Thanksgiving 5K

Fall has arrived on the Outer Banks! Cooler weather, savory food, time with family, and pumpkin spice everything. Thanksgiving Day is just a few weeks away and we’re more than ready. Many of you that choose to spend your Thanksgiving holiday on the Outer Banks already know that it is absolutely gorgeous this time of year. The mild weather is perfect for outdoor activities, such as running. Race season is here!

Thanksgiving Race Medal


Thanksgiving Day is a day to give thanks….and eat! In recent years, it has become a tradition for many families to meet in the morning prior to the feast to run a 5K or fun run together. It’s all about balance, right?


Twiddy & Company is proud to sponsor The OBX Running Company’s 2019 Wild Turkey 5K & Fun Run in Corolla. The races will take place on Thursday, November 28th, at Whalehead in Historic Corolla, just a short stroll away from Twiddy’s Corolla office and many vacation homes in Corolla Light.


The fun run begins at 7:55 am and the 5K begins at 8:15 am. Registration is open, and the race is expected to sell out. We’ve been fortunate enough to have a sneak peek at the festive t-shirts and uniquely-designed finisher medal. What a cool souvenir to bring home from a Thanksgiving vacation! The OBX Running Company will also collect canned goods and non-perishable food items for the local food bank.
