5 Peaks Trail Race #5 - Whistler Blackcomb

  • Whistler, BC CANADA (map)

From the 5 Peaks website:

Whistler is a 5 Peaks racer favourite!

Join us for an epic mountain running experience that will start with a gondola ride up Whistler Mountain, and across to Blackcomb via the stunning Peak to Peak Gondola. Our races on top of Blackcomb take you on a journey through meadows filled with flowers, past alpine lakes, and up and over boulder fields, all with panoramic views that stretch as far as the eye can see.

The Sport Course is 6.6km, 360m elevation gain and the Enduro is 10.6km, 645m elevation gain.

We're using this series primarily as prep for the 2017 Spartan Race Sun Peaks Beast, where we want to go pedal to the metal this year and finish strong instead of "just finishing", but we've also heard that the 5 Peaks crew put on great events, and the trail running community are a fun bunch to hang out with!  I know I really enjoyed my first trail race experience in 2016 (despite my accident cutting my race short), so I'm really looking forward to it.

Both Coach JP and Coach Julia are entered for this event, running the "Enduro", which is supposed to be about 10.6 km in length.

Register at the 5 Peaks website, and come out and join us on the course!
