ICG's Tough Turtle

Ithaca Children’s Garden’s Tough Turtle, has been bringing racing, philanthropy, and excitement to Ithaca every April since 2013. The adventure obstacle race course sprawls along the Cayuga Waterfront Trail by the Garden and will challenge and delight even the most seasoned racers. Registration required. Different this year: No racer will be required to pay out of pocket and every racer will be challenged to raise $200 (or more for great prizes) for the critical cause of supporting Ithaca Children's Garden and their mission of fostering the next generation of environmental stewards.

For your little turtles, there will also be Tough Turtle Jr., a shorter and more kid friendly obstacle race sponsored by Home Depot that will take place within the Garden’s perimeter geared towards children 12 and under.
