What they are saying
I would highly recommend Funky Chimp. My purchase was easy and I ran it on my time. I love the medal and the tank top. The cost was reasonable. Everyone has been super helpful when I had questions. I can't wait to find another race to run through them.
With the pandemic putting in person racing on hold, virtual races are a fun way to continue training while supporting a great cause. This was a great way to bring awareness of the plight of sea turtles, so we can all work together to protect these beautiful creatures.
I loved my save the sea turtle shirt and medal! The shirt is so comfortable and soft, and oh so cute!! I did the 10k on Saturday on the beach, and it was an awesome experience. I volunteer at an aquarium that rescues, rehabilitates, and releases sea turtles and have participated in several releases. Thanks for this opportunity to continue to help Save the sea turtles!
