Swimmers Race Down Red River

Posted: Updated:
Racers are you ready? Swimmers will be doing the ultimate challenge of swimming more than 30 miles down the Red River. The race is called END-WET which stands for Extreme North Dakota Watersports Endurance Test. 

This year 30 swimmers will be going downriver 36 miles. This race is marked in one of America's top 100 open water swims. Race Director Andy Magness says a certain kind of drive, endurance and strength is required to be in this race.

END-WET started two years ago, and now has caught the eye of swimmers like Annaliese Carr. Carr is from Canada and is the youngest person to swim across Lake Ontario.

The race starts at Belmont Park, then will swim downriver to Grand Forks 36 miles. Spectators are encouraged to watch the last 5 miles in Grand Forks near the finish line. Stay updated through the racing web page by their Facebook page by clicking here.
