The best word to describe the Uwharrie 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.
The event was started in 2014, by a group of visionary local NC trail runners. Over the years it has evolved into something truly special. The race environment focuses on sportsmanship, camaraderie with a unique warmth and family feel. The event has become known for amazing volunteers, the best aid station food in the business, and UNRELENTING trails.
