All the info you need to register

We've organized all the in-depth registration info across the tabs above. We recommend reading through it all before you start registering, but hey, if you're excited, you can just press this big "Register Now" button.

But perhaps the biggest question you have is "will this race even happen?" to which the answer is an emphatic


We've crossed the magic threshold of financial feasibility. S2S is a full go!

Teams have the option of registering for an upgraded price and receiving "cancel coverage." This gives a team the assurance that if things go awry for any number of reasons, they'll get either a sizable refund or a FULL CREDIT deferral. The cancellation terms for both standard & Cancel Covered Teams are spelled out on the Pricing tab.

NOTE: There is no difference between standard and Cancel Covered on race day.

As we work on permitting and preperation through the spring, we will be tracking closely with our permitting cities and state departments on any concern points or restrictions. We are confident that this run will be able to happen amidst social distancing measures for the following reasons:

  • The relay is outdoors. Generally, outdoor summer activity is considered very low risk.
  • S2S is already a spread event--no mass start of hundreds of runners at once.
  • We have lots of time to strategize for gathering points that might be considered problematic (major exchanges, Finish Line Party, etc)

Cancellation Policy

Following is our Refund/Deferral policy, applicable for race cancellation due to any reason.

Standard Teams

50% Credit for future use.

Cancel Covered Teams

The team captain will be given the choice of either A) 75% cash refund or B) 100% credit for future use.


- Credit/refund percentage is calculated on the amount paid (after any discounts), not list price.

- Credit can be used for any NxNW event or purchase and does not expire.

- All refunds and credits will be in the name of the team captain (NOT THE TEAM), but credit can be designated to a new team captain.

- If a team no-shows an event that happens as scheduled, they can receive credit, but not a refund.

- These terms do not supercede terms given to 2020 deferred teams, or the Threshold Cancellation Policy.

6-Pack Teams

Half Teams, Full Fun

The 6-pack offers small groups the opportunity to join the relay without the heavy lift of wrangling together a full 12 runners. Here's how it works

  • Register a 6-pack team for exactly 1/2 price of a Full Team, with up to 6 runners.
  • Complete the Pre-Pairing form so we can do our best to match you.
  • In Earl June, NxNW will pair off all registered 6-Packs into Full 12 person teams and put the two Captains in contact.
  • Coordinate with your matched captain on team details like these:
Basic Contact Make sure you have good contact info and race day coordination for your two groups.
Team Mixing Will you meet-n-greet before the relay? Mix extra runners from one half to the other to fill holes? Pool any resources like vehicles, coolers, etc? Or will you just blind date it race day?
Team Name Are you keeping seperate names or unifying under one?
Team Theme Got a van decoration idea or team costume concept you want to work together on?

Your Questions...Answered!

Will our team be eligible to win our division? And what division would we be in?

Yes. For official standings you’ll be one team and your official time and team classification will be determined by the total of all 12 runners. So if one group is all women, and the second is all men, you’ll be a mixed team (though we will try and put like groups together).

What if we can't agree on a single team name, or don't want to merge names?

Definitely a critical topic. When you register you’ll have your own team name, and will maintain two distinct team names when we pair you unless you inform us otherwise. In announcements and results, we will name BOTH team names.

Can we mix our two teams runner assignments?

Absolutely. If you want to mix and mingle your groups, that it totally your prerogative.

What about team requirements? Volunteers? Safety Gear?

Again, we’ll consider you distinct groups unless you indicate otherwise. Each 6-pak is responsible to supply one volunteer, and will need to show all required safety gear at check-in. In the event of a problem like a no-show volunteer, it will only be held against the offending 6-pak NOT the full team (but none of that’s gonna happen!).

Can we register a 6-Pack and later change it to a larger team?

Yes. This is a great way to get registered at the best price you can early, and expand to a larger team when you've gotten them together. You'll need to contact the race director when you are ready to do this.

What happens if there's an odd number of 6-packs?

A reasonable possibility. If there's an odd-team-out, that team will be given the following choices:

  • Convert (at no cost) to an Ultra, Semi-Ultra, or Full Team (depending on how many additional people they can lure in by raceday).
  • Run as a "Coaster" Team. Run the legs you want, get the experience, shirts, medal, etc. You won't get an official time though. Details in Race Guide.
  • Take a 100% deferral to a future event.
Note: while teams will get paired the first week of May, the odd team out may still get a match before race day. The final decision point will be when registration officially closes on June 11th.

How will you determine which team is the odd one?

The Pre-Pairing Form includes questions about a team's willingness to be the odd team and what choice they would make in that situation. Out of state teams will be avoided, and generally the later a team registers, the more likely they are to be the odd team. Ultimately, the Race Director makes the final decision.

Volunteers Are Awesome & Required

Simply put without volunteers The Spokane To Sandpoint Relay would be impossible to put on. Volunteers serve critical functions from helping with the course set-up/breakdown to being the friendly face at each exchange managing team traffic. Each team is required to provide one (1) or two (2) volunteers. More are gladly accepted though and we promise to be nice to them.

To see the instructions we provide for the volunteers and see what we require of them (it is not much really) check them out.

Volunteer Instructions

Two Options To Meet Team Volunteer Requirement

1. B.Y.O.V.

Bring Your Own Volunteer to meet the volunteer requirement. Remember that friend you helped move who "owes you one"? Time to call in that favor.
6-Packs & Ultras - 1 volunteer required
Semi-Ultras & Full Teams - 2 volunteers required

2. Hire-A-Volunteer

The simple solution for fulfilling the volunteer requirement is to participate in our Hire-A-Volunteer program. We work with local non-profits who provide volunteers in exchange for a donation to their group. This is a great way to support local groups and have your participation in The S2S Relay give a little back to the communities we run through.

Through 5/21
5/22 - 7/7
High School Team N/A N/A
6-Packs & Ultras $150 $300
Semi-Ultras & Full Teams $300 $600

A team can decide to change from BYOV to Hire-A-Volunteer and will be charged the appropriate rate based on when they notify the Director, not their registration date. Once a team selects Hire-A-Volunteer no changes can be made.
