Had enough of the babbling on this site (but think you might be able to stand us for 6 days?)
Ready for 2021? I like the fire in your belly, kid. Race dates are Aug 15-20, 2021). Super-duper-extra-rad-early bird pricing available!
You a planner, Billy? Get after that early bird discount – the best value in MTB stage racing doesn’t get any cheaper than this. Pricing has several date-based levels, please see below for tha deets.
All SCHWINGED(!) out for 2021? Judging from email volume as of late April in 2019, the answer is yes, yes you are. If you need to set a goal and set it early, we’ll step up and help you commit. REGISTER FOR EPIC 2021.
Available until 9pm on Saturday, August 14 at 9pm. 3-day riders participating in stages 4-6 may register until 8pm on Tuesday, August 17.
COVID NOTES: we’re processing a LOT of deferrals due to the pandemic. We needed a place to put those folks, so opened 2022 registration early. A couple of things about that.
FIELD LIMITS; next year’s event will be field limited to just 400 riders on course each day. That’s enough people for the race to feel magical, yet not so many that it damages our trail system. We don’t want our riders to feel crowded out there. It’s important that each of them find the moments of solitude necessary to fully appreciate the experience and the incredible beauty of the course.

Refunds and Cancellations
We’ll refund anyone in full for any reason whatsoever up to 120 days out (so for 2020, April 16, 2021). If your plans change or life gets in the way after that, we can offer you a deferral that’s valid for up to two years OR the ability to sell your entry. We will likely sell out. We can help you move your entry once we get on a list. There are no additional fees for any of these three contingencies, but please be aware that the modest processing fee charged by the registration site is non-refundable.
