URE (or otherwise known as Uwharrie) Marathon
Local time: 6:50 PM
Come join us to kick off our 2019 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, 2019. The course begins with 5.70 miles of jeep road followed up with 20.5 miles of goodness that consists of the Uwharrie 100 course. 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 5.7, 11.7, 17.4, 20.7 and 26.2. 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!
