We will have a 50 km, 100 km and 150 km human-powered winter race in the Caribou Hills on the most scenic trails you will find. Ski, bike, or run. The race is capped to 100 participants, so don't miss your chance. Weather permitting, we will have a pisten bully groomed trail, suitable for skate-skiing.

Time Limit: 24 hours

Want a challenge, want to see the spectacular course, but don't want to race or be timed? No problem, do the Epic as a 30 mile tour (use "30 mile" option during sign-up). Same rules, gear, and conditions as for the race.

The route starts and ends at McNeil Canyon Elementary School and follows the Anchor River to the Caribou Lake Trailhead ("Blue Shed" Parking Lot), then heads to Caribou Lake and returns to McNeil Canyon Elementary School via the Matthew's Hill trail. More information on the route, including a map, Google Earth, and GPS info is available here. The 50 km route will complete the loop once (counter-clockwise) and the 100 km route will complete the route twice (counter-clockwise).
