Parking for Nags Head Woods 5K


Shuttle Service

Shuttles will run continuously between the OBX Bowling Alley and Nags Head Woods Preserve from 6:00 AM until 10:30 AM. The shuttles are not handicap accessible, but we will work our hardest to accommodate anyone that wants to come to the event. We recommend arriving early enough to allow for time to shuttle from the bowling alley to the race. It usually takes about 5-10 min per shuttle ride, and then there is a short walk to the race site. As many people will be utilizing the shuttles, please allow for extra time.

If you are staying in the area near the race, you may walk to the site or even bike down if you like.

Parking @ OBX Bowling Alley

Bowling Alley Address: 200 W Satterfield Landing Rd, Nags Head, NC 27959

Please note the yellow shaded box on the NORTH side of the bowling alley. Please park there and que up for a shuttle with our shuttle attendant. There will likely be a que for the shuttle from 6:30am until 7:15am, so please be patient as we safely escort everyone to the race area. There is plenty of parking between all of the shops here, but the shuttles will depart and return to the Bowling Alley Parking Lot.


After the race, shuttles will escort anyone at the race site back to the Bowling Alley more or less on demand. We understand that some people will be in a hurry to make it to soccer games and other events. We will try our best to accommodate everyone. If you’re able to stay and hang out for a beer and our post-race BBQ, please stay and enjoy the atmosphere in the preserve!
