9th Annual Cascade Lakes Relay
July 29th-30th, 2016.
Registration opens Oct 1st-5th, 2015.
Congratulations to the 3,000 runners and walkers who completed the 8th Annual Cascade Lakes Relay, making CLR the largest running event in Central Oregon! With much gratitude, we thank our 385 volunteers, 50 staff and 250 team captains who made the 2015 event a huge success! Our 2015 events are on track to raise over $60,000 for local non-profits and community groups in the towns and cities we run through!
You can follow the incredible journey of our runners and walkers on Facebook and Instagram. We will be posting all of our photos to enjoy and download in the next few days. Official results are available here and contest winners have been announced here.
This year marked the inaugural CLR24 race – a new “relay within a relay” – with runners starting in Silver Lake and running the final 24 legs of the full 36 leg course. The inaugural event was a huge hit, with participants commenting how nice it was to run fewer legs and get to the beer garden sooner. Or, teams that ran CLR24 with only 8 runners could still enjoy a full 3-leg relay without having to recruit a 12 person team. Good news – we have decided to continue CLR24 for 2016!
The 2016 lottery will work the same as in the past. All teams must register between Oct 1st – Oct 5th (even if you have guaranteed entry). We will hold a weighted lottery, with returning team captains receiving one entry for each year they have participated in CLR. On October 15th we will announce the results of the lottery for the full 36 leg race. Following the announcement of selected CLR36 teams, we will open registration for CLR24 from Oct 15th – Oct 20th, and we will announce CLR24 accepted teams on Oct 26th. Good luck!
Thank you to our many partners, supporters and friends. We are honored to produce one of the best events in the Pacific NW.
