Tough Turtle 2016

Tough Turtle is a 5k obstacle course along the Cayuga Waterfront and Black Diamond Trails on the south shore of Cayuga Lake designed to test your TOUGHness.

A fundraising campaign for Ithaca Children's Garden

Tough Turtle is a 5k obstacle course along the Cayuga Waterfront and Black Diamond Trails on the south shore of Cayuga Lake designed to push your body, challenge your wit, and deliver the mud. Climb, sprint, crawl, and slide through the course. We double dog dare you.


Plus, you'll be supporting the kids. Every dollar that gets donated through Tough Turtle goes directly to Ithaca Children's Garden in ways such as: scholarships for summer camps, gardening tools and supplies, fruit trees and berry bushes, supplies to keep, healthy, happy hens at the Garden and host field trips for students from area schools and community centers. And so much more!



GET TOUGH.


FOR THE CHILDREN. FOR THE PLANET. FOR THE FUTURE.

About the Organization

Ithaca Children's Garden

Muddy fingers, eyes that sparkle with curiosity, children's laughter, new friends, growing food, learning about sustainability, creative pursuits and good old fashion play: discover it all at Ithaca Children's Garden! The Garden, home to Gaia, Ithaca's giant turtle sculpture, grows at the south end of Cass Park on Rt. 89. Everything done at Ithaca Children’s Garden is done with one goal in mind: to inspire the next generation of environmental stewards. The best way to do that is to get more children outside, with hands-on experiences, having fun in the natural world. Free and open to all, dawn to dusk, 365 days a year on the Cayuga Waterfront Trail.
