Beneficiary:  This event serves as the primary fundraiser each year for your race organizer, the Outer Banks Running Club.  Proceeds enable our Club to serve its members and our community & visitors through races, clinics, group runs, club coaching, social events, etc.  For more information or to join, click here:

Registration:  Online registration will close at Midnight on Sunday 11/19/23.  There will be no packet pickup or race day registration.

Race Day packet pick-up:
Available from 7:00-7:45 am on-site near HomeGoods, just north of the Food Lion.
At 7:30 am we will be handing out bibs only with shirts available for pickup after the race.  Make sure that you are in line early, in the past we started the race late and the volunteers working packet pickup were unable to participate in the race, so even if you are in line before 7:30, we will be handing out only bibs starting at 7:30... 
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, please help us help our community members in need - your donations of canned goods and non-perishable food items will be collected and delivered to our local food pantry, thank you!
