Those of you looking to create or fill a spot on a Race Team, this is the place to be.
Dedicated American River Trail bicycle rider looking to team up with a runner and kayaker for the up-coming Eppie’s Great Race July 16, 2016. I ride an average of 16 to 18 miles per hour but can ride with a group at 20 to 22 miles per hour. Contact me at email@example.com
Question regarding teams – how does it work with the 3-4 person teams? Is each person required to do one leg of the race or everyone must do at least part of every leg of the race?
Example – I can run 2 miles, bike 5 miles, kayak 1 mile OR I can run all 5.8 miles but no bike or kayak.
Any information would be great!
Pretty sure it’s the latter example. Each team member covers a specific leg of the race.
I’m sure you cannot do part of any single event but I am pretty sure you could do two complete events. Meaning there is no mid event hand-offs allowed but if you ran the entire running portion then jumped on your bike and did the entire bike portion that is allowable. It would be difficult logistically to run then somehow get to the kayak starting point at sunrise through the crowds in time to do that leg. So back to back legs are possible but not separate legs.
Kayaker looking for a team, I male, 58 years old, in decent shape, Semi experienced kayaker, going through a five day training session in the next month on the river over the course. I will have a fast boat provided for race day. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Becky, you do one complete leg of the race. The 4 person teams are only for tandem kayak division or tandem canoe, all others are three persons per team.
There is no “tandem kayak” this year
Actually there is a tandem kayak. The only changes from last year to this year is the addition of SUPs and deletion of the “sit on top” division.
Hi there…. I’m an extremely experienced SUP racer looking for a team… Could also run, but pretty slow runner…. Let me know if you need someone! Thx
Have Kayak, will paddle. I am not as trained up this year as I was last year, but can still do a respectable time in my Huki. See results for the 50+ Mens winning team last year. Thanks! -Cameron
Did you find a team? I have a couple of friends who are looking to create a team at the last minute and might need a kayaker
Looking for a cyclist for our Woman 50+ team. Our cyclist is unable to ride on Saturday. Hoping for a cyclist that can make the ride around 40 minutes.
Hello, I am a recent American River College graduate, now currently attending the University of Victoria, in British Columbia. I am back home for the summer logging those miles upon miles. Now looking to gauge my fitness in Eppie’s Great Race. I am a poor college student (like most) so I will run for money; in other words if someone pays for my spot on the team. Will run fast and beat most competitors if that’s what you want me to do. Can also run slow and buy you time to warm up (that last part is a joke). Last year ran approximately 31 minutes for for the 5.6 miles (about 5:35 per mile); hoping to best that this year.
Ideally we are looking for a 6o year old runner with good knees but it would be fun to be on the bike early and see how we do against the youngsters. 🙂 Both myself and the cyclist are past Eppies winners.
Let me know if you are interested.

I’m an experienced cyclist/racer. I would love to join a team and cycle. I have a TT bike. I mostly race road and time trials. I know the trail very well. I recently averaged 24.3 mph for 25 miles in the district champ TT. Im good to go if you need a cyclist! email@example.com
Team TIPIKNU looking for competitive runner. Our runner is now sporting a cast.
Did you get a runner for your team?
Is there a shuttle to take runners to the finish line after they’ve completed their leg of the race?
Anyone looking for a cyclist. I am experienced 52 year old road cyclist. I have raced and done eppies numerous times.
Hi Aaron! Yes, the site says there will be shuttles for runners to take you back to William B Pond at 9, 920 and 950 🙂
This is my first Eppie’s. I’m looking for someone to do a practice run with down the American River. I have a sit on top Kayak and I’d prefer to go with a buddy. text me if interested 916-764-4182.
For anyone who’s done the race before, do you know the logistics of how the bikers (in a relay team) make it back to the end? Do you coordinate with vehicles or do you ride back once you have clearance to?
Also, I know the river bend park is closed for parking, but do they let you in to load/unload supplies, or do you have to take it across William B Pond? I haven’t been able to get these answered from the staff so i wanted to throw it out to any previous racers 🙂
Kristin, every rider/team deals with that in different ways. Some teams have paddler drop cyclist of at sac state, and drive up and park, so cyclist has ride back waiting for them. My rider hops on out to Coloma and takes it to Folsom blvd, which is directly to park access road, Rod Beaudry. (maybe 5 miles) Some also have peeps waiting for them, to give rides.
They also claim to not allow peeps into river bend access, but pretend you didn’t read that, and do as needed.
Hope that helps. Unfortunate EGR staff seem to ignore people interested in racing, especially with entry numbers down to what they are….
Hey everyone, Iam a fast paddler and I don’t have a team. I can go in 60+category but, Iam competitive in any category. Work with Dan Crandall and John Weed at current adventures and we train anywhere from 60to80 people a year for eppies. I know the lines and am pretty darn fast. If you need a fast paddler give me a call…. @916-806-3259. Thanks… and good luck
I’m doing the race by myself. Can anyone help me with a few logistic questions?
1. After the run, do I need to have someone there to bring my bike to me?
2. Is there a designated area to put on bike shoes, helmet, etc… after the run and before you start biking?
3. At the end of the bike portion, do I need to have someone there to take my bike, shoes, etc?
4. do most people who do the race solo change their shoes after the bike portion or just run and kayak in their bike shoes.
“Ironpersons must have a crew to retrieve the bike. Members of the crew may only retrieve the bicycle from the bicycle storage area and must not otherwise assist the competitor at the exchange point.” – I wasn’t sure if this is referring to the beginning of the bike portion or the end of the bike portion.
I read the rules but I’m still a little confused on how the above work. Thanks to anyone who can help.
Saw your post and it brought me back tp my first race and all the questions I had at the time. So to answer your questions:
1. No you don’t need a crew person to bring your bike to you, you run to it. When you cross the timing mat after the run you still have about a 100 yard run to get to you bike and no one can assist you to do that. When you place your bike that morning before the race starts you leave your helmet, shoes (if you think you need bike shoes) and hydration with your bike and when you get to it after the run, you put on your helmet, etc and you are off but remember, you are on the clock from the starters gun until you cross the finish line so changing shoes slows you way down. I run, bike and paddle in the same shoes. I know there are some who do change into bike shoes but I’m not fast enough to do that.
2. Designated Area for bike equipment? You leave it with your bike. They have racks and racks set up for us to leave our bikes at and I leave all my equipment with my bike. So when I finish the run, I make the 100 yard run to my bike, put on my helmet, take a quick swig of water and I’m off.
3. End of bike portion question – when you reach the end of the bike section, there will be volunteers (thank you to all the volunteers!) that will take your bike and store it in a safe place (they are very protective of the bikes and do an excellent job of keeping them safe) and from there you run across the bridge to your kayak to continue the race. Since I don’t use bike shoes, I just jump off my bike and run to my kayak BUT I did see one person change their shoes once and it cost them time. If you do change you shoes at that point, you have to carry them with you (unless you can get them on your bike before they take it from you) but you will have to carry your paddle shoes too cause you can’t race barefoot and your boat is a couple of 100 yards away. There is a lost and found for unclaimed equipment at the end but I don’t go that route.
My biggest suggestion is to run, bike and paddle in the same shoes (unless you are really quick and can do it on the run) As I said, you are on the clock from the starters pistol shot until you cross the line at River Bend Park and every seconds counts!!!!! If you have any other questions (of if anyone has any questions) send me an email, I’m happy to help. I’ve been an ironperson for a few years but am no expert so if anyone else has suggestions, please post.
Happy racing to all and good luck!

I thought the same, but just went to sign up and website shows REGISTRATION CLOSED, which is BS.
This site doesn’t look like it gets a lot of traffic, but fingers crossed. If any relay teams are looking for a cyclist, let me know. I’ve been training fairly consistently, have a TT bike, and would love to do the race.

Hello – I got a team and find myself in need a biker and a paddler to make it work. I’m over 50 and have generally finished solidly mid-pack for my age group.
Please let me know if you are interested in joining me for the last Eppies.
I had promised three very dedicated Eppies participants at my work that I would register them, The team captain was on vacation and I didn’t have a chance to do it yet though I should have done it sooner. It then sold out without warning (at least I had no indication there was a chance of it selling out), and now these three great Eppies fans may not have a chance to participate in the very last Eppies ever due to my mistake. It is not their mistake it is mine and I am hoping to make it right for them. Is there anyone at all that has a team that might be considering cancelling that I can take over the spot with this team and reimburse you? I will talk to the Eppies group as well I just thought I might also appeal here, just in case there is someone that was thinking of backing out. If so please contact me at 916-708-1088 or email email@example.com. Thanks so much.
Anyone in need of a cyclist going down the home stretch? If so I’m a CAT 3 racer and willing to help a team meet their race/time goals.
I’m Scott and I am an Ironperon. I have done this race for several years (both as team and an ironperson) and I am full of lots of info (Plus I am full of Eppies pancakes! For those old timers, you’ll understand) Anyway, for all you first timers, ask me a question about anything on this race. It is TON OF FUN and if I can help make it more fun, let me know….. I have done it all (from placing my kayak at 5m to starting really, really late, I can answer your questions- and the best part….. it is free!!!!! (my opinion only!) The only question I have is…… please Eppies Family, lets do this one more time!!!!!!
I appreciate your willingness to help. I’m doing the iron person event for the first time this year. My biggest question is whether to wear my same running shoes the entire race or swap out at each stage? I’m looking to be as competitive on time as possible and bith scenarios present potential issues. If I used my same shoes, I was thinking of swapping out my clipless pedals for ones with toe clips (risk losing time on bike). If I swapped shoes, I was thinking of leaving my bike shoes clipped in and running barefoot to my kayak, where I would store some water shoes. What would your advice be?
We were very surprised to see the registration has closed ! We have been training very hard to participate as a team, would have been our fifth year. If anyone is considering withdrawing, or needs a kayaker, please let us know.
Can be reached at
still need a biker or paddler?
I can do either. I have done this event many times in the past.
Any suggestions to get a team biker back to River Bend Park? They can’t ride the trail back. First timer.
I don’t mean to be snarky, but ride the bike back to your car or wherever you can secure it. You don’t want to leave the bike in the event’s bike corral as they close it soon after the event is over and I think the remaining bikes are impounded to another location.
If anyone needs a kayak or bike rental for the race, check out https://www.gearmoapp.com.
The rules were kinda confusing…are paddles with blades on each end allowed?
The single blade paddle rule is for the canoe division. Kayaks use double bladed paddles (although the rules don’t seem to prohibit single bade paddles for kayaks, it would be very inefficient).
Thanks! After re-reading it and watching old videos of the race, that sounds correct. Thx!

Does anyone know when I can pick up my team race packets? I was out of town on Saturday.
Packet pickup is Friday, 7/20, from 4-7pm in River Bend Park
Could anyone recommend best practices for an ironperson support team? For instance, I’m trying to figure out when boats and bikes should be dropped off, practically speaking, and if one person can do it all. Thanks!
One person can do it. But if the one person is the competitor it is a very early morning.
Need to have the bike in place by 8 and the kayak by 8:30. Need to get to William Pond in time to park your car and walk to start line. Parking at Wm Pond gets very full and distant from the start line as 8 approaches, so don’t plan on getting there at 7:55 AM. If you start late it adds to your total time as it is a gun start (or has been in the past at least).
1st timer here. I’m our team’s paddler. I know to drop my boat between 5-8:30. I’d like to drive my car to the finish and leave it there. Question is: how do I get back to the start before my race time?
If anyone is looking for a female runner to run around 7 min/mile let me know!!
Does anyone know if we can pick up another person’s race packet? It doesn’t say on the website. Do we need copy of their ID, email confirmation, etc? Thx all!
Anyone looking for a Single Ironman entry, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for an adult mens spot. I would rather sell my registration spot so someone more interested in competing in this race (for cheap).

I have a Sac State parking permit for Saturdays. Is there anything stopping me from parking on campus and walking across Guy West Bridge to get to the bike starting point? First timer. Thank you in advance.
Does anyone know if Camelbacks are allowed? For running? Biking? Both?
Yes, camel backs are allowed, I use one every year! Good luck. Scott
