The Order of the Hrimthurs

From the northern land of cold, ice and darkness come Hrimthurs (Old Norse “rime thurs”); a tribe of powerful Frost Giants. Strength, cunning and resilience are the way of the mighty Hrimthurs.

Among us today, the spirit of the Frost Giants lives on. Midwestern winter ultra racers show perseverance and power of a legendary scale. On those who complete the Tuscobia Winter Ultra (160 Mile), Arrowhead 135 and Actif Epica (any solo distance) in one season, we will confer The Order of the Hrimthurs.

The names in the Order will pass into the realm of legends, a process acknowledged with a special ceremony and award. Membership in this small but powerful tribe is a lifetime honour bestowed on incredibly few.

Email us at actifepica@gmail.com if you wish to learn more about the challenge and we will inform you with more information as available.
