The Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation 5K & 1-Mile Run takes place the Saturday of Columbus Day weekend through the neighborhood of Kinnakeet Shores on the Soundside in Avon. Throughout the years the race has grown and evolved. We continue to encourage participants to dress in their most outrageous “Pinked Out” outfits. From dogs to strollers, we welcome those young and old to come walk, jog or run. The beautiful 5K course takes you around ponds, past the sound and over a fun bridge. Throughout the race water stations are set up and managed by volunteers to help keep participants hydrated.
You never know what each year will bring as we are always striving to grow and improve the race for all those involved. Be on the lookout for a new colorful surprise this year!
The cost of this event is $35 for the 5K and $20 for the 1-mile Fun Run.
