NCARS is back in action for 2015! We are returning to an old favorite, the Uwharrie, for an overnight adventure. Teams of 1-4 will paddle in Badin Lake, trek by foot through the backwoods of the Uwharrie Mountains and mountain bike through beautiful scenery – hmmm, didn’t we say this was an overnight race…

This 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 5 hour race is designed for the beginner racer who wants a taste of the longer races but over a more manageable distance. You get all the disciplines but not the greater physical and strategic demands.

The 2 hour family race is designed as an easy and fun way to understand adventure racing. You can push as hard as you want or take it a bit easier. It’s a great way for parents and kids to get some exercise in a beautiful environment.

The Uwharrie 18 race is a USARA Nationals Qualifier and is being designed by long-time racer Michael Beacham. We look forward to welcoming you to North Carolina in June!
