August in Whistler

August 10, 2013 by whistlersuperior

We all welcome back one of the biggest events happening this month, the Crankworx Freeride Mountain Bike Festival. This festival is an epic ten day multi-disciplinary event starting on the 9th. Not only is there awe-inspiring free ride competitions but everyone can also enjoy free concerts, photo and video contests, exhibitions, demos, clinics and endless partying. This year is going to be a big one as they are celebrating their 10-year anniversary, so this festival is a MUST!

All those summer BBQ’s taking their toll on the waist line? Then sign up for the last two big races on this month – 5 Peaks Trail Running series and Salomon Meet Your Maker. The 5 Peaks course is open for people of all athletic skills and will take you running through the rocky hills of Whistler. Meet your maker is a 50 mile course that can be taken solo or as part of a team. This event also brings with it a health and Fitness Expo, live entertainment, a beer garden and ends with a grand award party.

And last, but by no means least, this month brings us the Ironman competition. Watch the participants as they race through Alta-Lake, bike sea-to-sky highway, Callaghan Valley and Pemberton then finish up by running the Valley Trail down to the Olympic Plaza! Stay right at the finish line in one of these properties.
