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.
