Epic Races knows a thing or two (or a thousand) about putting on races and events. This Ann Arbor-based race management company, co-founded by endurance athlete Eva Solomon, is behind a slew of running and cycling races and triathlons held throughout southeast Michigan each year. These range from the flagship event Tri Goddess Tri (my very first triathlon!) each June to the popular Battle of Waterloo, Swim to the Moon, Ugly Dog Triathlon, Hot Cocoa Classic, and many more, including virtual runs and races.

To listen to this episode, click on the player at the top of this post. Or, download (and subscribe!) to the Michigan Runner Girl Show using your favorite podcast app.

Eva, who has been on the show several times, returns with Pat Ball, Epic Races’ community outreach director and former Detroit Free Press Marathon race director, to share what we can expect from summer and fall races coming up. She also talks about last month’s 11th annual Tri Goddess Tri (and I give a shout-out to a couple of Michigan Runner Girls who took on their first triathlon at this June event near Chelsea, Mich.) Eva also talks about her training for next month’s IRONMAN 70.3 Traverse City.

This fall is the American Home Fitness Women Run the D Half Marathon, 10K & 5K on Belle Isle. Eva shares the updates to this event, which takes place on Sunday, Sept. 15 this year. There’s a discount code for this race — and every other Epic Races taking place this year — that is shared as well. Use the code 2019MRG10 to take 10% off your race entry. Check out the races here »
