Take advantage of an opportunity to enjoy two of the things coastal North Carolina is known for - fantastic beaches and barbecue – with this racing event that combines a wealth of OBX activities in a single and fun-filled evening. The Sunset 5k & Carolina Pig Pickin is held at the stunning Jennette’s Pier in the heart of Nags Head, and is a fun and lightly competitive race that cruises by the beaches and soundside regions where the sunset is at its natural best. Walkers, joggers, and runners are all welcome to attend, and to enjoy the scene while engaging on a fast-paced tour of the central Outer Banks.

At the end of the race, participants will be treated to a post-race party that includes fresh pulled Carolina style pork BBQ, country potato salad, dessert, sweet tea and lemonade. Trophies will be awarded to the top three male and female finishers, and everyone will get an event T-shirt as well as a souvenir race bib and a finisher medal. The entry fee is minimal, with discounts for active duty or retired military and kids 12 and under. Fun for everyone in the family, this causal race showcases the best of the beach with great scenery, great food, and plenty of good times.
