Marathon running is an incredible activity that attracts hundreds and even thousands of people. Whether you are a runner or a spectator, the Outer Banks Marathon weekend is an exciting event for all attendees! This year, marathon weekend will be held on Friday, November 10 through Sunday, November 12 with all kinds of races, activities and entertainment to enjoy!
From the half-marathon and full marathon to 5K and 8K challenge runs to family fun runs, there is something for everyone! And no matter the race, the routes cover some of the most beautiful terrain on the East Coast: head through the beautiful village of Kitty Hawk, the historic Kill Devil Hills, the incredible maritime forest of Nags Head and downtown Manteo.
The weekend will be chock-full of great food, entertainment and activities for all! Enjoy a pre-race pasta party, post-race celebrations and some free swag for runners! Take the whole family out on Saturday for family fun activities. If you are a spectator, be sure to cheer on the marathon runners during their final leg of the marathon, and enjoy live music, beer and food afterward! Also be sure to take advantage of the free shuttle service to and from the races.
