Welcome to Morrow Mountain State Park and the Naked Mountain Ultra!
Morrow Mountain is one of the highest peaks in the Uwharrie Mountains of central North Carolina.
These pinnacles are the remains of one of the oldest mountain ranges in the eastern United States.
The park houses 32 miles of beautiful trail and you are about to become well acquainted with the majority of them.
Prepare yourself to be challenged as this course will traverse you up four of the park's mountain peaks and looping the park.
All the courses will be loops, starting and ending at the base of the Hattaway Mountain trailhead across the way from the Morrow Mountain pool.
The 50-mile course will consist of two 25-mile loops that will traverse four of the mountains of the park, yielding just shy of 3800 feet of elevation gain each loop.
The 10-miler will cover some additional terrain not covered in the 25/50-mile course and will offer about 1800 ft of accent.
3-mile runners will enjoy what we like to call the "Hattaway Fun Run", which will consist of a quick trip up and around Hattaway Mountain and packing roughly 600 feet of climb.
We will have 5 aid stations located along the course. These aid stations will serve as hydration points and will provide a combination of various cooked foods, gels and snacks.
14 Hours will be provided for the 50 mile runners and 13 hours for the 25.
50 mile runners must complete their first loop within 7 hours in order to continue.
The course will be closed at 9PM for all runners!
We will be offering drop bag service for 50 and 25 Mile runners to certain aid stations on the course - More information will be provided concerning that soon.
