Outer Banks Sporting Events


The Outer Banks Sporting Events invites you to participate in our race events. It’s fun, healthy and with every race registration, you help people in need. Our net proceeds go to the Dare Education Foundation and the Outer Banks Relief Foundation.

Whether you’re a pro, a beginner or somewhere in between, you’ll find a race that fits your goals and your style. Our race distances range from 1 mile, 5K, 8K, half marathon, full marathon, obstacle course races, and triathlons. You can walk, run, swim, bike and then party to celebrate your accomplishment.
