Whistler 50 Relay & Ultra
October 17, 2020
This annual fall event is a 50-mile relay race open to teams of 8, 4, or 2 members, as well as 50K solo ultra-marathoners. In 2019, the course was changed up to welcome in the natural setting of Whistler’s incredible Lost Lake trails, and all the excitement of transitions now take place behind the Olympic Rings at Whistler Olympic Plaza. Spectators can enjoy the comfort of the beer gardens while cheering on their favourite athlete. Stay for the weekend to enjoy the pre-race social and post-race party.
