Following Actif Epica Throughout the Day
We’ll be populating this page throughout the race, with real-time updates and commentary, so you can follow along with the action. Checkpoint volunteers, the organizing team and others will be feeding us information, reports and pictures to post here— so you’ll get a birds-eye view of the whole course!
We’ll be keeping an eye on Twitter and Instagram and reposting some things here. You can get our attention with shareable content by mentioning us @ActifEpica or using the hashtags #ActifEpica and #ActifEpica2017 on either platform. We won’t be monitoring Facebook.
Checkpoints & Timings
You can get a whole overview of checkpoint times in and out by going to this page. It will update in real time as checkpoints report in.
We’re at the finish line / Command Central ready to post updates as they come to us! Good luck to everyone out there. Living The Dream!
Interesting conditions out there this morning. We predict some parts of the route could be surprisingly fast, and other parts could be very slow. How will that affect overall progress? We’ll let you know!
Just got word that the Ridgeville folks started a bit late – 6:30 am instead of 6:00 am. But they’re all on the road now.
Emerson folks were only delayed a minute or 2 at the start but hit to road just after 7:00 am and are now on course. Pics to follow.
Update from out on the road:
The 200km racers are all approaching or going through Senkiw right now.
All the 120km cyclists are at or through St Pierre (some enjoying pea soup and bannock), runners are no more than 5k out. One runner #10 has left St.. Pierre already .
We’re not posting official times from Senkiw Bridge (a support point where water is available to racers, but not an official check point) but here is the latest info on all of the racers who started in Emerson and Ridgeville and are now through Senkiw: 10:35#54, 10:36#25#16, 10:58#1#11#59, 10:59#22#28,#36,#43, 11:02#12, 11:09#19, 11:14#56 #8 is falling off the back (it happens to the best of us).
Another update from Senkiw Bridge:
11:24#63, 11:27#58, 11:32#8. This means that all 162 km runners & 4 200 km cyclists are now over the bridge.
Just received word that Steven Sloat is on crown valley road riding in a t-shirt. Wow! And it’s muddy.
Appearnatly he’s periodically posting live video updates of his trek if anyone is friends with him on Facebook.
Final Senkiw Bridge update: 11:44 #29#51, 12:08#45#60#7, 12:17#40, 12:31#53
This means all racers are thru Ridgeville!
News from the floodway: Just had #20, #61, and #68 go past. Tough stretch to that point, but their pace should pick from there to U of M, and then on to the finish line at The Forks.
Senkiw update (we’re posting Senkiw Bridge updates here because it’s not an official check point so there’s no place to note these updates on the live Check Points and Timings sheet. For check point in and out times you can look there):
1:09#17, 2:03#38, 2:10#30, 2:15#21. 14, 46, &66 are left.
[…] Actif Epica is more than an ultra endurance race. It is a celebration of human resilience, of the unique landscape and culture of southern Manitoba, and a call to action– to get outside and have fun. Last year’s edition proved a great success. […]
