What is the criteria to be considered an Epic Race?


Not sure exactly… Maybe something that people consider a bucket list event. Would you like to add an event?


I’m looking at doing The Punisher on August 4th…116 mile race with 11,000+ feet of climbing. The last 7.5 miles is a 3,672’ climb averaging 9.5%. It is a USAC sanctioned event, but they have a citizen option for those that don’t want to officially “race.”


Very cool. Sounds hard. Maybe I should create a subcategory called “Road Races” where people can talk about these longer road races… Like BWR, the “Punisher”. Love the name by the way.
