Miles Cupcake 5k and Fun Run

May 6, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

This spring we will bring back a fantastic event created by former GO FAR coach Shane Miles. Shane served faithfully as one of the start up GO FAR Coaches when the program had just begun in the Outer Banks and continued to volunteer over the years. OBX Go Far was proud to name it’s Miles College Education Fund in honor of Shane Miles. We sadly lost Shane to cancer a couple of years ago and we are honored to bring back this awesome event in his name, the Miles Cupcake 5K and Fun Run! The proceeds from this event will support Outer Banks Relief Foundations work supporting local families facing cancer and OBX GO FAR non-profit children’s program. This event is all about second chances and celebrating personal victories! We will have special dedication tags in HONOR or in MEMORY of loved ones or friends that you can wear during your run.
Your support will not only benefit the youth of Dare County from Hatteras Island to Duck, it will also help families on the OBX who are fighting cancer. If you cannot join us in person we have a Virtual 5K option for those who would like to support Shane’s mission & OBX GO FAR from afar! Join local Dare County GO FAR youth in our Miles Cupcake 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run presented by OBX Go Far & The Outer Banks Community Foundation on Saturday, May 6th beginning at 8AM! We have a festive start and finish in downtown Manteo at Manteo Elementary School with sparkling medals for every finisher and of course cupcakes.
