The Uwharrie Gold Rush, held in conjunction with the Uwharrie 100, will be held on October 19th, 2019 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 40 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 participating in the event are highly encouraged to train on technical terrain prior to race day. We will be conducting monthly training runs beginning in March for those that are interested.
