1st Annual Shore Break 5K & Tide Pool Fun Run
The 1st annual Shore Break 5K will be held at 8am and the Tide Pool Fun Run on the beach will be immediately following the 5K at 9am. Run through Kinnakeet Shores on gorgeous Cape Hatteras Island, on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. This race terrain will keep you entertained the entire 3.1 miles, from paved roads through winding beautiful Kinnakeet Shores to wooden bridges, boardwalks, beach walkways, a few steps up and over the dunes and finally finishing with a unbelievable view of the Atlantic Ocean as the final stretch takes you to the beach. Run, jog or walk, all are welcome! Come celebrate Hatteras Island and give back to a great community! All proceeds from this event will go toward the Hatteras Island Youth Education Fund and the OBX GO FAR (Go Out For A Run) Children's Health and Nutrition Program.
