The Epic 8 Hour Relay Series is all about the camaraderie, sportsmanship and the gritty, hard-core enjoyment of riding with friends. The Epic 8 Hour relay is a personal and team challenge to complete as many laps as possible. Whether riding just for fun, or vying for a podium spot in your category, the Epic 8 Hour will be a memorable experience. Using Ontario's premier Mountain Bike destinations and trails, the Epic 8 Hour Series promises the best in facilities, fun and varied courses, and support for riders.
The Epic 8 Hour takes place over a 8 hour time frame on a 10 km loop course which starts and finishes at the same location. The object is not to finish first, but to complete the greatest number of laps before the end of the event. There is a solo category for the hard cores, but most people do it as a (2 person, 3-4 person, or 5-6 person) team. Only one member of the team is on the course at any one time, in other words you take turns riding.
