Who We Support: Ground UP Adventures

From April 27th to May 3rd, Ground UP Adventures is part of giveGRAND!, a "charitable challenge" week during which donations to GUP have a chance to be matched by the Community Foundation.  If you enjoy our events and wish you could have done this sort of thing as a kid, please consider a donation to one of our several youth programs.

All profits from ENDracing events go to supporting Ground UP Adventures, a Grand Forks-based 501(c)3 nonprofit with the goal of bringing adventure into kids' lives.  In 2013 we donated over $10,000 thanks to your involvement in ENDracing events.  Read more about our relationship with GUP here, and see how you can become involved at


Now: Spring Primer Adventure Race

May 17th

If you've seen all the fun our END-AR racers have had over the years in the ridiculously entertaining Pembina Gorge but haven't considered racing for 24 hours, this is your race!  Simple enough for new racers and challenging enough for veterans, END-SPAR is a great way to jump into the outdoors this spring.

Check out our great END-SPAR sponsors for 2014: Dakota HarvestNorth Dakota Tourism, Greater Grand Forks Convention & Visitors Bureau, and the City of Grand Forks.

Next: Watersports Endurance Test

June 21st

The longest open-water swim race in the country on the longest day of the year.  Serendipitous?  We think so.  Endurance swimming junkies from all over will descend on Grand Forks to take a 36-mile dip in the Red, including Guest Swimmer Annaleise Carr, the youngest swimmer to cross Lake Ontario!

Be a part of the action on race day and volunteer as a support paddler!

Plan Ahead: 2014 Calendar

Registration now open for most events.

We Race Too:
Yogaslackers/ENDracing and END-FAST

ENDracing knows that to put on great races, you have to race yourself.  Team Yogaslackers/ENDracing (check them out here) was formed to show that great talent can be found all over the place--including where you already live.  
After a successful year of adventure racing in 2013, Yogaslackers/ENDracing (represented by Andy Magness, Grant Mehring, John Kenny and Michelle Annandale) gained a fourth-place finish at the Maya Mountain Adventure Challenge, acting as the NAARS World Championships.  They have a busy schedule already lined up for 2014!

END-FAST (Future of Adventure Sports Team) is a group of youth racers co-sponsored by ENDracing and Ground UP Adventures.  
After impressive performances in 2013, including a youth-only END-AR24 squad, END-FAST was back at it for the Iceman Triathlon.  Reid Nelson, Megan Peck, Rosa Grijalva, Carmen Grijalva, Lou Grijalva, Erin Peck, Lucy Glessner, and Four Cedars Standing made up the majority of the field, competing against adults many times their respective ages!
