Enduro Race Series in the United States- 2017 Master List

Looking to add some trophies to your enduro racing case, well there are suprisingly a lot of enduro series across the United States that you can hold the title for. Each race in a series has it’s own individual rules but can be part of an overall series consisting of 2 to 8 races spanning across one state or an entire coast.

There are 20 enduro series occurring across the US, so far…I keep adding to the list. Scroll down to see all race dates in an enduro series and link to each website.

If you are planning on racing one of the series or individual races, click on the title of the series and it will take you to get more information about that race. All the details of when registration opens, price, and specific details about the series. Let me know if those details would be helpful on this page and I can add them in!

The goal is to provide a level playing field for both climbers and descenders so we may crown the top all-around athletes.
