The Course

Breck Epic is one of the most demanding races in Breckenridge.
Breck Epic Riders at the starting line.

The event is unique in that it employs a cloverleaf format; each loop starts and finishes within a mile from downtown Breckenridge and utilizes the sprawling network of trails in both Summit and Park Counties. The six stages that compose the Epic are a well-rounded rider’s dream. Long middle-ring climbs and endless big-ring mashing descents.
