Tell us more about Epic Events – how long has the company been running events?

Epic Events has been around for over 10 years, starting with some small duathlons and sportives before expanding into trail races, aquathons, open water swims and then eventually the triathlons that everyone knows about today. Epic Events is the brainchild of Marc Laithwaite, owner of The Endurance Store and experienced triathlete. The ethos of the company has never changed despite the growth and popularity of the events. The aim is and always has been to make everyone feel welcome whether they be novice or elite competitiors and to maintain a friendly atmosphere and personal approach whether there be 1 competitior or 1000.

What events can we look forward to this year, and how can people take part?

There are 16 different events on the Epic Events calendar (more if you include the trail runs on the nightrunner and trail 26 websites). The events are varied with duathlons, triathlons, sportives and open water swims. Our newest event to the calendar this year is the EpicMan, a middle distance triathlon based from Halton Training Camp in Lancaster which we are looking forward to organising in June. It is a bargain at £60 and we hope it will end up being as popular as all our other events.

All the information for our events can be found on our website http://www.epicevents.co.uk as well as the links to enter which are found at the bottom of each event page.

You have events all in different locations, which is the most popular in the Epic Events calendar?

We have some real classics in the calendar that have been going for years. The likes of the Parbold Duathlon is a really fun and competitive opener to the season and sells out quickly every year. Horwich Triathlon is also a real favourite with everyone, even if the weather always seems to be cold and damp despite it being in May. The sportives are also extremely popular with the Cumbrian Cracker and the Eden Valley Epic being the key events that people seem to love. Ullswater swim seems to be a favourite with our open water swimmers. The freedom of being in Ullswater and having the backdrop of the mountains and Glenridding is fantastic.

How can readers contact yourselves if they have any questions before signing up?

Most of the answers to the more common questions can be found on the individual event pages on our website http://www.epicevents.co.uk. We can also be found on facebook under @epiceventsmanagement and twitter under @epiceventsltd. We have facebook event pages for all of our events where people can post up questions to us and other competitors. We update the event pages regularly with race information from t-shirt designs to special offers. We can also be contacted via email, events@epicevents.co.uk.
