"I wanted to write and thank you, your team, and ALL of the volunteers for a wonderful experience yesterday. It had been 24 years since my last full marathon (New York City, 1991) and I could not have picked a better place and / or event to participate in and I have already made my mind up that this is THE event that will conclude my racing season each year. My family and I often vacation in the area in the summer months and when I saw the advertisement in Runners World late last winter, I knew that this was just the excuse I needed to come back in the fall. I have already told many of my runner friends what a wonderful event and experience this was and will highly recommend this event to anyone who asks and for those who don't. Thank you so much for all of your attention to detail and for all of the wonderful freebies you offered to all of the participants. I look forward to participating again next year. ~ D. Staley 2015 participant
"...after enjoying the hospitality of so many OBXers last week before, during and after my race, I’m not surprised. Y’all have done an outstanding job of promoting this race and executing every detail. This entire experience merits a High Five Fun Factor! Thank you, hope to see you next year!" ~ E. Anderson
