Last weekend brought one of the premiere adventure events in the state to the Red River Valley - ENDracing's END-SPAR - a six and a half hour adventure race located in and around turtle river state park. The event sold out months ago and drew experienced adventure athletes from throughout the region and Southern Canada. Six 'kids' joined the hundred odd adults to test their mettle against a tough course that involved mountain biking, trekking, pack-rafting, and mystery challenges and map and compass navigation. All six youth visited enough checkpoints to be considered official finishers which is quite an achievement for anyone, of any age. The youngest racers, pictured here, are 11 and 13 and came out from Minnesota for the race. Way to show everyone what is possible guys!
