One thing we love about putting on URE Marathon is getting to see all the unique food/beverages that people donate at the race. We had plenty of awesome donations this year and one of the more popular items donated was several hundred bottles of pickle juice! These have been a big hit with our runners and we sure they will get even more popular as temperatures increase

The URE Marathon is a free annual trail marathon that takes place in the Uwharrie National Forest of North Carolina, and it’s easily one of my favorite races to participate in. The course is roughly 26 miles with a little over 4000 feet of elevation gain and a similar elevation loss. My goal was t

COVID-19 Update For 2021

We still intend on hosting this event in 2021 while ensuring our runners', volunteers' and crews' safety in 2021 by implementing appropriate protective measures required due to Covid-19. Some of these measures include eliminating the Pre-Race Dinner, limiting the number of personnel at aid stations, increased focus on frequent sanitation of surfaces through the race and requiring the use of masks when at all feasible.

We promise to be fully transparent on any possible changes to the event with runners leading up to the race. If the event is not able to go on due to Government Covid-19 restrictions we will administer the following refund policy:

- If government restrictions mandate that we cancel our event by July 1, 2021 we will issue a FULL REFUND minus UltraSignup fees to all runners.

- If government restrictions mandate that we cancel our event after July 1, 2021 but on or before October 16th, 2021 we will issue a PARTIAL REFUND minus UltraSignup fees to all runners. This PARTIAL REFUND will be calculated by taking the amount of registration fees received, minus any race expenditures that may have been required to spend up until the point of cancellation (I.E. Shirts/Medals/Race Insurance/etc). The remaining balance will be split equally amongst all runners.

*** Important Change to this week's Training Run ***

Unfortunately we have to make a last minute change to the training run scheduled for Saturday, October 24. The training run is still on but it will be unsupported this month because our entire household has come down with COVID19🤢

With that being said, one of our seasoned local runners, Barry Wright, has volunteered to be out there at the start to answer any questions people might have about the course from 0700-0730. Sun up should be sometime between that time anyways.

The course is in great shape and extremely well marked so we still encourage those who were interested to head out there and enjoy some miles outside on the trails. We will be back with a fully supported training run towards the end of November and will let you know as soon as we have a date picked out.

Take care and be safe all!

** Change to October Training Run **

Due to an unfortunate turn of events, our October Training Run will be unsupported. You will need to carry all of your fluids/nutrition for the run.

Barry Wright, one of our seasoned local runners will be at the start from 0700-0730 on Saturday, October 24th to answer any questions runners have about the course.

The course is well marked and in good shape so we still encourage runners who were planning on running to go enjoy some miles outside on the trails. The reason why we are unable to provide aid this run is because our entire household tested positive for COVID19 and will be under quarantine until this clears up.

Hope you all have a good run!

Our Story

The Uwharrie 100 Mile Trail Run will be held on October 20-21, 2018 in the Uwharrie National Forest. The race is held on a 20.5 mile figure eight loop consisting of technical single track trails filled with roots and rocks covered by a lush forest canopy. Runners participating in the 100 mile event will complete the loop five times and 100K runners will complete three loops. Pacers will be allowed after runners have completed two of the single track loops. The registration limit for this event is 125 total runners between both the 100 mile and 100K races. 100 mile entrants will be required to have previously completed a 50 mile event within the race's established time limit. As an exception, runners may use Uwharrie 40 mile Mountain Run or Mount Mitchell Challenge as a qualifying race. Questions about qualifying races can be directed to [email protected]. Due to the high technicality of the course, there will be a 36 hour cut off for both races. Runners participating in the event are highly encouraged to train on technical terrain prior to race day. We conduct monthly training runs beginning in March and ending in October for those that are interested. Stay tuned to our website and page for more information. Maps, Elevation Profiles, Training Run Dates, Race Videos and much more are available on www.uwharrie100.com.

Here's my race recap of the marathon last weekend! I had a blast, thank you to Dan and Paige and to all the volunteers. It was my second time running this event and I'll be back next year for sure! Enjoy!
Blog report of the Uwharrie Marathon from some Mediocre Runners 😜

Hey!! Does anyone know if Wood Run Trailhead is still available to run? Or has the park shutdown all the trails??
I am planning a run on Saturday started at 7:00/7:15am from the Wood Run trail head. My goal is to do a 20 mile out and back run staying on the Uwharrie trail - training for the February race. Would love to get some others out on the trails this weekend. Let me know if you are interested.
i know its early, but do you know around what dates the 100 will be next year?
Uwharrie Runners are having flashbacks with this storm haha
I cannot thank Dan, Amanda and all of the volunteers for such a great race! While the conditions got tough Saturday night, y'all never faltered. 1st class all of the way!
To all the volunteers...I don't know all of you but I'm sure you are all following this page. I want to say a big THANK YOU for all of your amazing work and help this weekend. I didn't have to do a thing when I came into an aid station whether it was refilling bottles, holding gear, getting gear from drop bags. The conditions at night were absolutely horrible but it never showed with you guys when coming into the aid stations! Nothing but smiles, encouragement, and willingness to help! Dan and Amanda you have a best in class event and support team in this area! Thank you all for the experience! P.S. I'll be back to get that buckle in 2 years!
A huge thank you to all the volunteers who helped us out at Kelly’s Kitchen this year! You all were incredible and really appreciate you taking such good care of the runners on a TOUGH night!!
So proud of everyone out there- it was an honor to be part of this event ♥️ https://www.facebook.com/724783238/posts/10156472179623239?sfns=mo
Congrats to all runners and welcome to the family! ❤️ Eric & Mary-margaret Marshall
