Swap out your witch’s broomstick for running shoes for this Halloween activity. The Dare to Scare 5K and Sweet Treat Fun Run is an annual event held on the last Saturday of October. The 5K course takes runners from the Roanoke Island’s Coastal Studies Institute to the Dare County Center on the scenic trail full of woodland and marsh views. Prizes are awarded to the top three male and female runners. The Sweet Treat Fun Run follows the 5K and is open to both walkers and runners. Costumes are strongly encouraged, so you can channel your outer Nike as well as inner one for this event. The Dare to Scare 5K and Sweet Treat Fun Run is organized by OBX GoFar, and you can register for either race on their website.
