West Coast Route

From Seattle to Dallas: 4,300 Miles

The West Coast route of Carry The Load’s National Relay begins high in the Pacific Northwest at Victor Steinbrueck Park in Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market neighborhood. Much like the East Coast route, it’s hard to overstate the beauty of the West Coast journey passing through the gorgeous architecture within the University of Oregon; the monumental mountains of Burney, CA; the vines of Napa; the Golden Gate Bridge; the flash of Hollywood; the lights of Vegas; the painted desert of Arizona; and the white sands of New Mexico before its final 13-day stretch through West and South Texas.
