About NPA


Northern Plains Athletics is a personal project that began when I wanted to know what races I could do that weren't too far away.  Other race calendars are focused on keywords, types of races, and text search--NPA is designed to help you find a race by looking at a map of where you live.  If you love to race but don't have the time to drive, hopefully you can find something local, even if it's not the kind of race you usually do.

I also do web development (including online registration) for ENDracing and Ground Up Adventures.  If you're interested in something similar for your event, please get in touch.  We might be able to work together.

Getting Involved

This website is directly supported by users (that's you!) through Gratipay and Liberapay.  You can read more about how this works here.

If you are interested in helping with the website, you can begin donating, submitting new events, updating existing events, and suggesting new features.  I am working on an "open work" onboarding flow.

Updating Events

You can see a list of out-of-date events at http://northernplainsathletics.com/old. If you know when the race is happening next, the easiest way to help me update the event is to use the  [+] Feedback button floating at the bottom right on each page.
