About This Activity 

Help injured and sick turtles and other wildlife and support our nature education activities at Long Branch Nature Center by participating in the Turtle Trot 5K on Sunday, May 15, 2016. This is a family-friendly, chip-timed run on a certified course on the Four Mile Run and Washington and Old Dominion Trails in Arlington, VA. Prizes are awarded for top finishers and all finishers receive the Turtle Trot logo tote bag. We’ll also have live turtles from the nature left, activities for kids, and the “real” turtle race after the run..
