The First Annual Ocracoke Island 5k and 1 Mile Family Fun Run will take place Saturday April 28, 2012 at 8:00am. This event is a benefit for Ocracoke Community Radio WOVV and the Ocracoke School Athletic Boosters Club.
The 5K run will take place in the Village of Ocracoke through historic neighborhoods, by Ocracoke Harbor, and by the 2nd oldest lighthouse in the United States in continuous service. The course is basically flat. All accommodations are within walking or biking distance to the start/finish line.
There will be a one mile family fun run immediately following the 5K. The top three male and female runners will receive an award as well as the top three male and female finishers of each age category. Everyone completing the Family Run Run will receive a wrist band recognizing the event. All 5K runners will receive a t-shirt (sizes not guaranteed after April 19th pre-registration) with local artist design.
Beginning 11:30am, Gaffer's Sports Pub will host a post run party. There will be no charge for the party for 5K runners. Food and beverages will be provided.
