Voluntary Carbon Offset Contribution
As trail runners, we have a special obligation to protect and preserve the natural resources that we enjoy. We introduced a plan to make the Uwharrie Mountain Run a climate-neutral event. You can participate by making an optional $3 donation that we forward to NC Greenpower help offset your individual carbon footprint and by carpooling to the race.
Awards are a special tradition at Uwharrie, a region known for its beautiful pottery. All finishers receive pottery awards crafted by Michael Mahan, a local Seagrove potter. The top 3 male and female winners in each race receive handmade commemorative pottery. Awards are presented as runners finish.
