URE (or otherwise known as Uwharrie) Marathon
Event's current local time: 3:47 AM ET
Come join us to kick off our 2024 training runs for the Uwharrie 100 with a free, FA style marathon! If you are looking for a race with loads of swag to justify your cool accomplishments, this probably isn't your race. However, if you are looking for a race over some gnarly trails with some good people, this might just be what you are looking for.
The course will begin at the Wood Run Trailhead at 8:00am on March 9, 2024. This year's race will be run entirely on single and double track trails in which runners will traverse all portions of the Uwharrie and Dutchman's Creek Trail south of HWY 109. This is a great opportunity to check out the Uwharrie 100 course if you are contemplating running it or just curious to see some of the carnage :) There will be a 10 hour cutoff (Finish no later than 6:00pm) to ensure all runners are off the trails by darkness.
There will be aid stations at mile 6, 11.7, 14.6, 17.5, 20.8 and 26.3. We'll keep them stocked with water and gatorade. It would be awesome if you could bring some type of food/beverage that we could evenly disperse amongst the aid stations:) Extra points are awarded for home cooked baked goods!
