Timex Bike Course
Athletes will enjoy a lakeside transition before starting a one-loop, 112-mile bike course that is comparable in difficulty to the bike routes at previous IRONMAN® Canada venues. Athletes will travel south on the Sea-to-Sky Highway before climbing into the Callaghan Valley, site of the Nordic skiing events during the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. After descending back to the highway, athletes pass through Whistler on their way north to Pemberton. An out-and-back section allows athletes breathtakingly beautiful views of glaciated peaks, while racing on a completely flat section of road. Athletes then return to Whistler via the Sea-to-Sky Highway.
2016 Timex Bike Course
The two-loop, 26.2 mile run course follows the meandering Valley Trail past Lost Lake and Green Lake allowing spectators to reinvigorate athletes with a return through Whistler Village at the halfway point of the run. Athletes repeat the same loop a second time before finishing adjacent to Whistler Olympic Plaza.
