More September Activities in Pemberton + Area!
With only a few weekends of September left, there's still tons of outdoor events being put on in the Sea-to-Sky Corridor. There seems to be no shortage of activities for tourists and locals alike this fall with art events, live music, and beer festivals happening seemingly everyday. But if you need a break from swirling wine and mingling we would suggest these upcoming outdoor activities!
The CycloCross; part mountain bike race and part cross-country grind, is in a category all its own. Coming to Whistler this September 24th and 25th, competitors will come together in Creekside for two days of speed, strength, endurance. Come out and watch all the action of British Columbia's growing CycloCross scene, CycloCross Whistler 2015.
Also happening on the 24th, the famed mud puddle obstacle course created by women, for women is returning to Whistler. This year Mudderella Whistler features challenging new obstacles and even more opportunities for contestants to work together. Come cheer on participants or join in yourself and work up a sweat while enjoying the view from Whistler's world-famous Blackcomb Mountain. And at the end of the day, everybody's invited to convene in Whistler Village for drinks and stories.
Tired of running around? Would you like to see some of the most beautiful British cars that BC has to offer? Well the 24th is your chance to catch a glimpse of these roadsters parading through town. They start in North Vancouver and make their way down to Whistler's Olympic Plaza where the cars will be on display until 3:30pm. You'll definitely want to swing by this car show if you're in the village or have any interest in cars.

A race not for the faint of heart, this is one of the most scenic trails you'll ever run! Starting in 1985, the Rubble Creek Classic is one of the Sea-to-Sky's longest running (running) events. Participants have been using this course for years as an annual rite of passage to finish off the season. The course has seen erratically different conditions each year and has no assistance stations, which only adds to it's infamy. Limited to 80 runners, the registration may already be closed but there's plenty of room to cheer on the contestants (which is probably more in our skill-set anyways)!

Well folks, this is set to be another outdoor-lover's weekend. Make sure to clear your calendars and stretch, we'll see you out there!
