February 27, 2016 introduced the first day to register for the EPIC Israel mountain bike race and marathon to be held September 29-October 1, 2016. The exciting three day MTB (mountain bike racing) stage race includes vigorous and incredibly beautiful routes in northern Israel. The track is designed for professional bikers or anyone who loves to ride bikes for hours on end, with the average distance 75-110 km traveled each of the three days. Any participants will enjoy a luxurious stay at Hotel Galilion, located in the Upper Galilee Council region. Nutritious meals and all needs of bikers will be met with their inclusive registration package. In addition to the bike race, a one-day marathon will be held on the last of the three days, October 1, 2016 as a celebratory ending. With three distances to choose from including short, medium, or long, there is a race that accommodates anyone’s needs.
The inspiration behind Epic Israel is Giora Tsachor, a beloved rider who died in an accident during one of his morning rides. EPIC Israel says, “Giora’s heritage of completing successfully and professionally unique challenges and targets combined with love for nature and Israel, is embodied in the event and its unique character. Epic Israel is committed to provide a full support to participants from registration all the way through finish line, to assist with the preparation to this unique challenge and to create optimal conditions for registered riders to finish as proud ‘finishers’.”
This rewarding race will include families, friends, supporters, and any new “finishers.” This race and marathon not only offers you an extreme-sporting experience, but it also is an amazing opportunity to see Israel’s natural beauty. The truly satisfying event is a great time to experience true Israeli culture, while meeting and riding with more than 1000 riders from all over the world.
