In our last blog post, we discussed how to rediscover your love for running if you find yourself stuck in a rut. We all lose motivation at times and one of our favourite ways to get excited about running again is to run with a friend or join a running group. When your friends are on different schedules, it can be tough to find a time that suits everyone and your good intentions can quickly become derailed.
That's why we're excited to invite you to join us on our free daily trail runs! Every day this summer, one of our run leaders will be waiting for you at our Alpine Demo Centre in Whistler at 8am, ready to guide you through the network of beautiful local trails that can be found right on our doorstep.
These runs are designed to suit all abilities, and aim to be fun and social group runs where you can meet new running friends and experience some of the beautiful local trails. We'll run for between 45 minutes and one hour and finish up back at the Alpine Demo Centre.
New to Whistler or just visiting?
If you're visiting or have just arrived in Whistler, running with us is a great way to enjoy the trails without having to stop and navigate regularly or worry about getting lost. We're lucky to have such a varied selection of trails, from fast and flowy to steep and technical, but the best of these can be tricky to find! they can Our leaders are all passionate trail runners, who are excited to share their knowledge of the trails as well as races and other running events in the Sea to Sky corridor, so it's the perfect opportunity to experience our favourite trails and find out more about how you can get involved in the local running community.
Join our Facebook group, Escape to the Trails, to meet our run leaders and stay up to date on what's going on in our running community. Trail running is growing increasingly popular in the Sea to Sky, and when you experience some of our local trails, you'll see why!
Escape Route Alpine Demo Centre is located at 7-4433 Sundial Place, Whistler, V0N 1B4 (Beside The Keg Restaurant)
