September Welcomes Endurance Events to the Sea-to-Sky Corridor

Wanna race? Well this September is perfect for you then! There's tons of marathon events coming to the Sea-to-Sky Corridor this month and with the weather finally cooling down, it's a great time to start thinking about those long autumn jogs. From Pemberton's Barn Burner Triple to Mudderella Whistler September brings a variety of outdoor running, hiking, and endurance activities.

Whistler GranFondo

RBC GranFondo Whistler

Saturday September 10th

The RBC GranFondo returns to the Sea-to-Sky Corridor! For one day, Highway 99 the best possible cycling road, is closed to traffic and turned into 122 km bike riding challenge from Vancouver to Whistler. 

Before you is an epic route with challenging climbs and thrilling descents. All you have to do is concentrate on the beauty around you. You're feeling fit and you're lined up for a huge ride with thousands of your fellow cyclists. You can ride whatever pace you want, it's not a race so there's no pressure. And no matter what pace you choose, you're likely to be riding alongside some of the thousand so participants. 

The scenery is better than you could ever see in a magazine. Plus as an added bonus, the ride ends with a massage and a party, where everyone's invited. This is an amazing opportunity to check out the stunning scenery of the Sea-to-Sky Corridor at a leisurely rate!
