Social Media Navigation

Hi folks, it's 2021 and people are understandably more concerned than ever about privacy on and undue influence from social media. I (Beek) just wanted to run through a description of what we use to communicate with racers and how you might want to interact with us. I have certain opinions, but each race director may choose to use social media differently.

This website ( is the canonical source of important information about our races unless superseded by an email from us. With multiple race directors it can be hard to keep everything up to date, but all the important stuff should be here. Comments are enabled on blog posts if you have questions. Drop a line on this post and tell me what you think.

Our Facebook page ( is the main social media people use to interact with race directors and about races. We do not require anyone to have a Facebook account to get information about our races, but network effects understandably drive a lot of racer focus in this direction. Facebook events provide an area for people to discuss races, but are unfortunately not easy to access for those without accounts.

We also push a fair bit of information to our Twitter account ( and will respond to questions or RTs. The more you interact with us there, the more stuff we'll tweet. Twitter also provides an easy way to provide event updates, and event discussion can happen through the use of hashtags like #wildermantri or #endwet.

Our Instagram account ( is used intermittently. Some people love it, some people hate it.

We use YouTube ( to host videos and that's about it. If you have a video from one of our races and want to share it, we can add it to our curated playlists. The same goes for Flickr (, which has tons of great Wes Peck photos.

If you're concerned about privacy, ads, or other nefarious use of your data, ENDracing also has an account ( on Mastodon. Give us a follow and a mention and we'll follow back. Brands aren't always welcomed for "brand activity" on Mastodon, but we're mainly interested in interacting with racers rather than advertising.

[Technobabble break: Mastodon ( is a Twitter-like microblogging platform that is part of the Fediverse ( That's a lot of jargon, but the key point is that you can view all of our posts from the web without logging in (similar to Twitter) and also interact with our account from any Fediverse account (Mastodon, Pleroma, Pixelfed, Friendica, Diaspora, etc.). Rather than Google/Facebook/Twitter owning the whole social network, it's controlled by individual server administrators. If this sounds intriguing but still have questions, let me (Beek) know and I can help.]

We tried a traditional message board for a short period; if there is interest we could bring that back. All it required was an email address to make an account and we have no plans to sell your data.

If you don't use social media (even public website comments), you can always email us ( and we'll try to help.

Hopefully this 1) clears some things up about what social media is required to get information about our races (none!) and 2) provides some alternatives to Facebook if you don't have an account but want to be social. See you out there!

2021 Race Update

Hey ENDracers, Happy New Year! Just a quick update that we are working on getting things in order to host a handful of races in 2021. Details still need to be worked out for number of racers, costs, etc. but we'll make an announcement soon. We are planning to host END-SURE, END-WET, Wilderman, Double Feature, at least one gravel race...maybe more. Please hang tight while we figure out how to host these races safely (relatively speaking, this is Extreme North Dakota Racing after all...) for our racers and our team! Cheers!

Double Feature 2020 - Race Week

It's race week! Here are some things to know:
- Please stay home if you feel sick or have been notified by a state health department that you are a COVID-19 close contact.
- Please try to socially distance as much as possible. Keep in mind that others may have different feelings about what an acceptable distance is with and without a mask/face covering. Give a wide berth when passing on trails.
- It is highly encouraged that racers wear a mask/face covering when checking in.
- It is highly encouraged that spectators and volunteers wear a mask/face covering.
- Try to keep one empty space between vehicles in the parking lot, especially if you will be using your vehicle/parking lot as base camp for the day. You can set up camp/tent for the day in the grass at CCC, but keep 10 feet between camps.
- No food and water will be provided, please bring your own.
- CCC shelter does not have walls or heat, plan accordingly for weather conditions (clothing, warm vehicle, ice house and propane heater, etc.).
- END-TRAILS (running) is Saturday 24 Oct
- END-TOMBED (mtb) is Sunday 25 Oct
- Checkin starts ~7 AM each morning. You will need to sign a waiver to check in and get a number.
- Each vehicle in the park needs to have an annual or daily parking pass. If you don't have one, please either 1) purchase online from the ND State Parks website, 2) purchase from our website (day pass only), or 3) bring exactly $7 in cash.
- Camping is available in the park, please contact TRSP directly for reservations and details.
- Pit toilets are available at CCC, and the north washrooms are open at the campground.
- Results will be pen-and-paper instead of the computer system we've used the last two years, so there may be some delay in updating results on the big board.
Most other information should be in the course book. Contact us with any questions.
See you soon,
ENDracing Crew

May 16th END-COVID-19 Drawing

On May 16th, Brian, Scott, and I met in rural Cummings, ND at Highland Lutheran Church to hold a random drawing for those participating in END-COVID-19. The list of prizes and winners are here. I will be contacting you in order to get these items into your hands.

Thank you for particiapting in this event. Your dedication to staying healthy, participating without a group setting, and stretching your limits is awesome!

Another drawing will be held in early June at the completion of the event. Soon there will be a link to the Minnesota Sisters, ENDracing store. This will give you a way to purchase t-shirts directly. There will be two material options (tri-blend + wicking) and two color options for each material. These shirts will be available in youth and adult sizes.  2 t-shirts were given away in the initial drawing and 2 more will be given away at the conclusion of the event.
