This is a family fun event on the beautiful beaches of the Outer Banks featuring the new expansive shores of Nags Head.

There will be finisher medals and Summer Series Shirts to all participants.
This program at Jockeys Ridge State Park will introduce the trees of the park and their benefits to humans and wildlife.

Materials will be provided, and finished trees can be taken home.
