Turtle Trot 5K Run
The Town has decided to cancel its annual Turtle Trot 5k scheduled for May 2, 2020 in keeping with current COVID-19 recommendations for social distancing. We greatly appreciate the loyalty of our participants, with many of you coming back year after year – please know that we did not make this decision lightly. The health and well-being of our community is of utmost importance. Mark your calendars, because we look forward to celebrating the 30th anniversary of this hometown tradition with everyone next year on Saturday, May 1, 2021.
We will be working over the next few weeks to refund those who have already registered for the 2020 race. We appreciate your patience. If you have any questions, please call the Jupiter Community Center at 561-741-2400.
