OBX GO FAR BUNNY HOP 5K & JELLY BEAN FUN RUN. WE ARE GOING TO COLOR MORE THAN EASTER EGGS FOR THE BUNNY HOP 5K & JELLY BEAN FUN RUN! Spring is a time of celebration; what better way to GO FAR than coloring ourselves like Easter eggs! WHAT THAT MEANS TO YOU... We will have celebration powder at the start of this run, on the course and finish. No worries, the celebration powder is 100% colored cornstarch. AND THE BEST PART...you will be supporting a program designed to fight childhood obesity! Proceeds from this race will help to support our local youth running program that serves over 800 children each year throughout Dare County. By putting on your running shoes, you will help us reach out to less fortunate families that are unable to afford for their children to participate in the program. This fundraiser will also help cover the costs associated with our OBX GO FAR 5K Children’s Races that we hold twice a year at the completion of their training.
