The teams are on the course for the Cascade Lakes Relay.
For you folks that have never done a relay, they can be a hoot. The Cascade Relays team puts on a fun event with contests, time trials, and a ton of camaraderie.
Spend 24 hours chasing other teams through the Oregon mountains on a picturesque course. All day, taking turns. All night. Again into the next day. Relays are a unique adventure in running, a combination of teamwork, fun, and the unpredictable.
For those interested, you can follow the action at https://twitter.com/CascadeRelays. They have an app for the leaderboard this year as well.
Good luck to the runners tonight - stay safe, have fun, and RUN!
Full Disclosure - The team I run with, Velocity Deficit Disorder, is out this year. Me because two daughters are expecting babies the same weekend as the Spokane to Sandpoint relay, a couple of others due to work, and one to a Bluegrass festival.
We'll be back next year with a little luck, maybe for the Cascade Lakes Relay this time. Scott and his crew really do put on a great race.
