This 50 mile (80K) event is centered around Whistler Village and the picturesque Valley Trail system. The event is open to Relay Teams of 8, 4, or 2 members as well as solo Ultra-Marathoners. The 8-person format alternates legs of approximately 13K and 7K, while the 4-person and 2-person relays alternate 20K legs. The 50 mile total distance is an achievable goal for novice ultra-marathoners, while still being a recognized qualifying distance for National Team selection.
