30, 2014 – (Breckenridge, Colo.) – Organizers of the Breck Epic MTB
Stage Race are pleased to name Breckenridge’s Beaver Run Resort as the
event’s official lodging partner and host property. The new partnership
signals a change in venue for the 7th annual 6-day mountain bike event,
slated this year for August 9-14. The Epic leaves its longstanding
headquarters at the Steven C. West Ice Arena behind to transition to a
consolidated venue at Beaver Run which borders vast tracts of open space
while still enjoying a central location with downtown Breckenridge just
a 3 minute walk from the property.

Grams Thoughts =>  I am really stoked that my buddy Mike McCormack (Breck Epic race director) got this partnership going with Breckenridge’s Beaver Run Resort. It will improve an already excellent race and take things to the next level. The racers, their friends and families, the race volunteers and organizers, and the viewing public will all have a superb venue for the race platform.  I am looking forward to covering the race when it rolls around this coming August.

quality of our course at the top of the list of elements that make the
Epic unique, but our centralized cloverleaf format is a close second,”

riding the best trail system in the Rocky Mountain region without
worrying about transfers or travel logistics.”

“The move to Beaver
Run amplifies that distinctive element of our event,” continues
McCormack, “They provide enhanced lodging and dining opportunities for
our race community and an incredible base of operations for riders
traveling with families.”

Resort is excited to partner with Breck Epic and to offer its racers and
supporters a variety of lodging options,” states Beaver Run Resort

including centralized meeting locations, on-site dining options and a
full service spa will enhance the Breckenridge experience for the Epic’s
