Last year was a blast at the inaugural Turtle Trot. There was a great group of runners and the fun run had huge turnout. The Hopetown school showed up and all of the students participated. My wife got to run the 5K and she has already signed up for this years event. Below are links to the registration form as well as a few photos from the 2012 Turtle Trot.
