The OBX Turkey Trot is a 5k and children’s fun run to support the non-profit organization, OBX GO FAR (Go Out For A Run). We are a non-profit children’s program designed to fight childhood obesity by educating children on healthy habits and training for a 5K or Fun Run.  Your support in our fundraiser event would help us scholarship more children into the program.  Last fall 260 children participated in OBX GO FAR and 48 received scholarships!

This is a family fun event, if you want to know your time wear a watch or make sure you look at the clock at the finish line! Parents are encouraged to come out and run with their children. Online registration is now open for 5K $35(+$3 on-line transaction fee) and 1 Mile Fun Run  $15(+$3 on-line transaction fee).  Each registered participant will receive our awesome Family Flock T-shirt!
