About The Tough Turtle
A 5k route along the beautiful Cayuga Waterfront and Black Diamond Trails on the south shore of Cayuga Lake, with challenging, homegrown obstacles with Ithaca flair. Designed to push racers, regardless of age or physical fitness. Individuals or teams, and all levels welcome! All proceeds support the Ithaca Children's Garden: Healthy kids, healthy planet.
And, did you notice the Tough Turtle is green? This a zero waste event. Pushing the limits of how fun waste-free can be.
The Tough Turtle 2014 will be memorable, to say the least. It will challenge you through physical and mental hurdles, and reward you with the feeling of a momentous accomplishment. But it will do more than that. Your participation in the Tough Turtle will directly support Healthy Kids and a Healthy Planet, by supporting the Ithaca Children's Garden.
Walk on the grass, pick the flowers, get muddy, taste an edible plant, climb a tree, touch, sniff, discover, this place is your place. Welcome to the Ithaca Children's Garden.
