Thank you runners for making the 2023 event successful!
2023 Killer Dunes 2-Miler
Finish off your Independence Day weekend by supporting an OBX treasure! Outer Banks Sporting Events invites you to run/walk/overcome 2 miles on Jockey's Ridge, the tallest natural sand dune system in the eastern US! Attracting runners looking for a "unique" challenge (and drawing a very competitive field), we also welcome people to walk the course (not just a "walk in the park" though)! Proceeds benefit Friends of Jockey's Ridge, a local non-profit dedicated to supporting, preserving and enhancing Jockey's Ridge State Park.
When: Tuesday, July 4th, 8 a.m.
What: 2-mile run across the dunes
Where: Jockey's Ridge State Park*
Who: Ages 12 & Up
*On-site parking is limited, so please carpool as much as possible on race morning.
Monday, July 3rd, 3-5 p.m.
Tuesday, July 4th, 7-7:30 a.m.
