The 2013 Whistler 50 running garment is a gender-specific, double-mesh, wicking, short-sleeve tee. Purple for women, black for men. Please note there are no exchanges for garment sizes after orders have been placed, so please have a look at the sizing chart to see what size will suit you best. These size suggestions are just that—Whistler 50 is not responsible for size exchanges.
NOTE: Garment sizes not selected will automatically default to Large. Changes can be made online until Sep 23/13. Additional garments (for your volunteer, family or friends) may be ordered until midnight September 23 using the extra garment order form.
Each team should consist of eight (8) runners. In extraordinary circumstances (e.g. medical), with written application to, and approval from, the Race Director, a team may be permitted to compete with 7 runners. Substitutions on Legs 1-7 are permitted but a 2 minute penalty may be assessed if an unfair advantage is gained. Substitutions are not permitted on the last leg (Leg 8).
ALL TEAMS (from any town) are required to provide volunteer assistance with the running of this race:
Each team must bring a completed and signed Release, Waiver & Assumption of Risk to Packet Pickup.
Changes/substitutions can be made by the team captain: online or when picking up race packets.
Please review your team plan. Team Race Plans (team category, running order, name, gender and age of each runner, and shirt sizes) must be submitted online by September 23 at midnight.

If you have a runner drop out for any reason you can change the runner list at packet pick-up or at the exchange station on Saturday morning.
There will be a FORCE-START on Leg 6 of the relay at 2:30pm from Whistler Olympic Plaza for safety considerations. If a team's leg 5 runner has not reached the Exchange by 2:30pm, the leg 6 runner will start at 2:30pm and the extra time it takes the leg 5 runner to arrive at the Exchange will be added to the final finish time.
