Enjoy an active outing that starts with a scenic venture through the heart of Nags Head and ends with live music, drinks, food, and a fun party atmosphere at this unique 5K that celebrates both music and active adventures on the Outer Banks. The Band In The Sand 5K is a fun out-and-back run or walk that ends with a celebration that will keep visitors and residents alike smiling and a blast well after the sun goes down.

The Band In The Sand 5K starts at 6 p.m., and the ensuing course presents a lovely and cooler evening view of some of the highlights of Nags Head, which includes both the sandy coastal regions as well as sections of the famed Nags Head Woods. After the race, all participants are encouraged to take a break from their adventures and to relax with a post-race party that features live music, food, beer and beverages, and plenty of fun to go around. Participants can sign up for the race in advance online, and both competitive runners and everyday explorers are welcome to join in the fun. With lots of action from start to finish, the Band In The Sand 5K is a running event that can’t be missed.
