Whistler Welcomes Subaru IRONMAN® Canada

Subaru IRONMAN® Canada triathlon is returning to Whistler on July 27, 2014. Whistler's natural beauty is the perfect setting for the race.

Last year's Subaru IRONMAN® race started with a two-loop swim in Alta Lake. Athletes had a lakeside transition before starting a one-loop bike course via the Sea-to-Sky Highway, Callaghan Valley and Pemberton. The two-loop run course utilized the Valley Trail, winding past Lost Lake and Green Lake before a triumphant finish adjacent to Whistler Olympic Plaza in the Village.  Whistler provides lots of events and activities around the race for athletes, family and  friends.

Athlete 2014 Registration:  Registration information is available on the Subaru IRONMAN Canada website.

Come see Subaru IRONMAN® Canada in action this summer, July 27 in Whistler.

Timex Bike Course

Athletes will enjoy a lakeside transition before starting a one-loop, 112-mile bike course that is comparable in difficulty to the bike routes at previous IRONMAN Canada venues. Athletes will travel south on the Sea-to-Sky Highway before climbing into the Callaghan Valley, site of the Nordic skiing events during the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. After descending back to the highway, athletes pass through Whistler on their way north to Pemberton. An out-and-back section allows athletes breathtakingly beautiful views of glaciated peaks, while racing on a completely flat section of road. Athletes then return to Whistler via the Sea-to-Sky Highway.
