Hope you had a great summer. Hard to believe it’s only four months till Actif Epica 2014, eh? Actif Epica is back on February 15th, 2014. We’re...
For the third year in a row, racers from around the world will gather in the frozen winter landscape of North America’s geographic centre—Winnipeg, Manitoba. While they’re here to bike or run 130 km of unforgiving temperatures, brutal winds and bare landscapes, they’ll be treated to a full-on celebration of human resilience, community spirit and fun, embraced by people just like you. The Forks is hosting our finish line again this year, complete with activities to celebrate human resilience all afternoon and into the evening.
Ok, folks – get ready! Real winter has hit Manitoba, and it’s time. Time for winter. Adventure. Fun. Large, furry (wooly?) Maniyetis. Actif Epica.
Step 1: turn the volume up to 11.
Step 2: hit play on the video above…
Now that we’ve got that covered – ARE YOU READY FOR ACTIF EPICA?
With over 50 participants registered (and counting), this is going to be our most exciting year yet.
Coming up on Tuesday, December 17th, 7:30 p.m. at race sponsor Olympia Cycle & Ski 1813 Portage Avenue we’re holding a get together to help with the readiness. If you’re new to the winter ultra scene or experienced but keen to talk shop, gather tips and share wisdom you’ll want to be there. We’ll talk gear and training, with lots of time for Q & A. All are welcome, whether you plan on participating this year, or just want to learn more for someday.
Hope to see you there!
Wowsa! It was just over two weeks ago that we put up the Race Roster page with 10 registered. As of now, there are 40. We are unbelievably happy with the interest in Actif Epica this year. Maybe it has something to do with all the media attention around last year’s event. Maybe it has something to do with just how much fun everyone had last year. Whatever the reason, thank you! Here are some numbers:
It’s a real mix of newcomers, return challengers, ages and personalities. Early bird registration may be over, but it’s not too late to join in! If you’re considering it, now’s a great time to register.
We’re pleased to announce that Vital Transit is once again an Actif Epica partner and will be providing shuttle service for racers to the start line in St. Malo. The shuttle is included as part of your entry fee. Departing from the Forks at 5:15 a.m. (sharp!), the warm and comfortable shuttle buses will have runners at the start line with time to spare before their start at 7 a.m. Cyclists will have ample time to unpack their bikes from an enclosed trailer and get gear sorted before their start at 8 a.m. Free parking for the day will be available at the Forks for those who’d like to leave their personal vehicle there.
Thank you Vital Transit for your support!
