Start off your Independence Day by supporting an OBX treasure - the Outer Banks Running Club invites you to run/walk/overcome 2 miles on the tallest natural sand dune system in the eastern US! Attracting runners looking for a "unique" challenge (and drawing a very competitive field), we also welcome people to walk the course (not "just a walk in the park" though)! 1/4 mile Fun Run also available.
