Janrain Participates in Hood to Coast Relay

How many Janraineers (and friends of Janrain employees) does it take to run 197 miles from Mt. Hood west to the Oregon coast? Fueled by gatorade and plenty of Advil, 12 runners, 2 drivers and 2 vans from Team Janrain participated in the annual Hood to Coast relay last weekend, finishing 270th out of the more than 900 teams that entered.

Now in its 29th year, Hood to Coast pits 12,000 runners against the diverse Oregon terrain, heat, fatigue and sleep deprivation that goes with a nearly 200-mile relay race spread over 2 days. It is billed as one of the largest relay races in the world.

We had a great time and hope to be back next year. Enjoy the pictures below:
