Who Runs EPIC?
EPIC Canadian is run and managed by the Chestnutts!
EPIC was the dream of Owner and Race Director, Tim Chesnutt. Tim and his wife Stacy (Race Director, Sole Sisters Women’s Race Series) wanted to create a venue for long distance triathletes right here in Nova Scotia, after seeing talented local athletes need to travel the world to compete. The idea began as a one-time training day for local athletes preparing for the Mont-Tremblant, Quebec triathlon – but after mapping courses and talking with local athletes, the interest of making this event a full race grew. “Creating a venue, where we can celebrate our own athletes at home, I think is a reward in and of itself, and part of me just thinks it’s cool. These events are cool.”
Stacy is now the race director for EPIC Canadian, but Tim is never far away!
