Our volunteers make our events the best...period!

Race participants consistently agree that our volunteers and community are outstanding in their support of all of the events! The participants feel welcome, appreciated and encouraged because of our volunteers and community support. It is because of YOU that we have established ourselves as a premier destination race that runners will return to. What an accomplishment!

As one of our runners said... “I can’t tell you how friendly and helpful were the many volunteers that I encountered before, during, and after the race.  While your beach is magnificent and your race challenging, I have to tell you that nothing matches the wonderful ‘people’ who helped make your race so great.  Your volunteers and hospitality are the best!”

While the Outer Banks Sporting Events group organizes these races, the staff is small and can’t provide the many services needed to put on such an event as the Half Marathon.  That’s where the OBSE Race Ambassadors…and, hopefully, You… step in!

Thousands of volunteers are needed to staff and set up water stations, work the Expos and offer support to runners at the Starts and Finish. Volunteer teams and themes are welcome!  

The benefits of becoming an OBSE Race Crew Volunteer include fun, friends, fulfillment and a cool Race Crew t-shirt!
