Whistler Alpine Meadows

Friday, September 20-22, 2019 - 25km, 55km, 110km, NEW 175km, NEW Ascent Race, NEW Triple WAMMY!

Welcome to the Whistler Alpine Meadows races. Quite simply, this is some of the most fantastic terrain you could ever hope to run on, with the added bonus of being in the world class destination of Whistler, British Columbia, Canada.

The Whistler Alpine Meadows races (WAM) encompass all of the absolute highlights of what Whistler and coastal British Columbia has to offer, and in fact many of the alpine trails utilized in these races were only completed over the last few years. Runners will be treated to expansive alpine meadows, raging waterfalls, blooming wildflowers, calving glaciers, dizzying suspension bridge crossings, pristine alpine tarns and over a dozen backcountry lakes, and that’s not to mention the 360 degree panoramic mountain views as far as the eye can see. Whistler is world famous, and for good reason!
