Welcome to Actif Epica! It’s a new year, a new winter, and soon, a new edition of Actif Epica. The backbone of Actif Epica is a 130km voyageur-style ultramarathon challenge. On February 16th, runners and cyclists will tackle the prairie winds on the Crow Wing Trail between St. Malo and Winnipeg. This year, we’ve added a 2-person relay (65km each) option for the ultramarathon that offers a full-scale challenge in a smaller package.
Alongside the ultramarathon are community-based “Co-Actif” events. These events come in all shapes and sizes: from community-sized formal celebrations like the Niverville Winter Family Fun Day to informal pick-up hockey games or family-sized sledding outings. Last year’s event featured 14 co-actif events with more than a thousand participants (wow!).
With fun, friends and active living, winter in Manitoba is a great time of year. Actif Epica celebrates our unique seasonal assets with diverse outdoor activities and an exciting ultramarathon challenge. See you out there!
