Actif Epica organizers partner with the Crow Wing Trail Association and the communities along the Trail to promote southeastern Manitoba and the health benefits associated with outdoor activity in winter.
What's Actif Epica? It's a challenging self-supported ultra-endurance event in potentially extreme trail and weather conditions. This race has been taking place on the Crow Wing Trail every Louis Riel Long Weekend since 2012! In 2018, 70 participants registered to either bike or run their chosen distance. See results on their website.
Cyclists and runners wishing to qualify for the Iditarod Trail Invitational in Alaska start in Emerson (200km) and in Ridgeville (162km) respectively. A ‘shorter distance’ option starts in St. Malo (125km).
