Come and enjoy a scenic run through some of the prettiest terrain that the central Outer Banks has to offer with this race that has been going strong for more than 35 years. The Annual Nags Head Woods 5K Run is a great running event that falls on Mother’s Day Weekend, and which features plenty of reasons to put on your sneakers and hit the road, and the sandy, wooded trails.

The Annual Nags Head Woods 5K Run features several corresponding events, which includes a "Run the race before the race” pre-event competition that is only limited to just 50 contestants, and which features plenty of bragging rights and unique finisher medals. The main event begins at 8 a.m., and entails an out-and-back course that covers the rolling and scenic terrain of hard-packed trail through the woods. Hosted by the North Banks Rotary Club, the Annual Nags Head Woods 5K Run has earned a distinguished reputation as the longest running race for charity on the Outer Banks. Engaging for all ages, and including a special Fun Run for folks who just want to get outside and enjoy the fresh salty air, the Annual Nags Head Woods 5K Run is an event that runners won’t want to miss.
