Actif Epica is a non-profit event put on by people who have a simple passion for cycling, running, adventure, and outdoor activity. We rely on a core of Co-Race Directors, a number of additional key volunteers (e.g. trail and race day committee members), the Crow Wing Trail Association, a few key sponsors, and a small army of general volunteers and who help with things like staffing our various race route CheckPoints and roving the course.
Without these volunteers Actif Epica would simply not exist. Thanks to all of them! If you’d like to help us by volunteering yourself please contact us for more info.
Scott has a background as a non-profit administrator and event director and as a collegiate runner. He’s also a certified fitness trainer and has a life long passion for cycling.
After years of volunteering for local events and later directing races, from relatively small, local cyclocross weekends to a World Junior Qualifier triathlon, Scott became involved with Actif Epica in its inaugural year as a CheckPoint volunteer with his wife Deanna. He’s since assumed a leadership role as a Co-Race Director and now in his 4th year helping direct the event he looks forward to continue building on a great foundation.
Deanna has a successful background in Provincial team sports and as a cyclocross champ in its early local years, and she can probably bench press more than you. Her professional background is as a biochemist and she’s currently Director of Quality Control for a biopharmaceutical company that specializes in addressing emerging natural and man-made biological and chemical public health threats.
Deanna has partnered with her husband Scott for years in helping bring athletic events large and small to the local community and has been involved with Actif Epica from the beginning. Now in her 4th year as a Co-Race Director she’s excited to practice a different type of quality control and to continue our annual tradition of Celebrating Human Resilience.
Dan not only has tons of race experience, he has tons of race win experience. As a winner of our own event and member of the prestigious Triple Crown club, having also done well in Tuscobia and Arrowhead, he’s an incredible asset as a Co-Race Director because he can really see things from a competitive perspective.
When he’s not putting in long miles on the bike and/or recon’ing our course he’s working on the less glamorous behind the scenes details to help make the next Actif Epica the best one yet.
