The relay comprises an 8-person format, with alternating legs of approximately 13K and 7K, centered around Whistler Village and the picturesque Valley Trail system. The 50 mile (80K) total distance is an achievable goal for novice ultra-marathoners, while still being a recognized qualifying distance for National Team selection.
Enjoy the pre-race social on Friday night and the Saturday night post-race party. Make it a weekend!
