Turtle Trot 5K

 

Georgia Aquarium’s annual Turtle Trot 5k is back for its second year! Whether your motivation is to get in shape or make an impact on aquatic animal conservation, join us on June 1 as we run, jog and walk for our one world ocean.

The Turtle Trot will take place in the heart of downtown Atlanta and is perfect for beginners and seasoned runners alike.

Registration includes:
- Collectible t-shirt
- A finisher’s medal
- Runner’s hospitality
- A sponsor fair at the end of the race

The 5k’s top male and female finishers from each age group will receive one general admission ticket to Georgia Aquarium. The top male and female finishers in the Masters age group (40+) will win an up-close animal encounter for two (valued up to $130). The top overall male and female finishers will win an up-close animal encounter for two (valued up to $130) and a Big Peach Running Co. gift card!

The event will begin and end at Pemberton Place, giving participants easy access to Georgia Aquarium, World of Coca-Cola, Centennial Olympic Park, and more. Children may participate in the 5k run, so long as they complete the course at the minimum pace of 20 minutes per mile. There will also be a free Toddler Fun Run 50-meter dash for children ages 0-4 who may not be ready for a full 5k run. All proceeds from the Turtle Trot go to Georgia Aquarium’s research and conservation programs that directly benefit aquatic species, including turtles. Sign up today!
