Race Summary

The Extreme North Dakota Terrifying Run Amongst Innumerable Lost Souls:  it's our annual epic Halloween themed trail run.  Taking place in Turtle River State Park, runners will compete solo or as part of a relay team to try to get in as many laps as possible in 12 hours.
The course has lots of windy single track, some fast and flat double track, lots of undulations (this is North Dakota, don't worry too much!) and about 100 yards of pavement.  It is a beautiful place to run! There is warm place to chill out and get cozy between laps by the fire. 
Although there are hardcore runners that show up and some good competition, there's also a pretty fun and casual atmosphere - racer chosen music pumping at the finish of every lap, lots of kids hanging out and cheering on the racers, great volunteers, hidden halloween candy on the course, and a few spooky sections (especially if you're lucky enough to do a lap after dark!) to get you in the halloween spirit.  

Four Ways to Race

Zombie 12-Hour: Race solo for 12 hours to get the most number of laps of the course.

Zombie 6-Hour: Race solo for 6 hours.

Skeleton Army: Race with a team of up to four people for 12 hours, alternating laps.

Imp:  10k trail run.  Register as an Imp and get a taste of the race without spending all day at it.  Race solo for one lap of the course, refuel, and just think about upgrading to Zombie next year...
