List of Mountain Bike Endurance Races - North America and Worldwide

I finally got it done! As I said with the last list, the format that I chose was designed to make it easier for browsing and general planning. Armed with the name and the location of the race it should be easy to find it online. I did this because races come and go and dates change, and keeping up with all that is not my idea of fun.  I tried to make sure that all these races are still being run. If I missed a race you think should be on the list, make a comment and I'll consider adding it. I say "consider" because I did exclude a number of races because I didn't think they were hard enough, or "mountain bikey" enough, or just didn't think it warranted. My basic criteria was 50 miles or more or 7 hours or longer, but I made some exceptions when they looked cool enough. If you are wondering why Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico are missing, its because they have their own list which I posted awhile back. I will try to include a link to that list as well, but the cross referencing for scheduling purposes is up to you.

I haven't figured out how to install a document on the Blog page yet but I'm working on it. In the meantime, you will have to make do with the pasted list below.
