Red Bull 400 Whistler

Dubbed the steepest race on the planet, Red Bull 400 challenges runners of all skill levels to push their limits in a heart pumping, 400-metre, uphill climb of the ski jump at Whistler Olympic Park. With a colossal 140-metre height gain (that’s 40 stories!), this race is the ultimate test of endurance, speed and determination, which can be taken on individually or in a 4-person relay.

Whistler Olympic Park

Located in the beautiful Callaghan Valley just South of Whistler, Whistler Olympic Park is no stranger to competition. The venue saw glory and gold as host of the 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games, with one third of all medals awarded at the venue and Paralympic champions crowned on the trails. Today, it remains an active centre for world-class competitors while preserving the Olympic legacy for the enjoyment of everyone. In winter, visitors enjoy 130 kilometres of picturesque cross-country ski and snowshoe trails, biathlon, and tobogganing, while hiking, sightseeing, e-biking, disc golf and summer biathlon are popular in the summertime.
