The Hood to Coast app is the official mobile companion to the 2019 Mother of All Relay’s Participant Handbook. Participants in this year’s event can now view all race rules, FAQs, maps, elevation charts, exchange details and directions and a lot more. Once logged in, the app allows participants to curate their own custom playlists of any combination of content within the handbook.

A significant percentage of this event takes place in areas of Oregon where there is poor or zero cellular service. The handbook should just be cached in its entirety within the app and not require an active connection. App is worse than useless.
Useless - Do Not Download
This app is useless. In 2017 the app tracked your race progress, projected leg finish times, and had QR codes to slow sharing team progress when there was no cell signal. In short, it was great. This 2018 version is utterly useless. In the words of the race organizers, “The app is not intended to track race times. It's a handy tool for teams to view legs, bookmark pages that are important for the race and to have the handbook available on your phone.” No one bookmarks the handbook. We all have printed copies in the vans. And we all know what our leg profiles look like in advance. So this version of the app is a completely useless pile of garbage.
I was expecting an app that would track runner’s times, show estimated van exchange times and update predicted finishing times as we went along. So far, this is just the handbook. The drone shots looked promising, as I thought it was going to show the leg in its entirety, but when they have them, it only shows one perspective of a leg (i.e. the start of a leg).
Drone views aren’t as needed as the functionality the teams need during the race — connect with team members, real time tracking. Hoping that’s an update they create soon.
