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 TWO seperate days to accomodate all the new lovely course options for WAM! 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!
Where: We will be meeting in the Meadow Park Sports Centre parking lot . Please be advised, you are NOT to park in the Sports Centre parking lot as there are parking restrictions - Parking can be found on the streets around the Sports Centre - but please accommodate time for this.
When: Check-in will begin at 730am - briefing will begin at 750am - please arrive on time as we plan to head out on trail for 8am.
What: We are VERY excited to showcase the WAM 12k and 25k routes ( minus approximately 2-3k due to a modified run start). Please familiarize yourself with these routes.
We ask for safety purposes those planning to run the 25k not be new to this distance. This is an amazing and challenging 25k 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 5 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 1.5L of water, 1000 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 25k route, we will ask that you participate in the 12k instead. 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!!
