Whistler 50 – Saturday 19th October

by vanfrontrunners

This year’s Whistler 50 takes place on Saturday 19th October.

It is run by teams of 8 people doing alternating legs of 13km and 7km. Last year we had 3 teams taking part from Vancouver Frontrunners and it would be great to see that many of us up there again this year. You can specify what distance you’d like to run.

We usually meet on the Friday night (flexible arrival time) – the team captains give out the race package to their team members and people generally have some dinner/drinks.

On the Saturday you run in your scheduled slot for your scheduled distance and afterwards (or before) you can chill in Whistler or cheer on your fellow team members (or both). We then all meet up for an early dinner and go on for a night of partying (optional!).

Check out the website for full details – http://www.bcathletics.org/whistler50/index.htm

We do have an offer with one of the hotels for cheaper accommodation and will send you the details if interested. We’ll also try to co-ordinate lifts to Whistler closer to the date.

You do not register yourself for the race – you need to let us know you’re interested using the form below and your team captain will register you.

Each of the teams also needs a single volunteer (who is not running).
