OBX Sandbar 5K

Enjoy a gorgeous oceanside run and supporting a great cause at the annual OBX Sandbar 5K. This charity race benefits the Outer Banks Relief Foundation, an organization that provides much-needed assistance to local families on the Outer Banks in crisis. Set on the wide flat sands in front of the historic "Old Station" in Kitty Hawk, this race begins at the lifeguard tower at milepost 4.5 and follows the coastline up the beach and back, with miles of gorgeous ocean views along the way. Incredible awards are given to top finishers, including a vacation package on the Outer Banks for the top male and female finishers. Additional awards are distributed to the top 3 finishers in 11 different age groups, so runners of all ages have an excellent shot of running off the beach with a fantastic prize. With proceeds helping Outer Banks friends and neighbors in desperate need of a hand, the scenic OBX Sandbar 5K is a race that everyone can feel good about.
