A Turtle-y Fun Run: Social Media & Prizes

Mote’s STCRP research goes beyond the nesting beach, tracking turtles at sea using electronic tags.

During this year’s Run, we’re keeping in touch with our runners electronically too (no tagging required, except our social media hash tag #RunfortheTurtles 2020!).

Visit @MoteMarineLab on Facebook and Instagram to share your Run photos. Tag #RunfortheTurtles2020 and watch for special contests just for event participants:

SHELL-EBRITY SNAPSHOT
Show us an amazing photo of yourself or your socially-distant team running or warming up for our event—we can’t wait to see the diverse people and places involved in our Run this year! From these posts, we’ll select a winner to receive a Mote-themed Tervis Tumbler.

BEST TEAM THEME
Did you partner with friends, family or co-workers for a unique Run experience? Did you name your team something amazing? Did you dress up in costumes? The team with the best theme will win one six-pack of Leatherback Lager from Darwin Brewing (for age 21 and older) and Mote stickers.

TURTLE-Y ACTIONABLE TIPS
Take one of these actions to protect sea turtles and tell us all about it. From these posts, we’ll select a winner to receive a painting made by Mote’s own diamondback terrapin, Cecil.
