Event Details

Actif Epica 2017 will be on February 18.

Taking part in an ultra endurance event is serious business. Please make sure you’ve read The Actif Epica Race Bible before completing your application.

Completing one of the below accomplishments would typically qualify an entrant for this year’s Actif Epica; however, entry is not guaranteed. The race directors reserve the right to change the rules in the interest of safety and sportsmanship or for any reason deemed appropriate by the race officials.

The race directors reserve the right to select entrants based on other important considerations, as well as due to the requirements of insurers and regulatory agencies. Basically, we look for both endurance and cold weather experience. Below are general guidelines.

Qualifying activities for runners:

  • Accepted entry into previous edition of Actif Epica.
  • Finishing 50-mile foot race or completed multi-sport event.

Qualifying activities for cyclists:

  • Accepted entry into previous edition of Actif Epica.
  • Finishing 24 hour bike race, with minimum of 100 miles completed for off-road, or 200 miles on road.
  • Finishing Tuscobia (75 mile), Arrowhead or a similar challenging type of winter event.

Other combinations of winter and adventure experience may be considered. Not sure if you qualify? Contact us – let’s discuss it.

Iditarod Trail Invitational:

If your goal is to qualify for the Iditarod Trail Invitational, you must choose either the 200 km option (bike) or 162 km option (run).

Relay Options:

Because the much lower intensity of the relay options, there are no specific requirements for entry. That said, we do look to see that team members are reasonably prepared. As with all registrations, the race directors reserve the right to select entrants based on safety considerations and insurance requirements. Relay options are only available for the Classic (120km) Distance.

PLEASE NOTE: Online Registration Payment is handled via Stripe through The Distillery Creativity and Consulting. A 5% service fee is included to cover processing costs. No Stripe account is necessary for payment processing.
