Events and Programs

Morrow Mountain State Park offers a variety of learning opportunities for all ages. Typically led by park rangers, these interpretive programs allow the public to gain perspective into what makes North Carolina state parks naturally wonderful. ​

Most of the events are free, though some require pre-registration. All give park visitors deeper insight into the natural world. Call the park office for more information.

 

Visit our race website to register at   https://runsignup.com/race/nc/albemarle/trinakedmountain 

This race is located in the Heart of the Uwahrrie Mountain Range at Morrow Mountain State Park, Albemarle NC.  

The course is 14.1 miles long and consists of a 2.5 mile paddle on the Yadkin River, a 7.5 mile road bike course to the summit of Morrow Mountain, and a 4.1 mile trail run on our most popular hiking trail (Fall Mountain Trail), including a creek crossing and some switch backs.  

Race participants can sign up as a 3 man relay or individual.  Each participant receives free camping for race weekend, race day tshirt, post race food, free bike tune up by REI bike tech, and prizes to the top finishers in each age class.  Top prize includes $100 cash for the fastest individual and the fastest team.  

This event is the first annual and is meant to raise funds to purchase kayaks for park programing.  We will also have an Astral Blue Jacket ($225 life jacket from our Ashevile North Carolina based company) up for raffle and will draw a winner at the end of the summer.
