Run into sea turtle nesting season with Coastal Connections!
This Easter weekend's oceanside race is fun for everyone in your family. Starting at Oceangrill, the race begins at 8 a.m. The route runs north from Sexton Plaza to Jaycee Park along Ocean Drive and returns back to Sexton Plaza for a party! After the race, the fun doesn't stop. For adults, our friends at Sailfish Brewing Company will be providing beverages all morning long. For our kids, we have multiple activities set up including our famous Hatchling Dash, an Eco-Egg Hunt, and an egg painting station. We anticipate a great turnout for this family-friendly event and Vero’s only true beachfront race, with participants ranging in age from 10 - 70 years old.
100% of the race proceeds will be used by Coastal Connections to advance its mission of protecting coastal habitats for sea turtle survival by educating and connecting people to the environment. CCinc works year-round to make our community a more sustainable place to visit and live, and improve the health of our beaches, dunes, and marine life through immersive community outreach, education, activities, and ongoing programs.
