Revision of Extreme North Dakota's Terrifying Run Amongst Innumerable Lost Souls (END-TRAILS) from Mon, 10/19/2020 - 12:33

Saturday, October 24 2020, Arvilla ND


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 6 or 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!

2020 Edition Overview

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and North Dakota state health regulations, race HQ will be outside at the CCC Shelter and we will not be providing racer support (food, water, etc.). You will get a good course, someone keeping track of who wins, and some swag.

Please note that the race is on Saturday this year.

Four Three 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...

No Imp race in 2020
