Who knows?

I also am trying to find current info. Last year I think it was at the end of July and there seemed to be a good turn out, so I imagine it will be on again. Cycling Utah magazine has it slated, with a question mark, for July 28th. The Brian Head Chamber of Commerce has it on their calander for Aug 25-26. Aug 25th is the E100 in Park City, so I hope it is in July.

I just got off the phone with the Brianhead COC.....it looks like it IS happening....and Aug 25th is the day.

Apparently it's still put on by Team Big Bear....which means that it will be unorganized as hell......but at least it's still happening.

I'll be there.

Why do you think TBB will do a bad job?

The last 2 years I have raced the Epic 100 I thought the race organization was top notch.
1. Course markings were 100% obvious and easy to follow.
2. Aid stations had tons of selection (Gatorade gu's sandwhiches, cookies, etc), and were well positioned on the course.
3. Lots of voulenteers with radios keeping track of all the racers
4. Announcer at the start and finish calling out names of finishers.
5. Dinner the night before and after the race.
6. Race started on time both years
7. Regestration was easy to find and open late and early. Did not take a long time (thank-god I hate lines.)

I have done several supported endurance races and the epic 100 always seemed well ran to me.

The race itself is awesome and well supported. No complaints there. My comment was directed towards the fact that there is confusion every year in regards to this race. Is it happening?...if soo what's the date?.....will last years results ever be posted?.....this type of stuff.

I try to have my plans laid out in late winter for the whole season. When it's almost April and you don't know what date a race is gonna fall on......makes it kinda tough to plan for.

Otherwise....no complaints:)
