Event Details:
One of Jekyll Island’s great traditions, the Turtle Crawl Triathlon, 5K and NestFest helps launch the annual sea turtle nesting season in Georgia’s Golden Isles.  The all-day event celebrating athleticism and ecology is the perfect place for a fun, family “racecation.”  Educational NestFest activities (free to the public, with $6 Jekyll Island parking fee) include the release of a rehabilitated sea turtle.  A portion of Turtle Crawl race registration proceeds benefit conservation, preservation and education programs.  For more information, visit
