Whistler 50 Relay & Ultra

An epic race


more than just a relay

After much discussion and thought, BC Athletics and the management team of the Whistler 50 have come to the conclusion that we can not, in good faith and safety, continue to plan for the Whistler 50 to take place in person as scheduled in October 2020.  We are disappointed to see another event cancelled as we so look forward to hosting everyone at Whistler Olympic Plaza each year, and we know each of you enjoy being a part of the action. Read the full update.


This 2020 we are hosting a virtual relay, get your team together, run, bond and have the chance to win a number of great prizes from the Whistler 50 supporters and sponsors. At the same time your entry fees go to support BC Athletics youth programs, coaching education and work we do to help develop athletes to the national and international level!

Who does the

whistler 50?

Anyone and Everyone!

The Whistler 50 is open to everyone, with distances ranging from 10KM to 50KM. From first-time relay participants to experienced ultra-marathoners, there’s something for runners of all abilities!

Teams can be made up of 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.

Run for the party!

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 and more!

Support Food Banks

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.

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!
