200 mile relay run with teams of 1 - 12 runners
August 18-19, 2017

The Spokane to Sandpoint Relay (S2S) begins atop picturesque Mt. Spokane and winds through 50 miles of world class Centennial Trail, along 60 miles of property adjacent to waterfront, meanders through two National Forests en route to the finish line on the beach of Lake Pend Oreille in Sandpoint, Idaho.

Spokane to Sandpoint Relay has quickly become one of the Pacific Northwest’s premier overnight relay events. The race supports runners of every level with standard teams of 8-12 runners, ultra teams of 4-6 or super-ultra with less than 4 runners.

In addition to producing exceptional events, the mission of the Cascade Relays is to support local non-profit organizations and businesses in the communities we travel through. We “hire” approximately 100 volunteers and donate directly to the non-profit/community group they are representing and supporting. In 2016, $10,000 was donated to local non-profits and community groups through the S2S “Hire a Volunteer” program!
