Hawaii runners compete in upcoming 'Hood to Coast' relay race

Posted: Updated:

(HawaiiNewsNow) - In what's known as one of the largest relay races in the world, runners will face varying heights and difficulty in the "Hood to Coast" race which stretches nearly 200 miles from Mt. Hood to the Oregon coast. Each runner will complete three legs until the race is finished.

Representing Hawaii will be team Tread For Bread, made up of runners from different Hawaii businesses. There will be two runners from Hawaiian Airlines, one from UHA, one from Lex Brodies, one from Hawaii News Now (our very own news director Mark Platte), and one from GreenFleet Hawaii. Other members include two army officers from the army, a shoe engineer from Nike, a business owner from Seattle and a Bay Area resident.

Tom Flores, executive director of GreenFleet Hawaii, and Doreen Nakamura, care management nurse administrator for UHA, are here to represent Tread for Bread. They join us for more information about their roles in the race which is set to take place August 23.
