Virginia Aquarium Turtle Trot

Virginia Aquarium Turtle Trot

June 14th- 16th

On June 14, the Virginia Aquarium is celebrating 34 years of being on a mission to inspire conservation of the marine environment through education, research, and sustainable practices. On June 16, World Sea Turtle Day, we are recognizing the important work being done to protect the world’s threatened sea turtle populations. We thought, “Why not combine the celebrations?”

In partnership with New Realm Brewing Co., we invite you to our first ever virtual run/walk benefit event. Proceeds will support the future of the world’s oceans and help us continue providing educational opportunities, outstanding animal care, important Stranding Response efforts, and so much more!

What is a virtual 5K run/walk? After registering, participants will log their time, steps, and distances on the registration page between June 14 and June 16. Registration and logs must be completed by June 16.

We encourage participants to wear blue in honor of our anniversary and share a photo or video of your run using #VAQTurtleTrot @VAAquarium on your social pages!
