Last week, we cancelled the Uwharrie adventure races for this Spring due to COVID-19 related closures of the parks. We're hoping to create another race for this Fall so please watch the NCARS Facebook page for updates.

We have two options for your race registration fees. First: if you'd like to keep a "credit" with NCARS, we're happy to roll your registration fee to a future event. Second: If you'd like a refund, please send an email to steve.hall@ncars.info with your physical mailing address. We're working on the most efficient method for refunds which is likely a check.

We're all frustrated that COVID-19 has taken temporarily taken away these events. BUT, we will be back!

NCARS is back in action for its 6th year of adventure racing in Uwharrie. Teams of 1-4 will paddle in the Yadkin River, trek by foot through the backwoods of the Uwharrie Mountains and mountain bike through beautiful scenery.  The 5 hour race is designed for families and beginners - it only has trekking and paddling this year.  No matter your racing experience, this course is designed to be fun!  As always the 18 hour race will push the elite teams while also providing the overnight experience that new teams need in preparation for the 24+ hour events. The Uwharrie races are being designed by long-time racer Michael Beacham.

For those racers who like a marked course, we're hosting the second ever Naked Mtn triathlon! This will be somewhere between a sprint and olympic distance triathlon with paddling substituted for the swim. We're excited about adding this new event to our line-up.

We look forward to welcoming you to North Carolina in mid June.
