Whistler Spirit Run Gets Exclusive Access to Olympic Park for Charity Running Event

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 10, 2009) - Event organizers are gearing up for the 2nd Annual Whistler Spirit Run & Festival, a two-day cross country and trail running event in support of KidSport(TM) BC. The September run, taking place on the 26th and 27th at Whistler Olympic Park, will host a competitive series of races on the Saturday for runners of all ages and a 10K trail running race on the Sunday.

With the Olympics in Vancouver quickly approaching, on September 1, 2009, access to the newly developed Whistler Olympic Park in the Callaghan Valley will be closed to the public as teams lay the groundwork for the much anticipated event. The Whistler Spirit Run offers participants not only a chance to visit the venue after this time, but to experience it first hand.

According to Peter Diemer, President, Callaghan Valley Sport & Cultural Society, "It's the only running event on site before the Olympics and it will provide runners of all levels with a chance to be a part of a world-class competition."

Participants are encouraged to register online before September 20, 2009 at www.whistlerspiritrun.com.
