  • The Surfin’ Turkey 5K starts at 8am and the Puppy Drum Fun Run starts at 9am.

Running this beautiful 5K course through the historic fishing village of Hatteras supports the youth of Hatteras Island. The proceeds from this race support the Hatteras Island Youth Education fund (HIYEF). HIYEF provides funding for educational opportunities and enrichment in Hatteras Island schools. We can’t wait to trot around Hatteras village this Thanksgiving Day as we raise funds to support educational opportunities for Hatteras Island students!  Join us as an individual to run, walk, or jog this beautiful course or sign up as a rafter group with your friends and family!

Water is provided on the course. This is not a timed race; it is a family fun event, if you want to know your time please wear a watch or make sure you look at the clock at the finish line. Non-refundable charity event. Race is rain or shine but will be canceled for safety reasons in the event of severe weather. Slower runners and walkers should start at the back of the corral.

Come on out and run with us! Have fun, enjoy a hot pancake breakfast… and Carolina Brewery will also provide fresh microbrew beer for participants over 21 who would like to enjoy it.
