ENDURANCE RACES: Endurance races are from 50 miles to 100 miles in length. Shorter races are called "Limited Distance" Competitions. Arabians dominate the sport of Endurance racing because of their stamina. The most famous of the Endurance races is the Tevis Cup.
THE TEVIS CUP
The Tevis cup is an endurance race that covers 100 miles in 24 hours. It was started in 1955 and is held in Ptacer County, California. It begins near the town of Truckee and goes over the Sierra Nevada mountain range and ends at Auburn, California. There are manditory rest stops and vet checks at the 30 mile mark and the 70 mile mark.
This video will give you a little idea of what the Tevis Cup is like.
