Welcome to the 7th Annual Spokane to Sandpoint Relay, August 15-16th, 2014
Curious about what running Washington’s and Idaho’s Spokane to Sandpoint Relay is like? Check out the video from last year’s race.
As a small independent running relay, S2S offers a different experience with more amenities:
- A free craft beer at the finish for all participants and volunteers
- A Team Captain gift to thank you for your extra work
- Professional timing of all 36 legs with live updates during the race
- A free medical team available for everything from blisters to heat injuries
- An extra “veteran” shirt for every 5 years you participate
- Personalized bibs with your team name
- Enough porta potties so you’re never waiting for more than a few people
- 30% of the course is on off-road paved trail & 40% is along waterfront
- An intimate feel where you get to know the other teams, staff & volunteers along the course
- No traffic!
Come join us and experience the difference yourself!
The 200 mile Spokane to Sandpoint Relay (S2S) begins atop picturesque Mt. Spokane, Washington and winds through 60 miles of world class Centennial Trail (with a total of 80 miles of property adjacent to waterfront), and meanders through two National Forests en route to the finish line at the beach in beautiful Sandpoint, Idaho.
S2S has quickly become one of the Pacific Northwest’s premier running events. In 2013 we’ve added a 139 mile Walk Relay, beginning at Mirabeau Meadows Park and finishing with the runners in Sandpoint! The S2S race supports runners and walkers of every level with standard teams of 8-12 runners or walkers, ultra teams of 4-6 or super-ultra with less than 4 runners.

As the new owners and race directors, we made many improvements to the race in 2012, including a more professional start line and finish line party, official race timer & announcer, medical support along the course, more staff, lights at night exchanges, safety equipment for volunteers, high quality shirts and medals, 5th Year S2S Veteran shirts, and more porta-potties, just to name a few. In 2013 we added a walk relay and were the first long distance relay in the country to professionally time all 36 legs of the race and provide real-time results online throughout the race! We also removed the safety portages, improved several exchange points, and added volunteer bikers to nighttime trails. Participants enjoyed a free craft beer from one of three different breweries at the finish line to reward the extra miles in 2013. At our finish line party on the beach our participants and spectators enjoyed music, food from Trinity at the Beach, a beer garden, swimming, awards ceremony and more.
Expect even more improvements for 2014. We are excited to continue working to improve this race and to make it a premiere event in Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho!
