To Benefit: Sea Turtle Preservation Society
About this Virtual Run: The Turtle Krawl 5k Run/Walk will be held on September 9, 2017 in Indialantic, Florida. The Turtle Krawl is the largest 5k race in Brevard County and is the Sea Turtle Preservation Society’s biggest fundraiser. Known for gorgeous race shirts and awesome finisher medals, sea turtle lovers from around the world who are unable to attend the physical race have been asking for a virtual Turtle Krawl for years. Due to overwhelming demand, STPS has partnered with Virtual Strides to host a Turtle Krawl virtual 5k in 2017.
Run, walk, or ‘krawl’ 3.1 miles whenever and wherever you want to support the sea turtles! All participants will receive a custom digital race bib, a beautiful Turtle Krawl tech shirt featuring artwork from renowned artist Michael “Nemo” Nemnich, and a Turtle Krawl finisher’s medal. This year’s medal is a magnificent 4″ sea turtle, featuring a rounded translucent shell that opens to reveal the 2017 Turtle Krawl artwork.
