Running on the Outer Banks

The Outer Banks is a haven for runners and outdoor enthusiasts! The warm temperatures and constant sea breeze, not to mention the gorgeous scenery make the Outer Banks a popular race destination. Enjoy running along the shoreline or over sand dunes or experience Nags Heads Woods -- a world away from the typical beach atmosphere -- an Outer Banks race is something you will never forget!

There are several races held throughout the year from the Outer Banks Marathon in the Fall to the Flying Pirate Half Marathon in the Spring. These races are family events including Kid's Fun Runs and after-race events featuring food, fun, and music. Bring the whole family to the Outer Banks! Atlantic Realty prides itself on helping out of town runners find accommodations and rewards them with a Special Running Vacation Package-- Ask about our RUNOBX Specials and Discounts!!
