EVENT DETAILS    

The Dauphin Rotary Club in partnership with Parks Canada is excited to bring you Epic East Gate! The only Ultra event to be held within the confines of Riding Mountain National Park.   Beginning at the Historic East Gate just 15 minutes from Mcreary, Manitoba, the 50km figure 8 course and 25 KM single loop course, will have elevation gains of >1000M and >500M respectively and EPIC views from the iconic Little Bald Hill that will have you quickly forget that you are in the heart of the Prairies while the flowy, single track, technical descents of Reeves Ravine will have you convinced you found a slice of big mountain running.

PARKING

THERE IS PARKING NEAR THE START/FINISH LINE.  Initially we thought we would be required to shuttle racers to and from the start line.  That is not the case, we are currently working on two separate options for parking, but we are confident that 1 or both will work out and that we will avoid needing to shuttle racers, obviously this solves a whole host of issues!  On Race Day make your way to the Historic East Gate off along Highway 19 and there will be directions for parking.

*****NOTE**** Highway 19 through RMNP is soft and rutted this time of year.  If coming from Clear Lake, the slightly longer but quicker option will be to go south through Erickson and take Provincial Road 357 West to Highway 5 and then North to the East Gate turnoff.
