The 5th Annual Outer Banks Marathon was held on November the 14th 2010 with more than 5000 runners from all over the world and the Unites States running and walking the 26.2 mile stretch of beautiful scenery from Kitty Hawk to downtown Manteo on Roanoke Island. The weather was just perfect with sunshine and temperatures in the upper 60s.
Surf or Sound Realty was a proud sponsor of Mile Marker 25 located in Manteo, near the finish line. Volunteers from the company, along with their friends and family, found it very rewarding to encourage all the runners and pass out water and Gatorade to the marathon participants. It was a great treat to see all the runners and walkers have so much energy after so many miles. For participants and volunteers alike, this memorable experience is truly one of a kind.
The Outer Banks Marathon is one of the events organized by Outer Banks Sporting Events (OBSE).
