"I like the whole grass roots feel of the event -- that made it a lot of fun. The no official aid stations and running in the middle of nowhere was really nice. I tend to be a minimalist when it comes to endurance events and this event allowed for just that. I'm not actually sure I'd change anything, it’s a good distance for people who think these events are good idea without being too easy, or crushing people. I thought the volunteers were great and my local pit crew member was outstanding." ~2016 Competitor

"I personally think that the North Country Endurance Challenge is the premier multisport event in New England. The distance, remoteness, serenity you feel all alone in a wild scenic area travelling along the road less traveled is a special circumstance and privilege as a racing opportunity. I think the world of this event and how it changes the landscape of sports, multi-sport in New England and look forward to many more challenging race days." ~2016 Competitor

"You guys really need to talk this event up as being a TOUGH event! In all the reading I did on the course, it all seemed fairly easy. This was an amazing event, and the race directors couldn't have been a better crew. I’ll be back, and will be bringing some friends." ~2016 Competitor

"I will keep on sharing this event to the New England multi-sport community. The key here is multi-sport and off-road. This is what truly makes this event unique and like none other in New England! I think you can continue to deliver a top-end experience in the North Country and add to the base. This was the return of an event that was destined to grow, but fell off the map. I think it was a resurgent step. One that blew away everyone how much of a well-oiled machine C.O.R.E. has become and how dedicated the community is to reaching out to a new genre of tourist. Not just fishermen and ATVs. Very powerful statement!" ~2016 Competitor
