Since 2003, Jekyll Island has hosted the Turtle Crawl, a set of races benefiting the Georgia Sea Turtle Center. Jekyll Island’s picturesque oceanfront and maritime forest are settings for two triathlons – the International Distance Triathlon and the Sprint Distance Triathlon, both sanctioned by USA Triathlon. Returning for 2018, a 10K race will accompany the 5K run, providing race fun for the whole family. All races are timed, and take place on certified courses.
From elite, world-class athletes to running novices, the Turtle Crawl races offer something for every athlete at every skill level. With four races to choose from, Turtle Crawl Festival, and a unique island getaway, Turtle Crawl Weekend on Jekyll is a not to be missed “race-cation” for all families.
The full weekend event will take place Friday, May 11, through Sunday, May 13, 2018.
