Every element that makes BC Children's Hospital so important to BC's kids would not be possible without the generosity of our supporters and friends. From the tiniest toy that puts a smile on a youngster's face to the groundbreaking pediatric research that's helping to find better treatments and cures for many devastating childhood diseases, so your donation helps ensure that the most precious members of our society - our children - receive the best possible care.

So, to help show support a proud and passionate team of fitness enthusiasts have gotten together to run this year's Whistler Alpine Meadows (WAM)!

The Event:

The WAM encompass all that Whistler and coastal British Columbia has to offer. Runners will be treated to expansive alpine meadows, raging waterfalls, blooming wildflowers, calving glaciers, dizzying suspension bridge crossings, pristine alpine tarns and over a dozen backcountry lakes, and that’s not to mention the 360 degree panoramic mountain views as far as the eye can see.

And, yet, the Whistler mountains are unforgiving if the distance and elevation are disrespected. It will be painful. It will be tiring. And it will make us want to quit. But, it is nothing compared to the challenges the children of BC Hospital face every single day, which will be fresh of mind once the going gets tough.

So, here we are with our team taking part in the following races over the weekend of 21st-22nd September 2019:

  • 110k runners kick off at 4am Saturday 21st and have a 30hr time cap to cover the distance, which includes 20,000ft of elevation (total ascent/descent):
    • Lee Hamilton
    • Cian Scott
    • Daniel Wales
    • Theron White
    • Stewart Wilkinson
  • 55k runners kick off at 6am Sunday 22nd and have a 12.5hr time cap to cover the distance, which includes 9,200ft of elevation (total ascent/descent):
    • Damien Duport
    • Clementine Renaud
    • Brian Roche
  • 25k runners kick off at 8am on Saturday September 21st and have a 6.5hr time cap to cover the distance, which includes 2,400ft of elevation (total ascent/descent):
