Undead Hall of Fame is Livening Up

It's that time of year again...time for our Halloween Double Feature!  More importantly for some of us is the Undead Hall of Fame competition: To gain such status, one must mountain bike over 100 miles in 12 hours at END-TOMBED, get exactly 12 hours of rest, and then run/walk/shamble over 50 miles the next day at END-TRAILS.  As you can tell, it's an elite group--last year only four racers managed the feat, to be remembered in infamy...forever...

Here are your 2014 Undead Hall of Fame competitors (as of today):

  • Justin Phillips, Grand Forks, ND
  • Lisa Thompson, St. Paul, MN
  • Joe Vacek, Grand Forks, ND
  • Jenn Holmes, Winnipeg, MB
  • Lisa Kaufman, Bismarck, ND
  • Matt Cooley, Grand Forks, ND
  • Wild Bill Murtha, Dickinson, ND
  • Scott Schofield, Grand Forks AFB, ND

We wish them the best of luck...

Non-stop Action

Wow it's been quite a summer.  As a race director I've been thrilled to put so many epic races this summer and connect with so many inspiring individuals.  I'm also consider myself very lucky and blessed to have such talented folks to work with and such a great crew of dedicated volunteers to make all of this possible.  We're still in recovery mode from Uff Da and gearing up for the final three events of the season--a family adventure race in conjunction with Ground UP adventures,  the North American Adventure Racing championship race, and our 'Double Feature' event (a mountain bike race and trail race on consecutive days) but we're also already looking ahead to next year. We aren't yet 100% certain on next years dates but will try to have those posted by the end of the month for those already looking to schedule their 2015 race calendar, but will wait until Jan 2nd of 2015 to open registration for all events.  Why Jan 2nd?  Well, we just want to make sure you have a full day to think about things after any potential New Year's Eve revelry. After all, while resolutions are great things, resolutions that include any of our events are probably best made when one's faculties are fully present.
