161 kilometers of incredible terrain, up and down the two major mountains on the east side of the Whistler valley, twice! All while covering over 7700 meters (25,000 feet) of climbing and descent, and skirting no fewer than a half dozen alpine lakes along the way, including Jane, Jake, Logger’s, Cheakamus, and more. We’ve even thrown in a suspension bridge crossing for good measure.

Description

The course is absolutely littered with glacial snow-capped peaks as far as the eye can see, with straight shot, up close views over the jagged formations of Black Tusk, Rainbow, Wedge, Whistler, Garibaldi, Fissile, Blackcomb, Overlord, and on, and on.

This scenery through the alpine rivals that of the great races in the European Alps. This race is an absolute beast for runners to conquer and even with a seemingly generous 48-hour cutoff in place, more than a few people won’t even come close, oh and by the way, you’re not allowed a pacer.

This is a graduate level race, so buckle up cause this is a journey you won’t soon forget.
