Kidsworx XC

We’re back with another adventure in the trails of Whistler.  The Kidsworx XC will give  young riders the chance to work their gears and test their strength in the world famous Whistler Valley Trail network.  Course length will vary slightly based on age with each age group facing a more challenging ride than their younger counterparts. Previous courses have been through the Blackcomb trails from Base 2 and the trail network by the Cheakamus River from Cheakamus Crossing.


Online registration will open on Tuesday May 17 at 10:00 PDT
Registration Deadline: Registration has been extended to Wednesday August 9 at 23:59 PDT (unless race sells out in advance).  There will be no onsite registration.

Race plate pick up will be on site. If you have a Kidsworx plate, it’s the same for all Kidsworx events.

The first page requires a parent/guardian to create an ‘Athlete Profile’ for themselves. THEN scroll to the bottom of the page and click ADD in the section marked “Manage Additional Athletes”. You will then create a profile for each child you wish to register for events.

 Please use the same athlete profile to register for all Kidsworx events.
