Cascade Lakes Relay

Friday 4 - Saturday 5

RELAY — Wanna race 216 miles amid high altitude, beautiful scenery and summer heat? Enticing, isn't it, and luckily, you can take all the glory of having run the Cascade Lakes, and split the challenge with 11 of your favorite running partners who can bear the brunt of this grueling, albeit stunning, course. Having grown from 62 teams at its inception to over 300 teams and 3,500 participants, Cascade Lakes Relay is the premiere relay race, capturing the spirit of the Cascade Mountains. A whopping 216-mile course takes teams through the beauty of Central Oregon as groups start the race overnight at Diamond Lake, cross to Silver Lake, through the backs of La Pine and end at Riverbend Park, in Bend. Pegged as being an event truly focused on team spirit and camaraderie, this evokes the Central Oregonian soul. Cross the finish line and enjoy a rockin' party in downtown Bend at Riverbend Park. // 7am - 9pm. Starting in Diamond Lake and finishing at Riverbend Park in Bend.

Twilight 5K

Thursday 10

FUN RUN
— Not intended to be taken too seriously — I mean, this is Bend after all, and beer is a priority — the Twilight 5K run/walk beats the heat and eliminates the scorching summer rays by taking place in the cooler hours of the evening (Read, it'll be 85 instead of 100). Family-friendly and for all race types and abilities, this is a super fun run with a varied, easy course that culminates in a post-race party with food, brews, live music and of course, Deschutes Brewery Twilight Summer Ale. Once you've finished consuming all those calories you just spent running, take in the Bend Brewfest — right across the street at Les Schwab Amphitheater. We did say this was Bend, yeah? So go ahead and go, "Stone two birds with....err...wait, how's that saying go? I think I had too many Twilights in prep for this race. That's what you're supposed to do, right? // 7pm. Deschutes Brewery Lawn, 901 Simpson Ave., Bend.
