Run, jog or walk for animals in this summer’s most exciting inaugural race, the Georgia Aquarium 5k: Turtle Trot! Come for the fast and flat course and stay for the post-race hospitality and high-energy DJ.
The Turtle Trot will take place in the heart of downtown Atlanta and is perfect for beginners and seasoned runners alike. Registration includes a dry-fit t-shirt, a finisher’s medal, runner’s hospitality and a sponsor fair at the end of the race. The top overall male and female finishers will each win an up-close animal encounter for two and top finishers from each age group will receive recognition certificates. 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.
All proceeds from the Turtle Trot go to Georgia Aquarium’s research and conservation programs that directly benefit aquatic species, including turtles.
If you feel like escaping Windward Place Apartments in Alpharetta, Georgia for the day, this event is a perfect opportunity to do just that!
