WELCOME TO THE PORTLAND TO COAST WALK RELAY! Welcome to the 23rd annual Providence Portland To Coast Walk Relay! A sincere thank you to Providence, our enthusiastic title sponsor in their first of hopefully many as title of the largest and best walk relay in the world! Also welcome renowned Providence Cancer Center, our exclusive fundraising partner! The 2014 race sold out a month after “Opening Day” of registration. Please read the handbook thoroughly to prepare for race day! • The ALL ONLINE MANDATORY VOLUNTEER TRAINING is a comprehensive online quiz, where team volunteers take the mandatory training in the comfort of their home and on their own time. See page 16 and visit http://volunteer.hoodtocoast.com for more info! • Be Visible! From 6:00pm through 7:00am all walkers must wear one small front and back LED flasher, a reflective vest, and flashlight or headlight. Reflective vests should be worn through 9:00am only. • Hear Your Surroundings! The use of headphones or audio amplification devices (worn on the head) while walking in PTC is not allowed and enforced as grounds for team disqualification (see page 12). • Safe Driving. We continue to partner with Oregon State Law Enforcement for the PTC Safety Agreement (pg 59) for safe relay driving. It's required to read and submit a signed copy for proper team Check-In at the Start. And remember, all teammates must write their contact/medical info in the space provided on back of their race bib! • Fundraise to fight cancer! Our sincerest thanks to 2014 participants, sponsors, and staff who fundraised over $800,000 to support the latest research in finding a cure for cancer, as well as patient advocacy programs. Go to www.htccharity.com to get you & your team started fundraising! Let's all do our part to find a cure for cancer. • Cut N' Walk: simple 'leg' directions on pg 18-19 to cut out and carry in your hand or pocket while you walk! • Finish Beach Party! Reward yourself with the huge, newly redesigned finish party on the beach in Seaside! Team pictures, food, beer and wine garden, vendor samples and live music/dancing will keep those endorphins going long after you're done walking! We hope your experience in the 23rd Providence Portland To Coast Walk Relay is as enjoyable as it is for us to put on this special event! Thanks to the dedicated PTC Staff, Race Committee, sponsors and 3,600 volunteers who work to make this incredible experience possible! Enjoy the race, camaraderie and laughs along the way. We’ll see you at the beach!

Present team safety equipment at the Equipment Check-in Area for inspection (reflective vest, flashlight or headlamp, and two LED flashers). Your team will then be issued a Race Wrist Wrap.

Approval of safety equipment must be secured prior to checking in. State your Team Number to officials and sign alongside your team name on the CHECK-IN sheet. Any team member can check the team in, not necessarily the Team Captain. 3.

Do not attempt to start before your assigned start time!

4. Team Record: Each team can record their individual leg times as well as the accumulated walking time at the completion of each leg for posterity. These sheets DO NOT NEED to be turned in at the end of the race. (Available on page 69).

9. Portland To Coast Walk Finish

The Finish is located on the beach, just north of the turnaround of Broadway Avenue in Seaside, Oregon. Be aware, traffic and parking are very congested at the Finish in Seaside. Use of the free parking shuttle is highly encouraged! (Map included on page 61, and at www.hoodtocoast.com/race-information) Team members often walk across the Finish Line with their anchor walker who is officially finishing the race. If your team chooses to do so, make sure your official leg 36 (anchor) walker leads your team to the Finish Line. This walker will be the one who is credited with an official finish. Note: the Finisher will be walking down the Promenade along the seawall to a ramp which slopes down onto the beach. This is near Oceanway Avenue. A special team holding area will allow your team to meet up as the last walker comes down the ramp. Listen for announcements. UPDATED FINISH RESULTS: Results will be produced as often as possible throughout Saturday. Final results will also be posted at www.portlandtocoastwalk.com/results. If for some reason, you do not agree with the final results, please file a report prior to 4:00pm on Saturday to the designated Penalties Table.

2013 HOOD TO COAST RELAY FINISH SITE PLAN

FINISHER MEDALS: Will be given to each qualifying team as the finishing walker crosses the Finish Line.

TEAM BUILDING Every person walking on race day MUST be officially registered, or your team will be disqualified! Additions/substitutions can be submitted via online roster (http://register.hoodtocoast.com) up until race day. Race day Adds/Subs must be filled out on forms provided at the Start ($25 late fee).

Recruit Teammates!

Connect with walkers looking for a team, or teams looking for walkers by visiting

w w w. h t c r e l ay f o r u m . c o m ! C h a t w i t h fe l l o w p a r t i c i p a n t s , a s k q u e s t i o n s a n d p o s t t o r e cruit other walkers! Discussions range from teams looking for additonal walkers to tips/advice and logistics.

Start Times will be determined according to team member pace times submitted on race rosters. These times should reflect the pace time each person would expect to walk on race day if they were in a typical 5k, 10k, Half Marathon or other race. These pace times are calculated into the predicted pace each walker should average throughout the race, including a specific deterioration factor over two legs. Your team's "Anticipated Finish Time" will be indicated on the 'Team Roster' page within your Race Packet. The seeding procedure spreads waves of slow, medium and fast teams throughout the race. PTC Team Time: The average walk team finishes in approximately 28.5 hours. Don't underestimate how fast you will actually walk! Team additions/substitutions should reflect any change(s). Special Seeding Requests for starting times will NOT be accepted. Teams that choose to violate their pre-assigned start times will be disqualified and subject to suspension from participating in future events.

Team Seeding

The seeding system composes teams with similar anticipated finish times, and creates a projected deterioration factor from times submitted. All team members should submit and resubmit pace times which truly reflect their ability. Teams are not simply seeded slowest to fastest! Inaccurate pace times can result in issues ranging from safety and congestion, to volunteer and equipment support issues for participants. If teams do not submit accurate and honest pace times and finish 2.5 hours ahead of their anticipated finish time, they risk being disqualified.

2014 PROVIDENCE PORTLAND TO COAST WALK RELAY HANDBOOK


TEAM BUILDING cont. All teams are to walk their members in rotating legs and in the same sequence of rotation throughout the race. Walker on leg #13 would thus walk legs #13 and #25. When determining the who will walk each leg, (besides distance and leg rating), Captains should consider the following variables: · · · · · · ·

The time of day walkers will encounter each leg The leg's exposure to sun and/or wind Variable weather Walker ability Walker familiarity with the area Whether there is any van support on the leg Walker willingness to walk on a gravel (and potentially dusty) road

The combination of the first three of these is perhaps the most crucial. Some legs are notorious for brutal sun exposure on walkers during the day. Several examples are Legs 16, 17, and 35, where walking can be in direct sun with little shade.

Walker Substitution No participant may drop out of the race solely for the purpose of the team substituting a faster walker in their place. If a walker is forced out due to injury or illness, they MAY NOT be reinstated into the team lineup. The team must finish the event with the remaining walkers moving forward in the same sequence. No alternates may be added once the team has started. (60 min. penalty if involved in improper substitution).

Substitution Process Substitution Process for Teams (other than Mixed Divisions):

If a walker drops out due to injury or illness during a leg and isn't able to walk to the next exchange, the next walker in rotation may take the wrist wrap and continue to the end of that leg. The next leg must be walked by the next walker in rotation. No more than one substitution is permitted in a single leg.

Substitution Process for Mixed Divisions:

If a walker on a Mixed Division team becomes injured/ill and drops out during the leg, the above applies with the addition that the replacement walker must be of the same gender. If a minimum of (17) legs are not completed by females the team will automatically be reclassified into the Men's Division. EXAMPLE (presume injury to female #1 0n leg #16): Start Rotation Position Gender Leg 13 M-1 Leg 14 M-2 Leg 15 M-3 Leg 16 F-1 Leg 17 M-4 Leg 18 F-2 Leg 19 F-3 Leg 20 M-5 Leg 21 M-6 Leg 22 F-4

Revised Rotation Position Gender Leg 13 M-1 Leg 14 M-2 Leg 15 M-3 Leg 16 F-2 Leg 17 M-4 Leg 18 F-3 Leg 19 F-4 Leg 20 M-5 Leg 21 M-6 Leg 22 F-5

WALKER OFF COURSE: All teams are to monitor and guide their teammates through the course. If a wrong turn is

made, the walker must return to the course on foot to the point on the course where the error occurred and resume the race. Do not mark turns on the roads/course! Teams are responsible for educating teammates on the course route/directions!

EXCHANGES are marked in yellow paint on paved roads, and pink flagging along gravel roads (yes, this course does have gravel stretches (dust); so bring bandanas/painter’s masks, or just grin and bear it)!

WAITING WALKERS who will walk the next leg MUST line up single file (after warming up) along the exchange zoneshoulder of the road behind the EXCHANGE POINT. 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. ONLY WALKERS presently preparing to walk are allowed on the LEFT side of the exchange roadway. 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 - #16).

Parking and stopping near exchange is not permitted within 500 feet prior to an exchange.

Vans must obey 'No Parking Between Barricades' signs, and be sure to not stop or park on or near the white lines on roadways!

No drop off near Exchange Zone. Follow volunteer directions for parking areas.

Navigating the Course. It's highly recommended to drive the course in advance of race weekend. See "Drivers Guide" in handbook or at bottom of: www.hoodtocoast.com/course-maps for driving instructions.

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). Teams cannot walk legs concurrently unless instructed by RACE OFFICIAL and given sticker for their log sheet. All teams are seeded to finish before the course officially closes. If your team has been honest in supplying 10K times, everyone should finish no later than 9:00 PM. THIS MEANS THAT SOME EXCHANGES (33, 34 AND 35) MAY CLOSE BEFORE 9:00 PM due to scheduling. THESE EXCHANGES SHOULD DO SO IF YOUR TEAM IS TO FINISH BY 9:00 PM.

SAFETY In emergency, call 911 and locate Exchange Leader or Radio Operator at 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!

Communications:

Radio Communication Operators are at most exchange points along the race course. Ham operator's primary responsibility is communication for emergencies, but they also help with logistical issues. They are positioned near the exchange zone. If you see anyone hurt, please get their race number, exact location, and nature of the emergency, if possible, and let the radio operator 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/

Giving Aid and Support along the Course: 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. Walking 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/PTC hires professional traffic flaggers. Obey their signals.

Non-use of headphones or audio amplification while participating is strictly enforced, however, music devices with speakers below the head are allowed. Headphones severely impede

the ability to hear surroundings and are a major safety hazard. Teams are disqualified if a teammate doesn't adhere to this policy.

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). EVERY TEAM MEMBER MUST HAVE THEIR CONTACT/MEDICAL INFO COMPLETED ON THE BACK OF THEIR RACE BIB! Oregon law states that no open containers of alcohol are permitted within vehicles. Save the celebration for the FINISH beach party! 14

VOLUNTEER INFORMATION The race wouldn't be possible without support from 3,600 dedicated volunteers along the course! The provision of three (3) volunteers ensures that all participants have a well supported and SAFE event. THANK YOU!

Requirements: EVERY TEAM WITH ONE OR MORE LOCAL MEMBERS MUST provide three (3) race volunteers. See the map boundaries at www.hoodtocoast. com/zip-code-check Vo l u n t e e r s m u s t b e a t l e a s t 1 8 Y E A R S O F A G E o r o l d er, and perform the assigned duties. No children or dogs allowed! Assertive volunteers who are willing to work are needed! Volunteering is approximately 4-5 hours. All jobs are on the COURSE, START or FINISH areas. Volunteers must bring a flashlight if shift is at night/early morning.

Volunteer

Registration: Starting June 16, Team Captains can log onto the Team Roster (http://register.hoodtocoast.com) to register volunteers. Each volunteer must have a unique email address. You can send your volunteer(s) an email invitation to register, take/pass online training, and subsequently choose a Volunteer Job from those shown as still available. Once a position is filled, the job listing will disappear. Volunteers assignments are FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED so register early! All volunteers must have passed online volunteer training and confirmed a job selection no later than Aug 16, 2014 or the team will be disqualified. The assigned volunteer job will be displayed within the Online Roster.

Exchange Leaders Only: contact Volunteer Director ross@htcrelay.com for these assignments (must meet in person at Providence Park 1:00pm, follow signs for 'Exchange Leaders'). One 11-12 hr Exch Leader shift fulfills requirement of 3 volunteers.

ALL ONLINE VOLUNTEER TRAINING:

A mandatory online Volunteer Training audio/visual presentation and subsequent multiple choice quiz is required to be passed as fulfillment of volunteer training. Each of the three team volunteers MUST individually watch the audio/visual presentation and pass the online quiz. It can be taken over as many times as necessary to pass. Free race day volunteer shirts are provided, but size estimates are based on previous year's volunteer pool because of manufacturer's early order requirement. A volunteer shirt is provided to each volunteer, however personal size requests ARE NOT guaranteed.

Attendance: Teams are responsible for their volunteers peforming their assigned duties, at the correct time. If a volunteer

can't go, the team must find a replacement and make sure the job is fulfilled. Failure to report for assignment results in team DQ. All volunteers wear the race official shirt given when performing their job, identifying them as a 'Race Official'. If they cannot, they will still be accepted to perform the job. When the volunteer checks in, they should sign in with their Team Number in the Exchange Book, for the team to get credit. The volunteer will receive a safety vest that must be worn for the entire shift. At c o m p l e t i o n , v o l u n te e rs M U S T s i g n o u t i n t h e E xc h a n g e B o o k .

DRIVERS GUIDE Driving the course requires as much planning as running the race. Below are directions to help you plan and avoid frustration caused by having 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, the last fuel stop before the beach in 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. THERE ARE AT LEAST TWO (2) AREAS ON THE COURSE THAT WILL BE RESTRICTED TO ONE VAN PER TEAM There are areas where congestion is caused specifically by narrow roads and the number of vans traveling. Teams will not be able to have two vans together from Exchanges 18-23 and 31-35 or risk being disqualified. Cell phone coverage may not be available in all areas (particularly legs 18-32). Have a back up plan.

Areas Restricted To One Van: • • •

Between Exch 18 (Columbia Co. Fairgrounds/St. Helens) and intersection of HWY 202 and Old Ranch Road (Leg 23). Map shown in handbook (page 42). Between Olney (Exchange 31) and HWY 101 in Seaside (Leg 36). Map shown in handbook (page 55). There are also shortcut routes listed in the handbook leg maps for Exchanges 6 to 12, and between the Start and 13.

Rule Reminders:

Giving Aid and Support along the course: Absolutely no team members are allowed to cross busy highways or streets with the purpose of giving aid or support. Vans must safely pull over to that side of the 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. The parking areas are designed to reduce congestion and traffic on the course. Even if you think you'll stop for only a minute, find a parking place within the designated parking areas, as this will greatly reduce congestion. Exchanges are marked with yellow paint on paved roads and pink flagging along gravel roads. Slow down on gravel roads (Legs 20 and 21) to reduce dust and for your safety.

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.

2014 PROVIDENCE PORTLAND TO COAST WALK RELAY HANDBOOK


PORTLAND TO COAST WALK 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 WALK 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. (HTC/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 (pages 12-13). Failure to adhere to this agreement could result in my team's disqualification. SIGNATURE or TEAM #: ________________________________________
