Whistler 50 Relay & Ultra

An epic race


more than just a relay

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!

Who does the

whistler 50?

Anyone and Everyone!

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!

Sign up

run it?


Whistler is the backdrop to all aspects of the weekend – from the beautiful views around Lost Lake to the night-life of Whistler Village, what more could you ask for?


Not everyone at the race is competitive, but we know some of you are! As one of the last great races in year, top teams duke it out for the coveted title of Fastest Team. The ultra event is also the Canadian 50 Mile Trail Championship.

Run for the party!

Thanks to the Resort Municipality of Whistler and the Province of British Columbia, we’ve added in a new Finish Line Party taking place throughout Race Day in Whistler Olympic Plaza! Now you can enjoy the Finish Line along with live music, a beer garden, food trucks, and more!

Support Food Banks

So far the Whistler 50 has brought in over $30,000 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.

It was such a good time and an amazing event. It’s a beautiful course and of course my team was the best 🙂 I’m looking forward to next year already!
