Due to the continued and forecasted unhealthy air quality levels in the Bay Area, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all events for the 2018 Endurance Challenge Championships this coming weekend.

The North Face will be accepting donations for individuals, animals and communities affected by the wildfires at all packet pickup locations. Runners are still eligible to pick up their race packet. Endurance Challenge Series staff will drop off donations at Law Enforcement Staging Area at Butte College, Fire Crews Staging Area at Silver Dollar Fairgrounds, North Valley Community Foundation and Butte Humane Society through the weekend.

**Please note the designated list of donation items accepted by local relief organizations and the Red Cross.
