TowneBank Outer Banks Marathon 

"The OBX is a beauty of a place and a beauty of a race. I discover new things every Year. And I've made some good friends from the Outer Banks. It is a lot of fun to catch up on the news each year when I visit. It's especially nice to be remembered and welcomed back each year." ~  D Vernes

"...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
