Congratulations to the nearly 750 finishers of the 2013 Spokane to Sandpoint Relay!
What an amazing weekend we had with all of you. From the breathtaking sunrise on the top of Mt Spokane, during the spectacular sunset over Coeur d’Alene, to the sunny finish on the shores of City Beach in Sandpoint, we laughed, cheered and sometimes even cried right along with you all the way.
Online results can be found here. We hope that you enjoyed having your splits recorded for you and having live updates along the way! We have also posted division winners and links to the various results reports you may be interested.
You were all amazing with your creative and funny entries into our various contests. Congratulations to all of our Spirit of S2S winners, but in our eyes, you all deserved to win!
Smile! We might have caught you on camera. We’ve posted over 900 photos with more rolling in for you to look over, download and enjoy. Also be sure to check out Tim Chandonnet’s excellent finish line photos.
Finally, we want to give a huge THANK YOU to our amazing volunteers. Putting on this race would be impossible without their help. From the hula ladies at the Exchange #13, to the incredible organization skills of Lutheran Community Services, to the amazing treats from the volunteers at #35, we have some of the best volunteers in the world!
The 200 mile Spokane to Sandpoint Relay (S2S) begins atop picturesque Mt. Spokane, 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.
Get an idea of what S2S is all about by watching this video:
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!
Cascade Lakes Race Group relays are not to be missed. We are a small, family-run business with the mission to provide exceptional race experiences while supporting the communities we run and walk through. We prioritize rural courses, local vendors & businesses, personal relationships and supporting local non-profits. We give our heart and soul to bring you a safe, well-organized and FUN event that you’ll remember forever.
