Marathons and half-marathons alike are continuing to grow in popularity as more and more people take notice to the health benefits and pure fun of it all! More recently, races with different themes seem to be growing in trend around the world and some cities (like ours) are even taking the opportunity to transform the event into a weekend-long affair filled with various forms of entertainment.
Choosing to participate in the Outer Banks Marathon and Half-Marathon will not only benefit you in a fitness aspect but it will also allow you to experience a fun-filled weekend with your family and friends. If that doesn’t peak your interest, consider the fact that completing a marathon or half-marathon will also give you unlimited bragging rights! Despite its growing popularity, many runners who compete in the race don’t actually finish. Could you make it to the finish line?
The Outer Banks Marathon Weekend is in its eighth year and is scheduled to take place this weekend, November 8-10, 2013.
