Turtle Trot is virtual this year! Runners and walkers of all ages are invited to hit the pavement wherever they choose for this year’s race.
Register today and then prepare for the chase – at your own pace, in your own space – in support of Kiwanis Club of Belton, Texas.
While we may not all be in the same place on race day, we can still run, walk or jog together in spirit as we celebrate 14 years of celebrating turtles!
Kiwanis is a world-wide service organization with an emphasis on serving children. Every penny raised from the Turtle Trot will be used to support children, both in our community and communities around the world.
If you want to add a little swag to your run, we are also sponsoring a turtle costume contest! Prizes will be awarded to:
Team with the most members
Most creative team
Best turtle costume
Event details and schedule
Participate in this virtual race from anywhere you choose! You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, or any other location you choose.
Once you register, complete the race between Saturday, April 24 and Friday, May 7. You’re encouraged to complete the race on Apr. 24 to mimic the feeling of community when participating in a traditional in-person race, but feel free to choose any day that works for you!
Track your distance (3.1 miles) using your favorite fitness app (MapMyRun, Strava, RunKeeper, etc.), take a screenshot and submit your results to be entered into a random prize drawing. All submissions are due by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 12.
Submit your times and pictures to the Turtle Festival Facebook page:
