|Extreme Sports Competitions Bring Out The Adventurers
By Scooter Pursley,
There's something really extreme about swimming 36 miles in the winding Red River of the North or getting lost in the Badlands and finding a way out in as little time as possible.
First, why would someone swim 36 miles in the Red River? There are better ways to find catfish. And why would anyone want to be dropped off in rugged country with limited supplies to use only their wits to find a way out?
It sounds a little extreme, and that's the point. Extreme racing has a foothold in North Dakota, thanks mostly to the work of Andy Magness of Grand Forks.
