Fire Update

We are currently in GO mode for the 2018 Cascade Lakes Relay.  That said, we will continue to communicate any changes to our participants.
Fire and smoke conditions change daily and sometimes hourly.  We are monitoring the current fire and smoke conditions each day and are in contact with Fire Incident Duty Officers.
We evaluate many factors including the health, safety, and well-being of our participants, staff, and volunteers for air quality.  We also evaluate the availability and strain on the numerous public agencies that support our event.
For more information, please view our smoke update or visit Timber Crater 6 Fire Info and the Oregon Air Quality Map.


Pre-Event & Overflow: If a teammate wants to leave their car at the finish line in Bend and carpool to Diamond or Silver Lake, they must leave their car at the Athletic Club of Bend at 61615 Athletic Club Drive and park in the lot farthest away from the club building.

That is the only approved place to leave your car overnight.

Finish Line: Vans MUST park at either Mill Point or Deschutes Ridge Parking lots.  Public or spectator parking is available at the Dog Park or in the Old Mill District.
