I’m really excited to bring you this little series, Tour the Course, over the next few months. Basically, you’re going to be getting a visual on the race course for the Whistler Half Marathon. A little sneak peek at some of the parts of this little mountain town that you’ll be running through on June 6.
Now, I’d like to offer an apology on my photography skills upfront. I am not a photog by any stretch of the word, and it’s safe to assume that all of these photos will have been taken on my iPhone camera. So let’s just get that out of the way. Oh, I might also be running when I snap some of them, beware of blurry pics!
The good news? These posts will almost be entirely comprised of photos, and less stuff to read. Just sit back, scroll through, and enjoy. Don’t worry, I won’t be ruining anything (some secrets will be kept) and I promise that everything you’re going to see here will be so much better in person, you won’t even remember that you’ve already seen it!
On with the show:
This series is going to appear once every month, and will feature sections of the course within a 5km span. I’m probably coming up a bit short here, I did leave out the start line and first section crossing the Sea to Sky Highway after all , but a quick check with my Garmin details and this spot here is about where the 5km mark registers.
There you go, the first 5km of the course. Blueberry Hill is the worst of it, I promise. And the views kind of make up for the challenge so early in the race. Trust me, you want it out of the way early so you can enjoy the rest of your day!
Never Stop Exploring ❤,
