After 141 racers competed, Alyssa Lang, age 13, of Ogilvie, Minnesota, emerged as the grand champion. The slowpoke championship went to Aiden Bradigan, age 6, of Kittanning, Pennsylvania.
The Longville Chamber would like to thank all who make this event possible, especially race
announcer Dave Adams, his assistant Brittney Wolters, and race judges Katelyn, Mary Jo, Charlee, Tarike, Addie and Pat. We would also like to recognize the volunteers from VFW Post 772 and Camp Olson YMCA.
Turtle races will be held each Wednesday through Aug. 23 in downtown Longville. Race registration and the contests and games open at 1 p.m. The Chamber Resort Race is held at 2 p.m., followed by the regular turtle races. Race registration is $3, which includes the rental of a turtle (or you can bring your own). Proceeds benefit all the community activities sponsored by the Longville Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce.
