BRING THE JOY OF CHRISTMAS TO LESS FORTUNATE CHILDREN
The PORC EPIC, to Benefit Toys for Tots in Northwest Florida is an annual event that the club has hosted since 2007. Plan to join us for an EPIC Ride and Run event to benefit local children in Escambia County Florida. This is an opportunity for off-road cyclists and runners to support the efforts of the USMC Toys For Tots while enjoying an EPIC ride or run on the best trails in Northwest Florida. The EPIC will take place on the University of West Florida's - West Campus trails and will be hosted at the Pate Road trailhead.
Registration is from 0700-0800 and ride/run from 0800-1300. There will be drawings for prizes at 1330 for those who complete the EPIC Challenge and a turnover of toy donations to the Marines so be sure to stick around for our annual group photo. Our sponsors give us great prizes for participants.
EPIC CHALLENGE - RIDE AND RUN
What's required to participate in the EPIC Challenge? Simply bring an unwrapped toy for a boy and a girl (the more the merry it's a toy drive after all), then set out on your EPIC ride or run. We have had groups in previous years completing 100 mile rides and 50 mile runs but we leave the EPIC up to you.
There will be four checkpoints on the trails with a special hole punch. You will be given a punch card with spaces to punch in at each checkpoint. If you find all four checkpoints and return your completed punch card to the PORC tent at the trailhead, you will be entered into the prize drawing. The more laps around the course you complete, the more opportunities you have to enter the EPIC Challenge.
First time joining us at the EPIC and not familiar with the trails at UWF? Be sure to take a look at the RIDE UWF Trails page for information related to the trail system including maps and recommended Trailforks mobile app to help you hit the trails.
