PERHAM — The Turtle Fest 5k and 10k runs are approaching fast. On Saturday, June 18 at 8 a.m., both runs will begin at Arvig Park.

Packet pick-up and registration will be at the Perham Area Community Center, located at 620 Third Avenue S.E., on Friday, June 17 from 6–8 p.m. Race-day registration starts at 6:45 a.m. at the west end of Arvig Park, on Highway 51 by the softball fields.

The age groups will be as follows: 13 and under, 14-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and 70 and over

There will be awards for the top three runners in each age group, and for first place male and female overall finishers. All preregistered participants will receive a t-shirt. Late entries are not guaranteed a t-shirt — shirts will be given on a first-come, first-served basis on the day of the race. There will be fruit and water for all participants.

Register in advance online, or find mail-in registration information, at perhamturtlefest.com . Course maps can also be found online.
