Popular Sacramento area triathlon, Eppie’s Great Race, announces the recent overhaul of its website, a new logo and an expanded social media presence. The website (www.eppiesgreatrace.org) takes a one-stop-shopping approach with registration and race information all in one place. The integrated registration system featured on the new site is powered by the NGIN website platform that turns the process into a positive, efficient and secure online experience for all participants.
Multimedia and printable detailed maps educate participants about the racecourse and how best to prepare for competing in the run-bike-paddle triathlon. The website also highlights the unique specialized programs offered by the event’s beneficiary, Sacramento County Therapeutic Recreation Services (TRS).
“There are a lot of changes we’re implementing as we prepare for next year’s 40th anniversary of Eppie’s Great Race,” said Eppie Johnson, race founder. “Our primary goal of the new website is to enhance the experience of race participants whether they are first-time competitors or seasoned athletes.”
Increased visibility on social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter is encouraging easy communication between Eppie’s Great Race staff and athletes. The new logo is being incorporated in all Eppie’s Great Race marketing and communications for a contemporary, clean and cohesive feel to the 39-year-old paddling triathlon.

Registration is open for Eppie’s Great Race and Kids Duathlon that take place on July 21, 2012, along the American River Parkway in Sacramento and Rancho Cordova. Eppie’s Great Race is a fundraising event benefiting Sacramento County Therapeutic Recreation Services (TRS) that provides socialization, outings and support for individuals with various disabilities that reside in the greater Sacramento area. To date, Eppie’s Great Race has raised nearly $1 million for TRS.
