Whistler 50 Relay and Ultra
Date: Saturday, November 05, 2011
Time: 5am for race check-in
Where: Whistler Conference Center
A great new event is happening in Whistler on Saturday November 5th. BC Athletics is pleased to announce the inaugural Whistler 50 Relay and Ultra which will take place around the Village Trail. An 'ultra' is a running or sporting event which is longer than the traditional marathon length of 42.195 kilometres. This ultra is 50 mile (80K) which is an achievable goal for novice ultra-marathoners. The relay is an 8-person format, with alternating legs of approximately 12K and 8K.
This event was previously known as the Haney-to-Harrison 100K 50 mile relay and ultra. It was decided to move the event to Whistler, due to the popularity of the event and safety concerns over the use of a major highway for much of the course.
You can register online for both events at BC Athletics.
The day will end with a post-race dance at the Whistler Conference Centre in the evening.
Do you need Whistler Hotel Accommodation for the Whistler 50 and Ultra.
The Adara Hotel is located just steps away from the Whistler Conference Center, which is the location for the race check-in. Contact our reservation staff at the Adara Hotel or view our Whistler Village hotel for more information.
