Run 5K Under The Sunset While Saving Sea Turtles At This Unique Event

Work out, party, and save the turtles!

There’s nothing better than unique events that are sustainable and which support movements that matter. And this is definitely one of those!

Experience the beautiful sunsets of Isle of Palms while working out and saving the turtles at this incredible run organized by the South Carolina Aquarium. The 5k Turtle Trek is a beach run/walk for kids and adults on Saturday, October 9.

All proceeds from the run will be donated to the Sea Turtle Care Center and the Aquarium’s Conservation initiatives. Plus, before the run, you will be able to join the Aquarium’s staff for a beach sweep.

You can sign up at the South Carolina Aquarium website. Your registration includes timed-race entry, a t-shirt, a reusable race bag, and a decal.

If you’re especially pumped after the run, don’t miss the after-party. It will be hosted by the Windjammer, and they’ll have live music from Moxie. A portion of the drink proceeds will support the Sea Turtle Care Center too!
