After much consideration, it is with heavy hearts that we announce the postponement of the 2020 Ocracoke Island Runfest Weekend. We are adhering to the CDC's recommendation that in-person events consisting of 50 or more people be canceled or postponed. We had hoped that we could still safely hold this event on April 25th and 26th, but it has become clear that doing so could jeopardize the health of our participants, volunteers and community as a whole.
We still want you to run Ocracoke in 2020! We have decided to hold our Runfest Weekend on November 14th and 15th. It seems fitting that this is one week before the anniversary of the defeat of Blackbeard by Lieutenant Robert Maynard! We are already looking forward to seeing you at the finish line!
