Whistler Alpine Meadows
Friday, September 25-27, 2020 - 25km, 55km, 110km, 100 mile, Ascent Race, Triple WAMMY!
Covid-19 Update: WAM REGISTRATION CURRENTLY PAUSED.
As a race organization, we realize that it’s currently a 50/50 chance that we’ll be able to host the WAM races in September. All other races and events in Whistler prior to WAM on Sept 25th have already been cancelled or postponed.
As we’ve stated in previous communications, if the race does not happen this year, we will not be offering refunds, but we will be providing deferrals for 100% of race entry values into either 2021 or 2022.
With this in mind, we feel it only fair to pause registration until we are able to make our final call, at the end of June. We have scheduled a July 1st announcement at the very latest. If on July 1st, the race is a go, registrations will of course open up once again. If on July 1st we are forced to postpone until Sept 2021, all entrants will be notified, and we’ll follow up in the fall to confirm how to defer into your choice of either 2021 or 2022.
Thank you for your understanding and patience as we work our way through these uncertain times.
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!
