This race presents a rare opportunity to complete an ultramarathon on 100% paved road. Join us for beautiful views, friendly people, and great memories all along the way!

Blackbeard is part of our location's folklore, but why do we call the race Blackbeard's "Revenge"? The Outer Banks are finicky. Temperatures could be 80 and they could be 20 degrees. Winds could be calm or gusting. The course is flat, but it may seem never-ending at times. This event is going to be fun, but we promise, it WILL test you!

If you're not ready to complete 100 miles or 100k yet, make your way to the Outer Banks as a 100-mile relay team and have some fun running with us!
