Outer Banks Sporting Events welcomes the Outer Banks Hospital as the 2015 Sponsor of the First Flight 5K! The Hospital’s Couch to 5K annual run will utilize the First Flight 5K course, offering free sponsored registration to employees of the Outer Banks Hospital, Dare County and Town employees and Dare County Schools’ Employees in an effort to get local folks off the couch and “running” a 5K (3.1miles).
“We want as many people as possible to get out and run or walk!”, stated Amy Montgomery. “This is a great way to let people experience the fun and excitement of completing a race. Many of them may never have thought that they could do this. It’s a great feeling of accomplishment to cross that Finish line and collect your medal!”
The First Flight 5K is a fun pirate-themed race taking place on the grounds of the Wright Brothers National Park in Kill Devil Hills. This beautiful venue is a remarkable run alongside the historic monument celebrating the first flight. Special thanks go out to National Parks Service for their support of this community event. The Wright Brothers would be proud!
The Flying Pirate Half Marathon & First Flight 5K Weekend (April 18 & 19), is one of 4 annual event weekends produced by Outer Banks Sporting Events (OBSE). 100% of net proceeds from these events support the missions of the Outer Banks Relief Foundation and the Dare Education Foundation.
This event is sponsored in part by the Outer Banks Visitor’s Bureau.Contact: Peggy Stovall Marketing Director, Outer Banks Sporting Events 2234 South Lark Street, Nags Head, NC 27959 POB 265, Kill Devil Hills, NC 27948 (252)255-6273 office; (252)261-6296 fax; www.obxse.org
