TWO UPCOMING TRAIL RACES TO TELL YOU ABOUT

Coming in hot, one week out from both events, to tell you all about some pretty incredible-looking trail races coming up in Whistler in the next week. Registration is still open for both, so if either of them pique your interest – GET IN THERE!

WHISTLER ROTARY BRANDYWINE BOOGIE 11.5km

The scenery on the Sea to Sky Trail is just incredible

A point-to-point jaunt along the Sea to Sky Trail from Cheakamus to Brandywine Falls Provincial Park, the route for this race is mainly gravel with some single track and largely downhill (there are some minor climbs on the route) . If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at trail races, this might be one of the prettiest and most gentle to break into with.

Being that this is on one of my favourite trails to run in Whistler I’m likely to sign up for it myself. I love the Sea to Sky Trail south of Whistler. Check out their Facebook page for more photos and up to date information about the race.

When: Sat, Sept 5 at 9:00am (rain or shine)
Where: Cheakamus Crossing
Registration: $55 at http://www.raceonline.ca/events/details/972

SALOMON VALLEY TO PEAK RACE 19.5km

High Note Trail – the TOP of your journey will take you along this section (yes, that’s me).

Have you ever wanted to run UP a mountain? Here’s your chance! Whistler Blackcomb and the Salomon store are bringing one heck of a challenge to the trail running table. A “19.5 km and 1,609 m of elevation gain” kind of challenge.

There are timed cut-offs (check the race rules and regulations here), option to put in a 3-person relay team, and I promise you the views will be absolutely STUNNING.  High Note trail on a sunny day is absolute perfection.

Check out their Facebook page for more photos and up to date information about the race.

When: Sat, Sept 5, 8:30am
Where: Salomon store, Whistler village
Registration: $65 solo, $160 team http://www.whistlerblackcomb.com/valleytopeak

Never Stop Exploring ❤,
