Whistler 50 Relay & Ultra

October 5, 2024

The Whistler 50 is open to all runners and features a 50 mile team relay (80k) and 50k solo ultra course centred on the beautiful trails at Lost Lake Park. Teams can be made up of 4 or 8 people, with both competitive and recreational categories. The day culminates with a post-run party in iconic Whistler Olympic Plaza.

2024 Course Details

The course loops around Lost Lake Park and through Whistler Olympic Plaza. The exchange point is at the Start/Finish Line at Whistler Olympic Plaza. While your teammate is running, you can stroll through the Village and pick up a coffee or hang out in the beer garden to cheer them on.

The 50-mile (80-kilometre) relay course consists of 8 loops of 10 kilometres. The 8-person relay runs 10K loops while the 4-person relays alternate 20K loops. The solo ultra is beginner-friendly, with five, 10k loops of the Whistler Valley Trail, multiple support points, and the security blanket of being within reach of civilization for your first Ultra.
