Echo Valley Endurance Relay
June 11 @ 5:30 pm - June 13 @ 10:00 am PDT
An event every year that begins at 5:30 pm on day second of June, repeating until June 15, 2025
Looking for a race to make you come alive after a long work week? Put your training miles to the test and join with friends to run our Echo Valley Endurance Relay! We’ve decided to spice things up in 2020 and turn Echo Valley into a relay. Teams of two, four or six can tackle the challenge of Echo Valley; Or, if you’re feeling ambitious, you can be a team of one. The format is time-constrained, meaning that teams have a certain amount of time to get as many miles in as possible. The relay will run from sunrise to sunset, approximately 5:08am to 9:14pm.
Based in the pristine wine country of Lake Chelan, Echo Valley offers stunning views, runnable (is that even a word?) single tracks, heaps of sunshine and a retreat from everyday life! The flexibility of the relay format makes this event ideal for any level of trail runner.
To top off this weekend away in the mountains, you can camp pre- and post-race. Take this time to reboot, decompress from technology and reflect on the amazing training you have done. Bonfires, smores, and laughter will be plentiful! Come and share an amazing weekend with us; we promise you will head back to work Monday full of heart and strength of mind! See below for details on accommodations.
This race is sponsored by Vin du Lac of Chelan, one of the top Wineries in the region, named “Winery of the Year” in 2010.
A special thanks to Company Creek Pizza for supporting the Echo Valley races. They’ll be providing pizza to keep you going all day long!
