Extreme North Dakota Spring Primer Adventure Race
All information is available at http://www.endracing.com/p/end-spar.html but here is an overview from the site:
END-SPAR stands for Extreme North Dakota Spring Primer Adventure Race - it's our annual sprint distance race designed to provide a means for those new to adventure racing to get their feet wet (and muddy and possibly blistered!) without committing to a longer race. That said, it's no picnic and could probably be accurately billed as the 'second hardest race in North Dakota'. The 2010 race was held in and around Turtle River State Park and Larimore Dam recreation area, about 30 miles west of Grand Forks, North Dakota. Subsequent races will be held in the same vicinity, although each year the course will change entirely and new mystery challenges will be presented.
Besides being a great entry point into the sport of AR, it is also an opportunity for experienced teams to hone their skills for the coming season and/or develop new skills that will prepare them for longer races. I like to think that when racers who are well acquainted with (and able to complete) the ENDracing series do other races they will happily realize that their ability to comfortably be 'out of their comfort zone' is more than a match for most events.
