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. His vision to have an ultra which would encourage new runners to adopt the sport has resulted in the Umstead 100 becoming one of the most recognized hundred mile runs in the ultrarunning community.

In honor of Blake's commitment to the U.S. Armed Services, the North Carolina Ultra Running Association established the Blake Norwood Memorial Awards.
