Yes, and in your case that should be pretty easy

You want to use RunPeriod:CustomRange.

As stated in the I/O reference guide for this object:

Begin Year

This numeric field should contain the beginning year for the custom range. Though all EnergyPlus (EPW) weather files contain a year/year field, the RunPeriod object does not use this field (previous object). The RunPeriod:CustomRange object causes the program to look specifically for the begin date specified by these three fields (i.e. Begin Month, Begin Day of Month, Begin Year).

You'll have to modify the .epw slightly to get it to work.
