Join Uwharrie 100

Think you have what it takes to traverse 102.5 miles along one of Earth’s oldest mountain ranges? Are you willing to push yourself to your absolute limits as you maneuver your way through the scenic, yet unrelenting single track trails filled with rocks, roots, ascents, descents and numerous stream crossings? Make no mistake, the Uwharrie 100 is one of the most challenging 100’s on the east coast. Are you up to the challenge?

The Uwharrie 100 Mile Trail Run will be held in October in the Uwharrie National Forest. The race is held on a 20.5 mile figure 8 loop consisting of technical 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.

Course Highlights

The Uwharrie 100 Mile Trail Run is held on a 20.5 mile single track course in the Uwharrie National Forest which runners will complete five times. Runners participating in the 100K event will complete three 20.5 mile loops.

The best word to describe the course is UNRELENTING. There are several other 100's on the East Coast that have more challenging sections than Uwharrie 100 or with more elevation gain, we do not dispute that. With that being said, you would be hard pressed to find another East Coast 100 that is as consistently hard throughout the entire course as Uwharrie 100. Runners will have to be mentally alert the entire race to maneuver their way through the single track trails filled with rocks, roots and other surprises. There are four large climbs on the course (Mile 5, 7.4, 8.4, and 16 of the single track loop). These climbs may seem tame your first few laps but we promise you that by the end of the race you will understand why they have earned names such as "The Soul Crusher" or "Hallucination Hill". The rest of the course is very rolling with little to no flat ground.
