Whistler Alpine Meadows – 12km, 25km and 50km
Welcome to the Whistler Alpine Meadows race. Quite simply 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, BC.
The Whistler Alpine Meadows trail races (WAM) happen on the Northwest side of town, on terrain that has only been opened up in the last two years. Local Kevin Titus has been instrumental in not only constructing this network but in helping us bring this concept to life. Kevin’s vision, as a lifelong resident of Whistler, is on full display via his crowning achievement, The Skywalk Trail. Runners will be treated to alpine meadows, waterfalls, wildflowers, glaciers and mountain views as far as the eye can see. Did we mention you’ll get to run to a glacier and back? Yeah, you get to run a friggin’ glacier! We thinks that’s pretty cool…get it…insert sad pun noise.
The Whistler Alpine Meadows races have it all and are not shy on the elevation profile side of things either. Our 12km distance has 650m / 2100ft while our 25km distance will boast 1500m / 5100ft, and our 55km race has a staggering 3350m / 11,000ft! Buckle up!
