BC Athletics is pleased to host the 6th annual Whistler 50 Relay & Ultra. The 50 mile event is open to relay teams of 8, 4, or 2 people and solo ultra-marathoners. From the Friday night social through to the post-race party, the Whistler 50 is more than just a relay!
The Whistler 50 is open to everyone, with distances ranging from 7km to 80km. From first-time relay participants to experienced ultra-marathoners, there’s something for runners of all abilities!
Teams can be made up of 2, 4, or 8 people, with both competitive and recreational categories. Participate with a group of girlfriends, buddies from the bar, the folks from the office, or even as officials in uniform – there’s something for everyone!
Thanks to the Resort Municipality of Whistler and the Province of British Columbia, we’re featuring a great Finish Line Party taking place throughout Race Day in Whistler Olympic Plaza! Now you can enjoy the Finish Line along with music, a beer garden, food from Whistler Cooks, and more!
So far the Whistler 50 has brought in over $36,000 for food banks in the Sea to Sky Corridor. In addition to these financial contributions, BC Athletics asks that all participants bring non-perishable food items to donate. More info.
