If running for beer isn’t your thing but you’re still up for a good time with 12 of your best pals, put the Cascade Lakes Relay on your list. Oregon’s most challenging and fun overnight relay starts in the Cascade Mountains, travels through the Oregon Outback to Silver Lake, winds back to the Cascade Lakes Highway around Mt Bachelor, and finishes on the banks of the Deschutes River in Bend. The race covers 216 miles of Oregon’s most beautiful landscape. If you are seeking an adventure where you can push your limits while connecting with friends and nature, the Cascade Lakes Relay should be on your short list.
