The Sea Turtle 5K Run / Walk course is an intermediate hiking trail with scenic views and bridges. The route is not stroller friendly, but we will have a Kids' Fun Run before the 5K and supervised play for children during the 5K.
The Sea Turtle 5K was organized by Caleigh, a Senior Girl Scout with Troop 8397, of the Manitou Council.  In early January, she was accepted by Girl Scouts of the USA and Outward Bound Costa Rica, to attend the Scuba and Sea Turtle Adventure Destination. During this destination, she will spend two weeks in Costa Rica and Panama assisting at a sea turtle conservation, helping with service projects to benefit the local village and participate in leadership building activities along the way. Proceeds from the Sea Turtle 5K will apply to tuition, airfare, and supplies required for the destination.
