In order to end any confusion or rumours.......Yes there is a slight change in the Epic 125/250 Bike course. The change occurs after the right turn on 46 (Cascade Lake Hwy) coming out of Cultus Lake. Instead of a VERY lengthy out and back on 46, we have shortened each (125/250) out and back and when coming back from the turnaround, ALL bikes will turn right on 42 and then left on FS4270 (toward Crane Prairie Resort), then left on 40 and right back onto 46 (Cascade Lakes Highway). The Epic 250 turnaround is 9.5 miles past where 42 intersects 46 and the Epic 125 Turnaround is 1.5 miles past 42. I assure you that this change is more scenic, safer and does not change the elevation profile. I apologize for any confusion but the change was needed and recently confirmed.
Also, I have seen the talk about clothing and the morning temps and I hope this helps....The Special Needs bag station will be located at the aid station for Mile 40/70. This is the same aid station. It is located at the intersection of FS 40 and FS 4270. You will pass it twice. We will allow you to stop, dismount and put clothing in your bag if needed. Your bag will be brought to the Finish for you to claim with your T1 and post race gear bag. The special needs bags are for the Epic 250 only.
Be sure to review the rules in the Athlete Guide. They differ from past Leadman events.
Thanks for your patience! See you on Race Day!!
