Celebrating its 35th year in 2018, this race course weaves through The Nature Conservancy’s Nags Head Woods Ecological Preserve, one of the best remaining examples of mid-Atlantic Maritime forest. The main race starts at 8 a.m. on the second Saturday in May. It is an out-and-back course that covers gently rolling terrain on a gravel roadway. North Banks Rotary Club hosts the race, and all net proceeds go to support local charities, scholarships and military relief charities. All ages can enjoy a run or walk in The Village Realty Fun Run, an out-and-back fun run that covers 1 mile of the 5K race course. Now there's even a double race challenge if you have the stamina for back to back 5Ks! All finishers receive a medal. Runners age 5 and younger can run or walk for free if accompanied by an entrant at least 16 years old.
