Courtesy of END-WET, Mighty Red River of the North from North Dakota to Minnesota.

The END-WET (Extreme North Dakota Watersports Endurance Test) is a 36-mile (57.9 km) river swim down the Mighty Red River of the North from state of North Dakota to the state of Minnesota.

Longest open water swimming competition in North America is looking for volunteers (solo or pairs) to paddle the Red River of the North as company, safety, and support for open water swimmers who have traveled hundreds or thousands of miles for this race. Each support boat gets a US$150 stipend and food at the Blue Moose after the finish.

END-WET is also looking for motorboat owners or drivers to shuttle first responders and act as transportation for race staff.

Interested in the June 17th event? Fill out the volunteer form here and a member of the END-WET team will contact you soon.
