Blake Norwood was the founder of the Umstead 100 Mile Endurance Run, Race Director for 20 years until his retirement in 2014, and a retired Army Colonel who served with regular and reserve Army units.
In honor of Blake's commitment to the U.S. Armed Services, the North Carolina Ultra Running Association established the Blake Norwood Memorial Awards where 4 active-duty armed services members are awarded entry into the race. For more information, see About the Blake Norwood Memorial Award.
We are sorry to announce that due to the 2020 cancellation of our Race, the Blake Norwood Memorial Award will be suspended for 2021 as all the winners from 2020 have been deferred into the 2021 Race. The award will return in 2022.
