Sunday Nov. 12 is the big day for the Outer Banks Marathon Weekend, but on Saturday, Nov. 11, the 8K, 5K and Fun Run were the first races of the weekend. The races began and ended at the Wright Brothers Memorial in Kill Devil Hills. With temperatures in the 50s, it was a good day for runners—not too hot, but warm enough to avoid pulled muscles.

Tomorrow’s Outer Banks Marathon and half marathon will leave the starting gate at 7:00 a.m. at Fort Raleigh National Historic Site on Roanoke Island.
