WAM Pre-Run Day 2

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 as we adventure into the Whistler Alpine Meadows! We can't wait! 

Registration will be minimum $5 donation with all proceeds going to Whistler Search and Rescue.

Mark Your Calendar, you won't want to miss this!

What: We are VERY excited to showcase the first half of the WAM55k course! Please familiarize yourself with this route. 

Important:

We ask for safety purposes those planning to run the ~30k not be new to this distance. This is an amazing and challenging route with some very rewarding alpine beauty to take in. You will be climbing 5100ft into the alpine. We ask that you have run this distance and intensity of climb before and are able to complete this within 6 hours.     

We will be heading up into the remote alpine- and this is a fully self-supported run! It is mandatory that all runners carry at minimum 2L of water, 2000 calories of food, an emergency blanket, an extra warm layer, at a minimum. If you are not carrying these items and plan to do the ~30k route, we will, unfortunately, have to ask you to forgo running. There are water sources along the way that can be filtered if you have a proper filtration system, but please be safe and respect the mandatory gear list.

Lastly, don't forget to bring a warm change of clothes for after so we can grab a brew together and share alpine adventure stories!  

Hope to see you there!!
