Wood Run MTB Race will be held in Uwharrie National Forest at the Wood Run Trailhead just west of Troy, North Carolina.  This is off of Highway 24/27 in between the towns of Troy and Albemarle.

We're excited to bring this new event to the Trans-Sylvania Production nation.  This will be a little different version of the Uwharrie MTB Challenge.

Adventure Summit Uwharrie has asked us to partner with them and we can't be more excited about their idea!  Over the Adventure Summit weekend, we will be putting on a gravel race, mountain bike race and a trail run race around Uwharrie National Forest.


Our races will be a separate entity to the Adventure Summit.  Their idea is to have different promoters, like Trans-Sylvania Productions, put on their own specific events and then bring everyone together in a festival atmosphere at Adventure Summit Uwharrie.  They will have camping, vendors, music, food trucks, happy hour, and more.           



What You Get With Registration 

  • Well marked course

  • Event t-shirt

  • Post race meal (TBD with COVID-19)

  • Fully stocked aid stations

  • And one epic day with friends 

2020 Design TBD

Race Location

Race is located at the Wood Run Trailhead off of Highway 24/27 in between Troy and Albemarle.  We will use the Wood Run Camp area for the start/finish.  Google map shows the entrance to Wood Run Road, continue down the road to parking and the start/finish area.

Parking will be in the field that is on the right side before the Wood Run Camp area.  We will not allow parking at the start/finish area except for essential personal (medical, race director, etc).
