Eppie's Great Race (and its Foundation) has been implemented each year as a fundraising event benefiting programs that support mentally- and physically-challenged people. Proceeds from the annual Eppie’s Great Race entry fees and EGR Foundation have resulted in more than $1 Million to support Northern California's disabled community, accounting for over 20% of Sacramento County's overall budget for these programs. “Eppie’s Great Race” — known as “The World’s Oldest Triathlon” — allows both teams and/or individuals to compete in divisions from “Junior,” to “Iron Person,” 14 - 70 years and older. The Eppie’s Great Race participants run 5.82 miles, cycle 12.5 miles, and paddle boats 6.35 miles, on a racecourse located on and alongside the American River Parkway. Eppie’s Great Race also annually implements a “Kids’ Duathlon,” a 2.5 mile run, and a 6 mile bike ride; where children can train with their families, and compete in their own race, while preventing the health crisis' of childhood obesity and inactivity. Race event volunteers, event sponsors and potential exhibitors, as well as race participants, are encouraged to check http://www.eppiesgreatrace.org, to sign up or receive more information.
