"I have to say The Outer Banks race is one of the best around. The people that organize it are amazing and always super helpful. The course totally rocks! And then the community support is just phenomenal. I may be partial to it because it is in the Outer Banks and I love it there but I have done a number of full marathons, even more half marathons and for me this is by far the best around. Thank you for all that you do and for putting on a great race!" ~ CB Aldie, VA
"The OBX is a beauty of a place and a beauty of a race. I discover new things every Year. And I've made some good friends from the Outer Banks. It is a lot of fun to catch up on the news each year when I visit. It's especially nice to be remembered and welcomed back each year." ~ D Vernes
"...after enjoying the hospitality of so many OBXers last week before, during and after my race, I’m not surprised. Y’all have done an outstanding job of promoting this race and executing every detail. This entire experience merits a High Five Fun Factor! Thank you, hope to see you next year!" ~ E. Anderson
