July 26th, 2019. Cable, WI – The Borah Epic held its seventh annual event this past June and welcomed a record number of riders in both the half and full race distances. For year seven, the Epic generated a $17,500.00 donation to benefit the CAMBA trails, which now totals $107,000.00 since the race was founded in 2013.
“Despite a year of significant changes to both the full and half Epic races, we were still able to meet our donation goals and pay tribute to the trails” said race founder, Chris Jackson. “A new course, wave starts, and a Cable finish line were just some of the changes the event took on in 2019, despite these challenges, race director Ben Welnak and his team put on an amazing event” added Jackson.
“We are very excited about the positive changes incorporated into this years Epic” said Ron Bergin, CAMBA’s executive director. “With the addition of wave starts and a Cable finish, we believe the event will only grow from here on out, continuing to be a primary fundraiser for CAMBA, we could not be more excited about the future of this event” added Bergin.
