Adopt a turtle to compete in the Turbo Turtle Race and cheer them on to a quick finish and chance to win prizes.

At 7 p.m. Thursday, July 1, the Bartlett Parks Foundation turtles will enter the water at the top of the Bartlett Aquatic Center tube slide, making their way through the lazy river to a single lane channeled finish line.

 

Turtles are pulled out one by one, in order, at the finish line. Each turtle has a number on the bottom that corresponds with the numbered ticket. Winners are announced at the end of the race.

The first- and second-place finishers receive a cash prize, with additional prizes for many more turtle finishers, including gift cards, memberships, passes and more.

This year a link to purchase turtles online has been added. Visit bartlettturtlerace.vraffle.org or bartlettparksfoundation.org

For information about the Turbo Turtle Race, or to donate prizes and services, call (630) 540-4824.
