A shout out to our readers who are runners-the 9th Annual Outer Banks Marathon is a little bit less than three weeks away on Veteran’s Day Weekend.
It’s called a marathon because the featured race is a marathon, but the whole weekend is so much more than that.
The Marathon is on Sunday-starts very early in the morning on the Woods Road in Kitty Hawk and 26.2 miles later it ends in Manteo. It is one of the most beautiful runs around, winding through maritime forests, past Jockey’s Ridge State Park and ending in Manteo, which is as pretty a little town as can be imagined.
The whole weekend is filled with activities, including a Sunday half-marathon and a 10K, 5K and fun run on Saturday.
By a rough count there were some 6500 people participating in the races last year, which makes this a pretty popular event. Much of that popularity has happened because Outer Banks businesses, the race organizers and everyone associated with the weekend have gone out of their way to make sure this is about family.
