Race Details

The Uwharrie Gold Rush, held in conjunction with the Uwharrie 100, will be held on October 19, 2024 in the Uwharrie National Forest. This 50K 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. Uwharrie Gold Rush Runners will complete the southern portion of the figure 8 loop first (11.5 miles) and then will finish with a complete loop of the figure 8 course (20.5 miles) to finish their event. Pacers will NOT be allowed for the Uwharrie Gold Rush.

The registration limit for this event will be 50 total runners in the Uwharrie Gold Rush.

Due to the high technicality of the course, there will be a 12 hour cut off (8:00pm) for the Uwharrie Gold Rush.

Runners must register by September 15th to be guaranteed their shirt size. We will do our best to get runners who register after that date the shirt size of their choosing but we will not be able to guarantee it due to us having to place the shirt order by that date in order to have them by race day.


50% refunds will be issued until MAY 31st, 2024 for any registered entrant who requests to withdraw. No full refunds or bib transfers will be offered.

***There are significant up front costs to putting on a race of this size, and many of those expenses occur months in advance of race day. Thank you for understanding.


Deferments will be considered on a case-by-case basis until October 1, 2024.

NO DEFERMENTS will be considered after that date. If you have a request to defer PRIOR to October 1, 2024, please send an email to

If granted a deferment you are allowed a SINGLE deferment; meaning you may roll over your registration one time to the following year. Multiple deferments will not be honored.
