What is the EpicMan?

The EpicMan is a one-of-a-kind Epic adventure. It is the inspiring (or insane) journey of two everymen – Will Thomas and Seth Bradbury - who will travel 163 miles in 24 hours, from an island in Portland, Maine to the finish line at the Boston Marathon in honor of sustainability and the Epic way of life. It is a kick-off to the 2009 Urban Epic event season; and it is going to be one wild and crazy ride.

Creating their own version of the Ironman, Will (a recovering Ironman) and Seth (a guy who doesn’t own a bike) will start on Peaks Island at 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 19th and kayak 2.4 miles to Portland, then bike 135 miles through the night to Hopkinton, Massachusetts, and finish running 26.2 miles in the Boston Marathon on Monday, April 20th. Along the way they will stop at parties and events in Maine, New Hampshire, and Mass. to celebrate their Epic journey with the community and refuel.

They will unite the two cities that host the Urban Epic events and all the adventurous, Epic individuals in between.

Their trip is all about the journey, and you have the opportunity to be there.

Dates, times, locations of the parties will soon come...stay tuned
