Umstead 100 @ Camp Lapiho | Raleigh | North Carolina | United States

Come out and support new ultra runners make the leap from 50 mile runs to the more demanding 100 mile runs!
Race registration is closed. For full info, go to umstead100.org

The Umstead 100 enables runners who have difficulty finishing 100 miles in 24 hours, or just finishing 100 miles at all, the opportunity to do so when severe topography, heat, and getting lost are removed as major obstacles. Many runners find the Umstead 100 an excellent foundation for the Massanutten 100, Western States 100, Leadville 100, and Wasatch 100 runs.

Competitive entrants (sub 17 hours for males; sub 18 hours for females)
can still contact the race director at RaceDirector@Umstead100.org.

Thanks to Honey Stinger and Farm to Feet for their support.

One Spot Left!

DESCRIPTION

A very comprehensive one day course for 8 students. We’ve packed a lot of information into an 8 hour day, including: casting, knots, equipment, fishing strategies and fly selection, for coldwater, warmwater and saltwater species. Beginners can expect to learn the skills that will allow them to catch fish on their own, and intermediate level fly fishers can advance their casting skills and fill in some holes in their technical knowledge. We provide all equipment, including a textbook, as well as lunch and drinks. Just bring a willingness to have fun and learn, but register early, they fill up fast.

Clearwater Lake:

Clearwater Lake is a quiet, picturesque 5 acre lake in Chapel Hill. It’s now part of a YMCA day camp although it was originally a sand quarry. It’s both colder and clearer than most central NC ponds, which gave rise to the idea of a trout stocking program. The lake is stocked with trout in mid-October, depending on weather. So our October 30th class should have trout to fish for. There are native bass and pan fish in the lake year round.

Howell Woods:

Howell Woods is a 2,800 acre natural are along the Neuse river managed by professional foresters and biologists for native wildlife and plant communities. It stands out for both its sheer size and management philosophy especially given its proximity to the triangle. Our class is held in an area of the property which has a pond stocked with native bass and pan fish as well as an indoor and outdoor classroom. That entire area is reserved for our class. We will be at the pond for both casting and fishing portions of the class but have access to indoor and outdoor shelters during the classroom portion.
