When selecting a team name, have fun and be creative, but please be respectful and remember that young teens may participate and children may be present along the course and/or start-finish.
- Select to pay by credit card or check. If paying by credit card you can select to pay via Paypal or “pay as a guest” and use any credit card for payment. This option will charge your card for the full registration amount at the time of registration.

(If you do not receive an email within a few minutes of registering for Spokane to Sandpoint Relay, please check your spam folder and if still not received, please email email@example.com.) Your team is not officially confirmed and registered until we receive your check. If not received within 7 days, your registration will be deleted.

Your check for the “Hire-a-Volunteer” program must be a SEPARATE CHECK from your registration. This option must be paid by check as 100% of proceeds will go to the charities and community groups with whom we partner. Make check payable to Cascade Relays Foundation, PO Box 9640, Bend OR 97708. Include your team name, “S2S” and “HAV” on the check memo.

(Our amazing finishers shirts have to be ordered by April 1st, hence the deadline.) After April 1st, we will do our very best to provide everyone with their requested shirt size, but there are NO guarantees your shirt size will be available if registered after April 1st.

High School Relay
- High School Relay Registration: High school registrations are accepted until July 15th. Please contact the race directors (firstname.lastname@example.org) for registration instructions.
- Walk Relay Information: We are not currently accepting Walk Relay registrations for the 2016 S2S, although you can fill out our Interest Form. We must have a minimum of ten (10) Walk Relay teams by January 1st, 2016 in order to produce the walk event in 2016.
- Volunteer assignments (for teams providing your own volunteers) will be announced by July 15th. Team Captains will receive an email with instructions and volunteer assignments no later than July 15th.
- The donation amount for the “Hire a Volunteer” program is as follows:
- At time of registration or by March 1st*: $100 per volunteer
- Postmarked between March 2nd and May 31st: $150 per volunteer
- Postmarked between June 1st and July 14th: $200 per volunteer
- Postmarked between July 15th and July 31st: $300 per volunteer
- The donation fee to select and hire volunteers goes up as the event date draws near as it is much more difficult to find and coordinate additional charity volunteers closer to the event date. We appreciate teams selecting and paying for this option as early as possible so we can coordinate effectively with over 20 volunteer organizations. 100% of your donation goes directly to the charities who provide volunteers for the event.
- HAV Volunteer checks must be made payable to “Cascade Relays Foundation” and include “S2S”, “HAV”, and your team name in the memo line, as well as the team captain name if different than the name on the check. We wish we were mind readers but we’re not!
- To change your volunteer status from “provide your own volunteers” to “hire a volunteer program” or visa versa, team captains must email email@example.com with the request. The donation payment amount is based on when the donation check is postmarked, so mail the donation check immediately after requesting the change to avoid extra fees.
- Volunteers are absolutely critical for the success and safety of this event. Therefore, if a team elects to provide your own volunteers and your volunteers do not show up for their assignment, a penalty donation of $700 must be made to the “Hire a Volunteer” program in order to receive your team finisher shirts & medals, not be officially disqualified, and to be accepted to participate in CLRG events in future years. Your team will also be required to support the HAV program in order to participate in any CLRG events the following year.
At only $110/person (early registration pricing for run teams – available through December 31, 2015), the Spokane to Sandpoint Relay is a great deal, especially when you consider S2S is a 200 mile, 36 hour experience with facilities/services provided throughout the entire race. Compare that price to a marathon for only a 26-mile, 5-hour experience and you can clearly see why relay races are becoming very popular. In addition to receiving a finisher medal, a gender-fitted technical T-shirt, and a craft beer at the finish line, we provide friendly staff, volunteer coordination, professional timing, medical support, traffic safety, porta-potties, lights, directional signs, cones, trash & recycling, contests & prizes and more throughout all 200 miles.
