Summers at the OBX are marked by long lazy days that melt into one another. We tell time by the sun, the tides and the ferry schedule. There are only 3 days that exist in OBX summers. Memorial Day – the day your shoes come off and the fun begins. July 4th – the day of picnics and fireworks and Labor Day – the days shoes come back on and we go back to the real world.
Experience the OBX virtually this summer! Run from Bald Head Island, NC to Sandbridge, VA. 300 miles. Between Memorial Day, May 25, 2020 to Labor Day, September 7, 2020.
We know it is almost summer time so we will do the math for you!
300 miles – 105 days – Thats a little shy of 3 miles a day – every day for 105 days. (2.87miles to be exact) Thats about 20 miles a week and about 80 miles a month.
Here is how it works:
1. Register and invite your friends to join you
2. Run anytime/anywhere and log your miles
3. Join the virtual community of fellow OBX runners.
