Turtle Trot

September 5, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

Bring your family, get some exercise, and enjoy the natural beauty of Bald Head Island! At the BHI Conservancy’s Turtle Trot 5K, participants can run as fast or as slow as they’d like as they move through the island’s ancient maritime forest and over the pristine beaches. All proceeds support the BHI Conservancy’s mission of fostering community-based barrier island conservation, education, and preservation – including our nationally recognized Sea Turtle Protection Program. 8:30AM – Registration 9:30AM – Race Begins! *OFF-ISLAND RUNNERS: Take the 8:00AM Ferry from Deep Point Marina, Southport, NC. BHI Conservancy staff will provide ferry tickets at the ferry gate. Once on BHI, take the tram to the Conservancy to register and start race.

The BHI Conservancy reserves the right to postpone or cancel a Turtle Trot due to unsafe weather conditions.
