Final course recon

Below are a few pics of our final course recon, and a brief video that we just posted on Instagram.

The pics show what much of the course looks like at the time of this posting; small amounts of snow cover but recently plowed, some reasonably hard packed single track.

The video shows one of a handful of relatively short sections where there’s been a bit of drifting.

The forecast for Friday is miserable: 5 or so cm of blowing snow with winds gusting over 80 (!) km/h that day, so course conditions will likely evolve, but at the moment Saturday looks alright, starting out cold but warming to -9C in the afternoon, but with more snow forecast in the afternoon and evening.

Start List

Ladies and Gentlemen, your Actif Epica 2022 Start List:

81 participants in total, almost evenly divided (41 and 40) between cycling and running, and 18 women. While there isn’t (and doesn’t necessarily have to be) gender parity we’re happy to see that there’s enough critical mass to hopefully help make everyone feel welcome, because no matter how you identify, whether you’re doing a short or long distance, whether you’re fast, or….less fast, whether you have an entry level bike or one with carbon rims, and so on, we’re happy to host YOU!

See you on Race Weekend 🙂
