The Badlands Race Series is hosted by LAND.


The Badlands Race Series allows you to experience these beautiful, rugged trails like never before. Races include four unique, all-season races on North Dakota’s Maah Daah Hey Trail, designed for everyone from serious competitors to first-time riders or runners.

For years, North Dakota’s legendary Maah Daah Hey Trail was disappearing due to neglect and a lack of resources. Now each year, LAND volunteers dig, mow, string-trim and prune more than 100 miles of singletrack on the Maah Daah Hey trail system. Learn more about how you can #SAVEtheMDH.
