Storm the Beach is the only Adventure/Obstacle course held on the beautiful oceanfront beaches of the Outer Banks. Run, crawl, carry, and endure the challenging and fun sand filled course held this year at Jennettes' Pier in Nags Head, North Carolina. 

WOW!!!! Thanks OBSE for a spectacular Storm the Beach. When my teenager looks at me and says "I can't wait to do this again next year", then you know you have done something right!!!!!! Thanks for a great Sunday morning at the beach. Storm the Beach was the best time I have ever had while "running" and I uses that term loosely! Thanks again to OBSE and to ALL the volunteers who supported us today! You guys rock!! ~ 2013 Storm the Beach participant.

How Many Obstacles? What Kind of Obstacles?
The number of obstacles depends on which race you sign up for. 5 Milers will have the most and .75 Milers will have very few.
You will climb over/under things, you will get sandy you may even get wet (no swimming for the 3 Milers and .75 Milers. But you will get in the water!). Check out our video!
Teams consist of 2 - 20 members.
Family Teams welcome! Ages 5 and up can participate! Click here for info on age/race requirements.
What to Wear?  A Costume! If not going for the costume then wear a t-shirt and shorts. You will be climbing and jumping and crawling and make sure there are no wardrobe malfunctions. (there will be a photographer there!) Don't wear anything that you are afraid to damage, tear, stain, stretch. Shoes should definitely be worn. Gloves perhaps, but they will probably get wet and soggy. SUNSCREEN IS A MUST!
What to Bring? A sense of humor! Actually, a beach towel, change of clothes, some flip flops, sunglasses for later. There will not be a bag check available so either have your crew/friend hold your stuff or leave it in your car/house.
