Time to dust off those running shoes and get ready for the 33rd Annual Run for the Turtles! Our run supports the Sea Turtle Conservation & Research Program at Mote Marine Laboratory and is the Program’s major fundraiser — it’s helping us help sea turtles! Registration is live!

For the first time in the history of the run, we will be offering an alternative virtual 1-Mile Fun Run/Walk for those who cannot make it out to the beach on April 6th! Participants will receive our dri-fit run logo tee and  ribbon by mail. The Virtual 1-Mile Fun Run can be ran on your own time anywhere in the United States! We are thrilled to welcome runners across the country who are eager to support STCRP!

On Race Day: Registration begins 6:30 a.m. at the Siesta Key Gazebo, south of the pavilion. The 1-Mile Fun Run or Walk begins at 7:30 a.m. and the 5K Manasota Track Club-Sanctioned Run begins at 8 a.m. Please note: The 1-mile fun run and 5K races are entirely on the beach/sand.
