    The weather was perfect for the day. There were about 600+ runners headed out from the village out towards the trails. I recommend doing some hill prep for this race. You do a lot of short track trails and it does climb a bit. I enjoyed it, she’s and back of my legs covered in mud. The post race food was a delight, not only the usual stuff but fresh bread, and cookies as well as grilled cheese sandwiches and coffee. Got like the Smartwool socks as well as the unique medal.

    Love Whistler and like this course a lot. A nice mix of road, paved trail, and gravel trail. Great scenery and even a run through the village at one point. Pre-race events are pretty weak, especially vendor booths. Post race is really chaotic because they cram the runners in an amazingly small space for food, water and coffee. This year the water was in a spot where everybody was bunched up and once you got water you had to turn around and fight through a crowd of people trying to get water. Who thinks up these plans? I have run 2 years in a row and the biggest disappointment both years is the race shirts. They suck. Last year the men’s shirt was a weird, blocky fitting shirt that was a rough knit. A couple miles in that and nipples are on fire! This year there was this giant ugly zebra design on the front including a big circle the size of a dinner plate in the middle. It was a rubberized screen print that —you guessed it!—lights up your nipples when you run. And, the rubber really causes extra sweat. It is a really feminine design too – clearly designed by a female. Medals are ok – nothing fancy, but not cheap either. So, if you don’t mind throwing away your shirt like I have for the last couple of years, or lacking delight in pre-race or post-race stuff, it’s a nice course in a terrific location. At least you can find a good burger and beer at numerous restaurants after the run.
