Ham operator’s primary responsibility is communication for emergencies, but they also help with logistical issues. If you see anyone hurt, please get their race number, exact location, and nature of the emergency, if possible, and let the radio operators know at the next Exchange. They are capable of calling in full emergency medical, police, and fire response. (Radio communications volunteers do not fulfill the normal team volunteer requirement). Radio volunteers register via: https://ham.hoodtocoast.com/

Running At Night Maintain contact with your van within reason along the course. DO NOT follow behind walkers! Vans can pull in a safe area (off of the road)! Don’t obstruct traffic! Participants must wear a reflective vest, front and back LED flashers, and carry a flashlight or wear a headlamp from 6:00 PM through 7:00 AM (through 9:00 AM for reflective vest only) while walking. THIS IS STRICTLY ENFORCED. Teammates/support personnel are highly encouraged to wear a reflective vest and LED flasher when not inside the race vehicle, while on the course or at an exchange (from 6:00PM-9:00AM). Walkers must understand there WON’T be any police promised to protect them from vehicle traffic along the course. Great care must be exercised at all times by walkers and team vehicles. Walkers must face traffic (except Legs 14-16, where they walk on the right side of the road) and obey all traffic laws. A motorcycle patrol group will be on the course (legs 13-35) for safety monitoring. At several exchanges, HTC hires professional traffic flaggers. Obey their signals.

Hydration & First Aid There are not First Aid Stations on the course. There are some long sections of the course in the latter stages where no available water sources exist. BE PREPARED. Midday temperatures may be hot! It’s important to continually hydrate. CARRY LARGE WATER CONTAINERS in your vans to refill bottles. The average team is on the course for 29 hours, so drink plenty of fluids! A person walking should consume 12+ cups a day. Many injuries are related to soft tissue trauma and are effectively treated with ice. Real ice works better than chemical ice packs. Ice should be used with plastic bags and a damp towel over sore, tender, bruised and blistered areas. Any wrapping or taping should only take place after effective ice therapy. Follow guidelines for R.I.C.E. (Rest Ice Compression Elevation).

driver guide

Driving the course requires as much planning as walking the race. Follow these directions to help you plan and handle over 2,000 vans concentrated in the same area during a 36-hour time period.

Drive Course Before The Race Note where all turns are located.

Identify exchanges (and areas where more time will be required). Know the difficult parking areas and plan accordingly. Be aware of where stops can be made to provide walker support. Know where food and restrooms are located. It’s very important. Don’t violate the law by going on private property. Locate gas stations, last fuel stop before Seaside is in St. Helens (Leg 18). Establish places, (other than exchanges), where your team vans can meet. Become aware of areas where vans won’t be in contact with their walker and how to deal effectively. Cell phone coverage may not be available in all areas (particularly legs 18-32).

Areas Restricted To One Van

There are at least two areas on the course that will be restricted to one van per team due to narrow roads with limited space for high concentrations of vans. Between Exch 18 (Columbia Co. Fairgrounds/St. Helens and Intersection of HWY 202 and Old Ranch Road (Leg 23). Map shown in handbook (page 35). Between Olney (Exchange 31) and HWY 101 in Seaside (Leg 36). Map shown in handbook (page 48). There are also shortcut routes listed in the handbook leg maps for Exchanges 6 to 12, and between Exchanges 12 and 13.

Free Towing / Lock-Out Assistance As a service to participants, we’ve contracted with Allbright Towing for FREE towing/ lock out services (Portland - Seaside), -they’re on call for the race! (503) 648-2662 or cell: (971) 645-6182.

Rule Reminders No team members are allowed to cross highways or streets to give aid. Vans must pull over to that side of road and park. No Parking/stopping within 500 feet of an exchange! Don’t drop off teammates near the exchange zone. 30 minute penalty! Vans must obey the No Parking Between Barricades signs and volunteers parking instructions. Exchanges are marked with yellow paint on paved roads and pink flagging along gravel roads.

COMMITMENT TO PORTLAND TO COAST TRAFFIC SAFETY You and your team have the unique opportunity of participating in ‘The Mother of All Relays’ in part because of the local authorities and volunteers who assist in creating a safe relay environment. To keep the roads safe for all 17,400 participants, as well as non-relay vehicles, we annually partner with law enforcement to create a ‘Safety Agreement’ for all teams to abide by. It is mandatory that EVERY PTC TEAM SIGN ONE (1) COPY OF THIS SAFETY AGREEMENT. This agreement must be turned in at the Start Check-In Area. FAILURE TO TURN IN THE SIGNED SAFETY AGREEMENT WILL RESULT IN A TEAM NOT ALLOWED TO START AT THEIR ASSIGNED TIME. Teams and drivers are responsible for their own safety, as well as the safety of others traveling along the relay route. Motorists and relay participants rightfully deserve and appreciate safe roads. Thanks for driving safely!

Remember to fill out (in entirety) the medical info on the back of your race bib! Cut here and turn in lower half to law enforcement representative at Start Check-In Area

Safety Agreement • All state traffic laws shall be obeyed at all times while operating your Team Vehicle. • Violators of any Motor Vehicle laws are subject to ticketing by law enforcement at all times. (PTC is exempt from any responsibility or liability for illegal acts, and will report illegal acts if witnessed). • Team Vehicles must completely pull off to the side of the road when stopping to assist teammates, and not block the path of walkers. (Vehicles are required by law to be over the fog line and not in traffic lanes. Walkers are required to use the shoulders when available; team vans must exit the roadway com pletely to be clear of traffic and racers on the shoulder). • Team Vehicles shall not block the roadway or race course at any time. • Team Vehicles shall not block private residential driveways or roadways. • Team Vehicles shall respect neighborhoods and others along highway and roads. The use of a horn (unless as a reasonable warning) and playing loud music may be unlawful. • Team Vehicles may need to drive slower than the posted speed limit, but shall not impede traffic or follow on roads behind a walker. • Team vehicles shall obey the speed laws at all times. • Open containers of alcoholic beverages are prohibited in any motor vehicle at all times when on a public highway. • Team vehicles shall obey drinking and driving laws at all times. • Team vehicles shall obey littering laws at all times. • Teams agree to use approved restrooms and porta-potties, exclusively at all times. • Except in an emergency, all drivers shall obey Oregon's cell phone law. Avoid distractions -no texting. Use hands-free devices. On behalf of my teammates, I have read the above ‘Safety Agreement’ and concur that our team will abide by all Oregon traffic safety laws and Main Race Rules (page 15-16). Failure to adhere to this agreement could result in my team's disqualification. SIGNATURE or TEAM #: ________________________________________

I always felt I was in really good hands at Providence, and that this was something that we would be able to conquer together.” – Becky Roth, two-time oral cancer survivor, wife, mother and avid runner.
