Do you want to know whether you are the tortoise or the hare? Give it your best shot with family and friends at the 26
th Annual Turtle Trot 5K in Jupiter

The celebrated, annual Turtle Trot 5K Run put on by the Town of Jupiter is taking place on May 7th and the race starts at 7:30am. The Turtle Trot participants must check in at Ocean Cay Park in Jupiter.

Details on the race are as follows: The main Turtle Trot is a “flat out, back and forth” 3.1 mile long race. The competitors will run along the beach road all competing for the first place title. But if you aren’t into racing flat out don’t worry, joggers and walkers are applauded to partake and completion is a celebrated title (both the tortoises and the hares are welcome here!). 
For those who love to compete, there are awards to be won. The awards will be given to 1st-3rd overall male and female and first three places for male and female runners in each of the 15 age groups. Plenty of delectable refreshments and snacks from local restaurants will be served after the race is completed. 

Two years ago two new events were added to the Turtle Trot 5k: “Kids Fun Run” and “Group Registration.” The Kids Fun Run is for kids 11 years and younger to partake in the race. The fun run begins at 7:10 am and some of the local firemen run along with the kids. It is a not a timed race but all of those who finish will get a medal. The Group Registration allows teams of 3 or more runners. The team with the most participants will win an award.
