The Heck Epic


We are back for 2018! This year, racers will travel between the North Shore towns of Two Harbors and Grand Marais, Minnesota. White and Red pines, Black spruce bogs, boreal forest streams and miles of wild roads will define the scenery. The Heck Epic is a solid two day challenge. For those looking to try this unique style of racing for the first time, The Heck Epic will be a perfect test. And for others that want to sharpen their skills for the Tour Divide, The Heck Epic will let you know where you stand in your preparation.

Please check sidebar navigation for details about camping, course, registration etc. 

This is a timed event. Each day will have its own finish time. The lowest combined times from Day One and Two will be declared the winner.

Day One, Saturday July 21: Riders depart from Two Harbors, MN on their way to Grand Marais, MN. Approximate distance 115 miles, mainly unpaved roads. All riders will sleep outside in Grand Marais on Saturday July 21.

Day Two, Sunday July 22: Riders will depart from Grand Marais back to Two Harbors. The route will be approximately 110 miles, mainly unpaved and also 80% different from Day One.

Join us for this special third edition. All riders will be required to carry and use their own sleep kit (e.g. tent, bivy, hammock, sleeping bag). Please see Rules and Guidelines for more information. And please feel free to contact Jeremy Kershaw at with further questions.
