***DUE TO RUN LEADERS BEING SLIGHTLY OUT OF COMMISSION FROM THE SQ50 RACE - This pre-run will be rescheduled for Saturday, September 7th at 9am. Sorry for any trouble or inconvenience!! Hope to see you there!!!!***
Come join us for our season wrap-up Pre-Run of the WAM CMTS course to get you race day ready!! This Pre-Run will be some kind of special with all the new lovely new course options for WAM! We can't wait!
For this pre-run- we will be offering a 20k 1561m run from Whistler Village to the top of Whistler Mountain via Singing Pass. This route showcases a portion of the 55k, 110k and 100m route IN REVERSE. It is one of our favourite portions of this race and a must see! From the top of the mountain, you can either tram down or make it a 40k and make your way back to Whistler Village exactly the opposite of where you came :)!
Where: Singing Pass Trail Head
When: Saturday September 7th, 9am
Why: Cause mountain time with friends is FUN :) !
