FAQS – BBC – Deferred 2020 Teams

Your team registration will not automatically transfer to Bend Beer Chase 2021.   All BBC 2020 teams will receive Guaranteed Entry to CLR throughout their credit/deferral timeline (3 years or 3 team registrations, whichever comes first); however, Team Captains are still required to registered their team for the event.

You can absolutely use your credit in 2022. Your credit and deferrals never expire and can be transferred from the 2020 team captain to a newly designated person.

Your credit and 1st deferral cannot be combined towards registration of the same event in the same year.  You may use your credit for Bend Beer Chase and your 1st deferral in the same year; however, they must be used for separate team registrations (either a second BBC team or a different event).

Example 1: your team may use your credit to register for BBC2021 and your 1st deferral for Cascade Lakes Relay / CLR-24 in 2021 

Example 2: your team may use your credit to register one team for BBC2021 and your 1st deferral to register a 2nd team for BBC2021.

Our small team is working behind the scenes to ensure our 2021 events provide an exceptional opportunity for us to gather again safely doing what we do best - challenging our minds and bodies while building strong supportive relationships, experiencing a beautiful scenic course together, while helping our local community.  We need all of this again and more in 2021! 


We will do everything in our power to provide an in-person event in 2021 for our teams.  If we are unable to hold Cascade Lakes Relay as advertised, we are working on alternative plans that will provide teams with a valuable experience. These alternative plans include but are not limited to: a modified or shortened course, changing to a trail relay format, or an enhanced virtual platform. 

Your team registration fee is non-refundable once accepted and confirmed.
