National Running Day, held annually on the first Wednesday in June, is a day when runners everywhere declare their passion for running. It is a coast-to-coast celebration of a sport and activity that is simple, inexpensive, and fun. It’s the perfect way for longtime runners to reaffirm their love of running and for beginners to kick off a lifetime and life-changing commitment.
Outer Banks Runcations is excited to celebrate National Running Day by partnering with the OBX Hospital’s new Urgent Care Center and the Town of Southern Shores to kick off a summer of healthy living, running and racing. With such an active running community on the Outer Banks they are encouraging both long time runners and people that are looking to make positive changes in their lives to come out and celebrate by participating in the National Running Day 5k.
