The Race

The Race: Participants can choose from one of three options, the classic 125 km route (bike or run) or extended options of 162km (run) and 200km (bike) of sparkling winter biking and trail running across the Manitoba prairie on the historic Crow Wing Trail (part of the Trans Canada Trail) in southeastern Manitoba from Emerson to the heart of Winnipeg’s downtown.

Icy temperatures, windswept trails, big skies and huge landscapes will challenge ultra-endurance bike and running racers.  Actif Epica is a challenging ultra-endurance event in extreme trail and weather conditions promoting community and health benefits of communities in southeastern Manitoba.

The race bible provides information on the course, the rules and important details about the event.

Note: As of 2017 we are an ITI qualifier, to be eligible you must select either the 162km run or the 200km bike distance.
