100k Route

The 100k course is 63 miles point-to-point

Cutoff: 20-Hours

100k runners will travel the entire length of paved highway on Hatteras Island and just over 10 miles of Bodie Island viewing much of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore via historic Hwy 12.

The 100k course starts at  Epstein St. Public Beach Access (Nags Head) at 3pm on Saturday March 8th. It follows the remainder of the 100-Mile route (63 miles) over Bonner bridge, down Hatteras island, through Hatteras Island Lighthouse park finishing at the “end of the road” on Hatteras Island adjacent to the Ocracoke Island Ferry and directly in front of the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum.

The 100k race has a 20-Hour cutoff.

Runners will cross the 2.5 mi. long Bonner Bridge spanning Oregon Inlet between Bodie Island and Hatteras Island between noon and sunset. All runners will cross Bonner Bridge on foot unless there is risk of injury from wind/weather. In the event of a weather emergency or road closure an alternate course will be in effect. Bonner bridge does not have a coned off right of way.

Wind during the 2012 event was sustained at 28mph, all runners crossed safely on foot without issue.

In-case of severe weather emergency, or road closure an out-and-back course similar to what was used in 2013 will be in effect.

The Graveyard 100 will always be a point-to-point course with the intention of running from Corolla to Hatteras via Hwy 12. The alternate out-and-back course isn’t something we want to implement and will only do so in the event of a weather emergency.

A portion of all entry fees will be donated to the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum to further the preservation, advancement and presentation of the maritime history and shipwrecks of the North Carolina Outer Banks

While this will be a very flat race on pavement (UltraRunning rating 1/1) it may not be entirely easy.

During this time of year all of historic ship wrecking tradition of the Outer Banks could show up to make it an event to remember, and not just for spectacular views.  Come to this event expecting a challenge and beautiful views and you will not be disappointed.

The Graveyard awaits!

The run may be tough, but it may shine and produce a lightning fast champion as well. Yes it’s a race but the Outer banks of North Carolina is a famed vacation destination for good reason. You’re gonna have a magnificent time in the OBX.

100k finishers will receive finishers medals or special silver champions medal.
