North Dakota Nice: A North Carolinian racer thinks ND rocks

This story comes from a fantastic endurance racer named Schenley Green, who was up in our neck of the woods from North Carolina for an ENDracing (Extreme North Dakota Racing) event:

The volunteers at ENDracing were beyond TOP NOTCH!  They kept the water cold, were like personal sherpas, gave open encouragement, worked 24 hours-plus – no medals, no pay, and thank yous may have been limited that day – but we ALL knew without them we would be TOAST.

I love this race more than the hundreds I’ve done and the volunteers were the best part of it!

THANK YOU, Schenley! We hope you come back soon!

(PS, Schenley is the co-founder of Heart on a Mission, which you can check out here.)
