After the success of the inaugural event, a cap of 250 teams and 80 solo ultras has been set for this year. The early entry deadline of $640 for a team of 8, or $85 for an ultra, is August 26. But teams can register for the relay and add details of the team composition later. Fees include all taxes and service charges.
The 8-person, 50 mile relay race or solo ultra-marathon is centred around Whistler Village and the picturesque Valley Trail system. Relay legs alternate between 12k & 8k.
Enjoy the pre-race social on Friday night. And the Saturday night post-race dance will be at the Whistler Conference Centre. Make it a weekend.
A selection of hotels are available for booking, with rooms starting from $99/night. All hotels are within steps of the start/finish and post-race activities.
