These courses are a runner’s dream: fast, flat, and offer out-of-this-world scenic views. The road races will start near the Jekyll Island Convention Center, travel north along Beachview Drive, turn at each race’s half-way point, and return south along the oceanfront path. These races are fun for athletes of all skill levels and ages, and the 10k is a qualifier for the AJC Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta, Georgia.
Medals will be awarded to the first, second, and third place finishers, both males and females, and by age groups.
Race Location: Start – Jekyll Island Convention Center; Finish – Great Dunes Beach Park
Race Start Time: 8 a.m. – 10k; 8:15 a.m, – 5k

New for 2019, Turtle Crawl includes a one-mile Fun Run along the beach. This race offers a great opportunity for families to race together, taking in the scenery of Jekyll Island’s shore. Minimum age for participants in the Fun Run is three and up, as strollers are not recommended.
All participants will receive a race T-shirt and all other aspects included in registration, but awards will not be given for the Fun Run.
Race Location: Start & finish near Great Dunes Beach Park
Race Start Time: 9:30 a.m.
A popular new addition to Turtle Crawl, the Ghost Crawler – for those of you who want to support the Georgia Sea Turtle Center, but prefer to sleep in on a Saturday morning.

Turtle Crawl was created in 2003 as a fundraiser for the Georgia Sea Turtle Center (GSTC). Since that time, the event and its participants have raised more than $100,000 to help save sea turtles. In just 11 years of operation, the Georgia Sea Turtle Center has provided care for more than 3,000 patients, including a variety of sea turtle species and other coastal wildlife. GSTC has also provided environmental education for more than 1,200 groups, and last year welcomed more than 109,000 guests in the Center from near and far.
