I Like Pie Thanksgiving Fun Run

Start Time

This is an un-timed event, with a rolling start time between 7:30am-9:30am.

  • If you’d like to have a more competitive experience, please plan to line up at 7:30 and we’ll send the racers off the line first, it’s still an untimed event but you can race for bragging rights.
  • For those that want a more leisurely or family-oriented pace, please feel free to join us for a start on your time-frame.
  • The start line will stay open until 9:30 am with the last piece of pie served by 10:30 am (we want our staff and volunteers to have time with their families too)!

About Cascade Relays Foundation:

At Cascades Relays, being a positive member of the communities we live in and travel through is very important to us. The Cascade Relays Foundation, founded in 2016, supports local non-profits, school groups, and community organizations in the communities our events travel through. It has directly donated over $500,000 to local nonprofits and community groups since its founding in 2008. The Foundation allows Cascade Relays to support organizations in the communities along its Cascade Lakes Relay and Bend Beer Chase course routes. Learn More.
