We will be working closely with the state and local authorities to implement all necessary Covid measures to have a safe in-person event. Modifications may include removal of post race activities, wave starts, and modified courses. We cannot predict what March will look like in terms of the current pandemic, but we are committed to doing everything we can to host a live event. Please make sure you are aware of our refund policy (found both on the registration page and under our rules page) prior to signing up. We hope to see everyone in March!
In 2019 we premiered the Blackbeard’s Revenge 100 Mile, 100 mile relay and 100 Kilometer race. It was an awesome first year and we are excited to have the event back again in 2021! This point to point race will take athletes the length of the Outer Banks from Corolla to Hatteras.
Why the name “Revenge”, you ask? The Outer Banks are finicky. Temperatures could be 80 or they could be 30 degrees. Winds could be calm but will most likely be much higher. This course is flat, but it can also be lonely and seem never-ending at times. This event is going to be fun, but I promise, it WILL test you! Come on out and try the 100 mile or 100 K race. If you are not ready for those distances yet, make your way to the Outer Banks as a relay and have some fun running with us! The course is 100% paved road with beautiful views, friendly people, and great memories all along the way!
Please read this Athlete Guide before you register for the race to make sure it’s the right event for you!

Please make sure you check out the ever-updating athlete guide regarding parking. Athletes will have plenty of spots to park near both start lines. At aid stations and relay exchange zones, make sure you are parked in lots and not illegally on the side of the road or in someone’s yard. If you are a part of a crew or a relay please do not hang out in lots for long periods of time, so that others can access their athletes as well.
