About Cascade Relays

Our Story

Cascade Relays is a small, family-oriented business based in Bend, Oregon. Founders Scott and Carrie Douglass grew up in Bend, met in 6th grade and eventually married five days before the inaugural Cascade Lakes Relay in August 2008. Working closely together, the small team of staff are focused on the Cascade Relays Family, including the loyal participants, dedicated staff and volunteers, and local communities that contribute to the success of Cascade Relays events.

Cascade Relays currently produces Cascade Lakes Relay, Bend Beer Chase, Big Butte Challenge, and other local events.
