Over 3600 runners competed in the 2nd Annual OBX®Marathon and half marathon on Sunday, November 11th . This year, 50 elite runners from across America and as far away as Africa completed for over $26,000 in prize money. The main sponsor for this event is The Outer Banks Visitors Bureau. Runners of all capabilities followed the marathon route through maritime forest, past Wright Brothers National Memorial, Jockey’s Ridge State Park, and the Roanoke Sound. The date for next year’s event has already been set – Sunday, November 9, 2008. It is wonderful to have this type of event coming to the Outer Banks, where the beauty of the landscape and shore can be shared with so many.
