The 2014 race will be serving as the North American Championship race for the NAARS series and will take place in October in North Dakota's Badlands. It will up the ante with a 36-hour format and one of the toughest courses ever offered at a championship race. Are you ready?

END-AR is hands down the hardest race in the state of North Dakota.  It is an extreme challenge of team-work that involved biking, trekking, and paddling through some of the most difficult terrain in the entire state for up to a full day.  Many races like to tout themselves as hard but don't deliver.  As a racer myself, I hate that.  As a race director, I never want to be 'that guy'.  That said, a good race isn't just comprised of insanely difficult obstacles or ungodly distances - at the end of the day it needs to be both a memorable and rewarding experience for the racers, whether they finish or not.  And of course, it needs to be tons of fun (although the types of fun may vary between participants).  So that is my goal in putting on this event.  It won't be for everyone.  It will be tough.
