Camping will be provided for each racer from the night of Day Zero until the morning of Day Eight at our base camps. Before and after these dates, racers will need to provide their own accommodations.
Racers will be issued a 4-person sized tent to share with another racer and a minimal foam pad. The tent will set up/taken down for you as we move through the event.
Our base camp locations are chosen for a variety of reasons including proximity and access to local amenities. We will also have a rotating selection of food vendors post-race at each location.
Over the last few years, we have developed a one-of-a-kind medical program to effectively manage the challenges of an epic race in our Coastal Mountain terrain. Comprised of paramedics, nurses, and doctors, our highly trained and professional Medical Team members are ready to respond to any incidents on or off the course.
You’ll be putting in long days and demanding a lot from your bodies. We will have top-notch sports massage therapy, physiotherapy, and Chiropractor treatments available to pamper you. We are able to offer you the highest standard of care, and utilize the most up-to-date techniques to treat injuries effectively. The qualified RMT’s, who understand your body can hurt for a variety of reasons, will develop the just the right treatment for you - it’s important to find the root cause and not just where the pain is. We also know that collaborating with you is key to your recovery-it strengthens your performance, helps you enjoy your experience and will keep you on your bike for the week for a strong finish in Whistler.
