Beer Chase Relay Series Expands

Cascade Relays, the group that has been bringing the Cascade Lakes Relay to the Pacific Northwest for more than a decade is also the mastermind behind the growing Beer Chase Series. The Beer Chase Series is the first of its kind in the country featuring a one-day event, team relay, and brewery visits. In 2018, Cascade Relays will introduce another Beer Chase on February 24, this time further south. San Diego will be the host city kicking off the series. Six friends will travel 50 miles over one day experiencing and sampling beer from 15+ craft breweries. This event is a perfect reprieve from the gray winter of the Pacific Northwest. The San Diego Beer Chase starts in Escondido and travels west to the coastline before heading south through Encinitas, Solano Beach, Del Mar, La Jolla, Pacific Beach, and Mission Bay to the finish in downtown San Diego. Relay runner exchanges will be at or near some of the area’s finest local craft breweries, and each exchange at a brewery will offer team members the option to enjoy and experience a 3-4 ounce sample of beer.

The Cascade Relays Foundation provides annual grants totaling $63,000 to communities of their hosted events. Since 2008, Cascade Relays has contributed over $300,000 to local community, school groups, and charitable organizations through their Cascade Relays Foundation.
