Race Preview: 2021 Bend Beer Chase Relay

There’s saying about races in the Pacific Northwest races that if you add beer to a race, people will come. The Bend Beer Chase on Friday, September 24, 2021, offers the best of both worlds. This six-person, one day relay consists of 12 legs of varying distance from 4-8 miles per leg with each runner on the team running two legs. The course starts at 10 Barrel Brewing, travels to Richmond, and finishes at the Deschutes Historical Museum in downtown Bend.

Local breweries host each of the exchange points along the course where participants can sample 3-4oz of craft beer. Every team is required to have a designated driver who is not allowed to sample alcohol during the event.

Teams can enjoy a full pint of beer at the end of the event from their favorite brewery and are encouraged to run or walk the Keg Leg – a three-mile loop through downtown Bend. Spend a day outdoors enjoying Bend’s breathtaking views and amazing craft brews at the Bend Beer Chase.
