Reflecting Back on 2016

2016 was a great year for the Pink Turtles. Once again we committed ourselves to complete an array of 5k & 10k races. In addition to those races a few of us took on the Spartan Trifecta Challenge and completed it. The year was capped off by completing the Spartan Sprint at Castaic Lake on December 11th to complete our Trifecta goal.

Looking forward to 2017 the Pink Turtles are kicking off the year with "The Pink Turtles Commit at Caltech Walking Challenge" which will lead us up to our first event of the year, the Santa Anita Derby Day 5k on April 8th, 2017.

Keep an eye out for our post throughout the year for upcoming races & events, we would love to have as many of you as possible come out and join us. Let's keep the movement going!

Rainy First Week but a Pink Turtles Warm Front is Moving In

We had a great turnout of 16 for the first week of the Pink Turtles Commit@Caltech. We didn't let the rain stop us, instead of walking on Thursday we took it inside and did a circuit workout. Such a great group of committed people!

Forecast looks good...a new Pink Turtles warm front will be moving through.
