Triple WAMMY!

September 9th - 11th, 2022

Date: Sept 9-11, 2022
Total Distance: 80.75 kms / 50 miles
Total Ascent: 6,450 m / 21,250 ft
Total Descent: 3,900 m / 12,800 ft

Overview

The “Triple WAMMY!” involves running the ascent race on Friday, via a lung searing 1200 meter ascent over a distance of just 5.75 kms. Follow that up with a 25K alpine venture on day two, through the Decker – Overlord area on Blackcomb, and make sure you keep something in the tank for day three, where you cap it all off with a double mountain, back to back alpine passes, running of the 50K.

Decisions, decisions, do you lay it all on the line and simply hope to survive the weekend, or do you play it conservative, saving something for both Saturday and Sunday’s stages?

If you’ve played it smart through the first stage, then day two should be a breeze. After all, it’s “jUsT” 25K with 1750 meters / 5750 feet to keep you entertained.

Make sure you’ve conserved some energy for biggest challenge of all, a 50 km point to point race with 3500 meters of climbing, and 2250 meters of descent (11,500ft / 7400ft), on day three. Did you enjoy the ascent race on Blackcomb, way back on day one? We hope so, cause you get to begin your third and final day with an even BIGGER 1700 meter ascent up Whistler Mountain! (Insert evil laugh)

The good news? The good news is that you’ll now get to continue along Whistler’s alpine terrain and out onto Singing Pass, which is quite simply some of the most magnificent singletrack in all of BC. The bad news? What goes up, must come down…way, way down, and then up, and down and up and partially down again.

You get to wrap up your 3-day epic with a finish at the Rendezvous Lodge on Blackcomb Mountain. Let the good times, and good drinks, roll.
