On September 10th, I ran Whistler Alpine Meadows 100km. It was hands down the most difficult race I have ever done, but it was also the most epic finish I've ever been a part of!
I run with a pretty amazing group of women in the north shore, and my friends and I swept the podium! My training partner Katie Mills came first, I came second, and our friend Tara Holland came third! It was absolutely gruelling, and all three of us had stomach issues and threw up A LOT.
This race went up and down Whistler mountain 3 times for a total of 102km, and Ascent + Descent 6,000 m/20,000 ft in 16 hours and 29 minutes.
83 racers finished and 105 racers started. The cut off was 30 hours.
