9th Annual Turtle Trot 5K Run/Walk

May 10, 2014 @ 7:00 am - 12:00 pm

The unique 5K course traverses three barrier islands and takes participants through a shady maritime hammock ecosystem on a hard-packed shell. No part of the course requires running through beach sand. The course ends with a dramatic finish at the beach pavilion, where refreshments will be served and awards are presented.

Stick around after the race for a dip in the Gulf! The race is open to competitive runners, walkers and first-time race participants. Proceeds from the race benefit the Friends of Lovers Key, Inc., a volunteer non-profit group that is raising money for a Visitor Education Center to be built at Lovers Key State Park.

Registration Opens at 7:00 AM. Race Start – 8:00 AM

To register, visit www.FriendsOfLoversKey.org
