GPS map/iPhone app directions

Spectators: Follow the race live on Facebook or Twitter!

The Sheyenne National Grasslands, just outside of Fargo, ND, is home to an almost exactly 50 km section of the North Country trail, that winds across grasslands, rolling prairie, and the surprisingly rugged 'sand-hills'. After running it last spring, Grant Mehring and I decided it would be a good addition to the END series of events.  Of course we had to make it a little tougher, so we set the date as the last weekend of winter!

A winter Ultra!  Awesome! New Update - 2 person relay category is now available!

Details: Racer Updates via our Facebook event page.

Date:  March 16, 2013

Cateogories:  Full 50 K, 2 person relay team.

Event Cap:  75 total participants

Location: Sheyenne National Grasslands, approx. 45 minutes SW of Fargo, ND.  Here's a Map.

Relay details: Each RELAY participant (2 person teams only) will be charged the normal registration fee minus $10. This means that relay teams registering before March 1st will pay $80 total, or $40 per person.  Why not a bigger break?  Well, our costs are essentially the same for relay and full participants.  We're just trying out the relay category this year.  Relay teams will be ranked against other relay teams but we will not have the main prizing in this category. Relay participants are eligible for all raffle prizes however, and will each get swag, meal, pats on the back for a job well done, etc.  Participants in the relay category will transfer bib numbers at approximatley the half way point through the course.  Maps to this location will be provided.  Runners doing the second leg should provide transportation at the switch off location so that the first leg runner has a way to get to the finish line - we will not provide transportation to or from the half relay switch location. 

Past Races:

Woo Hoo!  This is the first time this race has ever been held!  Come help set the bar high for future ENDracers!

All profits from this event - and all ENDracing events - will help support Ground UP adventures, a local North Dakota non-profit dedicated to bringing adventure to the region's youth and larger communities.
