Get your Memorial Day Vacation off to an active and sunny start by participating in the 8th annual Shore Break 5K, which is being held in the heart of Hatteras Island. During this event, runners, walkers, and anyone who wants to enjoy the local Avon sun will embark on a trek through picturesque Kinnakeet Shores on an informal course that includes paved roads, boardwalks, beach walkways, and a few fun but challenging steps over the dunes. The race finishes with an unbeatable view of the Atlantic as participants wind towards the beach, and the inevitable finish line.

Runner, joggers and walkers are all welcome, and all proceeds benefit the Hatteras Island Youth Education Fund (HIYEF). The event ends with a post-race beach party and a hearty pancake breakfast that includes beers from Carolina Brewery for all runners / participants who are 21 years or older. A Tide Pool Fun Run along the beach will also be held immediately after the race at approximately 9 a.m.

Entertaining and accessible for active visitors of all ages and abilities, this race presents a fine opportunity to discover the scenic side of Hatteras Island while enjoying incredible views and plenty of great times, and while benefitting a truly worthy cause.
