Start your Thanksgiving Day with a little action before you start digging into the turkey feast with this annual run that features a family-friendly course, and plenty of ways to explore the local Outer Banks communities. The Outer Banks Running Club OBX Gobbler 5K & Fun Run is an engaging and scenic trek through the Village of Nags Head which is open to runners, joggers, and walkers of all ages, and which is sure to be a great kick-off to Turkey Day for everyone in the crew.

The 5K course winds through the heart of south Nags Head and veers along the Roanoke Sound, presenting stellar views along the way, and ample ways to explore this scenic corner of the coastline. In addition to the 5K, folks are also free to sign up for the Fun Run, which is roughly 9/10 of a mile in length, and which is a family friendly event that everyone can enjoy. Folks are free to run, jog, walk, or trot through either of the two courses, and finisher awards are given to all participants who cross the finish line. With proceeds going to the Outer Banks Running Club, this annual event is a great way to rev up for a Thanksgiving Day feast on the Outer Banks.
