Run for the Turtles virtually, anywhere on Earth!
Sea turtles don’t spend all their time at the nesting beach—they travel hundreds of miles, independently, through the world’s oceans! Inspired by these masters of “social distancing,” Mote Marine Laboratory is bringing its 34th annual Run for the Turtles from its original home on Siesta Beach to you, wherever you are, with our first-ever all-virtual Run supporting these threatened and endangered reptiles.
Participate in our virtual 5K run or 1-mile fun run/walk any time during July 10-Sept. 10, 2020, anywhere on Earth. Registration is $35 for each adult and $25 for each child (age 13 and younger). Registration is open now and closes at 12 a.m. the morning of Sept. 10.
Runners registered before July 1: Your registration will be carried forward to our virtual run and you will receive your T-shirt in the mail during the virtual Run period.
Runners registered after July 1 may receive their T-shirts around or after the end of the Run period.
