BOCA RATON — The Gumbo Limbo Nature Center, the only sea turtle rehabilitation center in southern Palm Beach County, is hosting a Race for Sea Turtles to raise money for the nonprofit’s efforts.
The event will be held Sunday, April 9 at 7 a.m. and will include a 10k race and 1 mile walk/run through the Intracoastal neighborhoods of Boca Raton. The race begins at Spanish River Park, at 3001 N. State Road A1A.
The 10k race is chip-timed (provided by Accu Chip) and limited to 1 hour and 45 minutes. The fastest racers in various age categories will earn medals.
The 1 mile walk/run isn’t timed, and Gumbo Limbo is encouraging families and children who prefer a less competitive atmosphere to participate.
Advanced registration for the 10k costs $30 for adults and $20 for children. Advanced registration for the 1-mile walk/run costs $15. All participants will receive a T-shirt.
