It’s been stated that the best way to explore a destination is to run through it! The Outer Banks Marathon, held each Veteran’s Day weekend, will welcomes you to the history-rich Outer Banks!

An event for all ages and for the inner explorer in all of us, this year, in 2020, we celebrate the 15th running of the Outer Banks Marathon.

 ​This year will undoubtedly look different than in year's past. With adaptations for a safe and exciting return to racing, we are striving to offer, along with TowneBank and Surf Pediatrics, a challenging weekend of multi-distance Outer Banks running events for the whole family to enjoy!
