Eppie's Great Race July 19, 2014
The 41st annual "Eppie's Great Race" - known as "The World's Oldest Triathlon" - is scheduled for Saturday, July 19, 2014.
The first "Eppie's Great Race" post-Eppie Johnson's passing in 2013, the 41st Annual Eppie's Great Race will include both the traditional event, as well as special tributes, events, and fun memorabilia celebrating Eppie Johnson's life and his community contributions such as, "Eppie's Great Race" (EGR), and the "Eppie's Kids Duathlon." However, new, modern elements have also been added to this year's EGR, such as new technology and updated EGR sports gear, to provide a better and more fun experience for the participants and fans. Organizers also are proud to report that the 2014 EGR will remain on its traditional, American River Parkway racecourse, due to positive spring rains and American River water flow projections for July.
While the 41st annual Eppie's Great Race will remain the same, fun race enjoyed by tens of thousands of people worldwide, the EGR Committee has added new, modern elements to the 2014 event, such as timing chips and new technology allowing participants to post via social media their registration, training, times during transitions on the course, and a short video of them crossing the EGR Finish Line! Additionally, EGR will be introducing its first, inaugural EGR Cycling Jersey and special, modern fit running t-shirts and tanks for participants.
Both teams and/or individuals can compete in EGR divisions from "Junior," to "Iron Person," 14 - 70 years and older. The EGR participants run 5.82 miles, cycle 12.5 miles, and paddle boats 6.35 miles, on a racecourse located on and alongside the American River Parkway. Proceeds from EGR fund recreational programs for the disabled throughout Sacramento County. EGR volunteers, sponsors and potential exhibitors, as well as race participants, are encouraged to check http://www.eppiesgreatrace.org, to sign up or receive more information.
