challenge

Uwharrie Trail Run Challenge (UTRC) will be held in Uwharrie National Forest at the Wood Run Trailhead west of Troy, North Carolina.  We will host the camping in the Badin Lake Recreation Area. 

We are excited to bring this 2nd annual event to the Trans-Sylvania Production nation.  This race is inspired by our 5-day stage race, Trans-Sylvania MTB Epic.  There's nothing better than a weekend of running/racing and spending time with fellow runners.
