Barrier Island Group proudly presents first annual Holiday Hustle 5K – OBX Today

Barrier Island Group is proud to announce their first Holiday Hustle 5K to be held on Saturday, December 9, at 3:45 p.m. at the Elizabethan Gardens in Manteo. This event, which is sure to become a new holiday tradition, is a family-friendly twilight 5K run or walk through beautiful Fort Raleigh and the surrounding area and ending at the Elizabethan Gardens. There will also be an “Elf Dash” for children ten and under who do not want to walk the 3.1 miles.

Registration for the 5K includes an eco-friendly reusable cup for use on the course and at the after party, an incredible finisher medal, a cozy commemorative winter scarf and FREE admission to the amazing WinterLights display inside the Elizabethan Gardens for the jolliest post-race party ever! Stroll through the WinterLights display, toast some marshmallows, enjoy hot chocolate and tasty treats, visit with Santa and get your holiday season started in style!

In honor of this season of giving, proceeds benefit the Outer Banks SPCA so you will be having a great time while also helping your community. What a perfect way to kick off the holiday season!!
