About This Activity

The 3rd  annual Race to Save a Species is brought to you by Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC), the leading global charity dedicated to the conservation and protection of whales and dolphins. This year’s participants will be racing to help save the 78 endangered Southern Resident orcas.

This family-friendly race will start and finish in Plymouth, MA, at Nelson Memorial Park and follow a course along the water and follow a course along Plymouth’s historic waterfront.  Fun for beginners, seasoned runners and anyone in between, each racer will receive a souvenir t-shirt with the new 2015 logo design to commemorate the race and their contribution to conservation.
