I enjoyed a fabulous girls weekend with my sister & a friend where we stayed at the Pan Pacific Village Centre (right in the heart), a sponsor for the Whistler Spirit Run.

Nothing wrong with a little relaxation, a little shopping, lots of laughs, fabulous food, wine,  live music & finishing off with a relay run on Sunday afternoon which took place at Whistler Olympic Park, the real reason we went up in the first place.

That's the Spirit!

Since its inception 6 years ago, The Whistler Spirit Run has attracted people of all ages and built strong relationships. The run, part of the Vancouver Sun Run Series and Lower Mainland Cross Country Series, is a Cross Country and Trail running event featuring something for everyone. It is the realization of the late coach Frank Reynolds’ vision to have a mass participation cross country event while encouraging and supporting British Columbia high school and University athletes through charitable donations and scholarship programs.whistler5

It consists of cross country events of various distances for school and club teams, a fun 4x2KM team relay and individual competitive races with substantial prize money.

Sign me up again next  year!

I must recommend Sushi Sen in Squamish for fresh + unique rolls.
