Fri March 1 - Mon April 1 Albemarle, NC 28001 US Directions


OBX Lighthouse March Virtual Challenge - 117.3-Miles in 31-Days

Did you know that the Outer Banks Is A Giant Sandbar – The OBX is composed of sand and sediment and not actually attached to anything as an island would be.

You can get your miles in and learn interesting facts about the Outer Banks in the Outer Banks Lighthouse Virtual 117.3-mile Challenge in March.

The OBX Lighthouses are some of the gems of the Carolina's.  Virtually journey the 117.3-Miles from Currituck to Ocracoke during the month of March.

You can run or walk at your own pace.  You can run or walk on the road, on the sidewalks, on the trails or on a treadmill.  Average 3.78-miles per day and you will get it done.  

You will virtually start at the Currituck Lighthouse and run/walk 42.8-miles to the Bodie Island Lighthouse.  Once there, you will be eligible for door prizes.  Next stop, virtually head down the road 43.1-miles to reach the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, where you will be eligible for more door prizes.   Ease on down the road another 31.4-miles to the Ocracoke Island Lighthouse by the end of March and you will be eligible for more prizes! 

Along the way, you will reach milestones and learn a bit of Outer Banks information and trivia.  


All participants will receive your choice of a t-shirt or tank top.  Finishers will receive a finishers award.  We will ship the t-shirts and tanks at the end of the Challenge along with the awards to participants  that live outside Stanly County.  Those that live in Stanly County, you can stop by Uwharrie Dash and pick your items up.
