Whistler 50 Relay & Ultra

The 2020 event has been cancelled. BC Athletics and the management team of the Whistler 50 have come to the conclusion that they cannot, in good faith and safety, continue to plan for the Whistler 50 to take place in person as scheduled for October 17, 2020. They are discussing options for a virtual event. Please visit bcathletics.org for updates.

This 50 mile event is open to relay teams of 4 or 8 people with a 50KM distance for solo ultra marathon runners. Whistler 50 Relay is more than just a relay, from the Friday night packet pickup through to the post-race party, where spectators can also enjoy the comfort of the beer gardens while cheering on their favourite athlete. Make it a weekend and enjoy autumn in Whistler.
