Bring your family, get some exercise, and enjoy the natural beauty of Bald Head Island!  At the BHI Conservancy's Turtle Trot 5K, participants can run as fast or as slow as they'd like as they move through the island's ancient maritime forest and over the pristine beaches.

All proceeds support the BHI Conservancy's mission of fostering community-based barrier island conservation, education, and preservation - including our nationally-recognized Sea Turtle Protection Program.  

We are thrilled that we are able to offer our popular Turtle Trot with restrictions to help keep our supporters safe during Covid-19. All Turtle Trots hosted at the Conservancy will have staggered start times and a limited capacity.
