This is no fun run. On Saturday, Feb. 13, racers from around the world will gather in Winnipeg to run or cycle a 125 km course – equivalent to more than two marathons – in the freezing cold.
Most athletes will take between 12 and 24 hours to complete the fifth annual ultra-endurance Actif Epica, but cyclists can choose to extend their race to 160 km.
The course takes racers from St. Malo to The Forks, where fans and passers-by are encouraged to come out and cheer on the participants. Course information, event rules and entry forms are available at actifepi. ca.
Support your stress away
The last workshop in the Lunch and Learn series will be on Tuesday, Feb. 9.
