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. The Outer Banks is absolutely gorgeous this time of year. Many of you that choose to spend your Thanksgiving holiday on the Outer Banks already know. The mild weather is perfect for outdoor activities, such as running. Race season is here!
Thanksgiving Day is known as an eating holiday. In recent years, it has become a day where family members meet prior to the feast to run a 5K together. It’s all about balance, right?! Twiddy & Company is proud to sponsor The OBX Running Company’s 2018 Wild Turkey 5K & Fun Run in Corolla. The races will take place on Thursday, November 22nd, 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! In the spirit of Thanksgiving, canned goods and non-perishable food items will be collected for the local food bank.
The OBX Running Company holds many fun races throughout the year. They partner with a variety of local charities here on the Outer Banks. We invite you and your family to join the Twiddy & Company family on Thanksgiving Day in Corolla for the Wild Turkey 5K & Fun Run!
