Cascade Lakes Relay

Event Info

Oregon’s most challenging running relay course starts in the Cascade Mountains at Diamond Lake Resort, travels through the Oregon Outback and rural agricultural country, and winds back to the Cascade Lakes Highway, around Mt. Bachelor and into the resort community of Bend. You’ll see more cows than semi-trucks and smell pine trees instead of exhaust. If you are seeking an adventure where you can push your limits and rediscover your senses, then this is the event for you and your team.  Cascade Lakes Relays offers something for everyone with 3 events: CLR 36, CLR 24 and the Walk Relay.

Due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on future events,  a revised registration / lottery process for CLR 2021 will be announced in September 2020.  We thank you for your patience as we navigate the best path forward for our teams.

CLR 36

216.6 MILES  *  36 LEGS  *  12 RUNNERS

216.6 MILES  *  36 LEGS  *  12 RUNNERS

OVERNIGHT RELAY *  DIAMOND LAKE TO BEND

CLR 36 is the full Cascade Lakes Relay 216.6 mile course from Diamond Lake to Bend.  Teams of 12 (or even 6 or 8) runners take turns running “legs” – shorter segments of 3 to 9 miles that link together at exchange points. A total of 36 legs comprise the Cascade Lakes Relay.  For a team of 12, that means each individual will run three times. Total mileage for each runner averages around 18 miles. Ultra teams, or those with less than 12 members, will run anywhere from 4 to 6 legs. Most teams take about 32 hours to complete the 216.6 miles.

OVERNIGHT RELAY – SILVER LAKE TO BEND

 

We also offer a shorter running relay, CLR 24,  which follows the 132 mile course that begins in Silver Lake and finishes at Riverbend Park in Bend.  CLR 24 uses the same course as CLR 36, but begins with Leg 13 in Silver Lake on Friday early evening merging right into the excitement and pack of CLR 36 running teams. CLR 24 teams are comprised of 6-12 runners. A 12 member team will each run/walk two legs during the course of the race, while an 8 person team will each have 3 legs to cover. Legs range from 3 to 9 miles in length, averaging 12 miles total per runner. Participants receive all of the same swag as the CLR 36 participants, including a CLR finishers shirt, medal and beer at the finish.
