About Umstead Trail Marathon

This race will definitely meet all your expectations!!

All 26.2 miles of the marathon will be run within the borders of William B. Umstead State Park, a five thousand-acre tract of dense woods, lakes, streams, hills, and trails that rests between the cities of Raleigh, Cary, and Durham.

 This is a challenging race with many hills and some single-track sections consisting of narrow trails with rocks and roots. There is also a six-hour cut off. Finishers will receive distinctive pint glasses with the race logo. Sorry, no race medals. Some people love this sort of thing, but it is not for everyone. We love it and hope you will too.
