The 2nd Annual Dare to Scare 5K & Sweet Treat Fun Run will be held at the Dare County Center on Saturday, October 27, 2018. The 5K will begin at 9:00 a.m. and the Fun Run at 10:00 a.m. This event will benefit the Annual Dare County Center Toy Drive held annually in December that serves over 400 local youth residents. The race is being held in collaboration with the Dare County Center, Coastal Studies Institute, OBX Go Far, and the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau.
The 5K is unique as it leads runners and walkers along the Marshall and Gussie Collins Walkway through meandering scenic woodlands and along the marsh on Roanoke Island. Participants are encouraged to dress in their Halloween best for a chance to win a prize. Prizes will also be awarded to the top three male and top three female finishers. Pre-race activities will be held at CSI for runners and walkers to participate in prior to enjoying the course.
