It’s the end of an era. Eppie’s Great Race is going from a triathlon to a bye-athlon, turning aerobics into ne’er-obics, going from exercise into ex-exercise. To be clear, this is the final year of the event. For 45 years, talented competitors have flocked to the American River for this day of running, riding and kayaking. Registration has ended, but you can still go out and cheer on the athletes—one last time. 5700 Arden Way in Carmichael, eppiesgreatrace.org.
