The Stone Harbor Chamber of Commerce invites you to “come out of your shells” and join the Turtle Trot 5K Race and Two-Mile Fun Walk!
The Turtle Trot is a Memorial Day Weekend tradition for many runners, families and beach-loving outdoor enthusiasts! Stone Harbor's beautiful Diamondback Terrapins crossing the town’s roads in search of an area to nest inspired the name of the race, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Diamond Terrapin Program at The Wetlands Institute.
Contrary to its name, the Turtle Trot is a fast course through Stone Harbor’s scenic, residential neighborhoods. Prizes will be awarded to the top three men and the top three women to place in the 5k Race. In addition, the top three men and top three women in six different age categories will also take home medals.
The Fun Walk is an untimed, non-competitive event that is suitable for the entire family. All registered runners and walkers will receive a coveted Turtle Trot t-shirt while supplies last.
