Join us for the 3rd Annual Joggin’ for Frogmen 5K and Tadpole Trot on Saturday, May 19, 2018 on beautiful Amelia Island, FL.

We are Joggin’ for our Frogmen on Armed Forces Day. This is a perfect event to honor our Armed Forces and their families.   We are excited about returning to the Fernandina Beach Golf Club, 2800 Bill Melton Road, Fernandina Beach, FL 32034. The north course will be our track and it should prove to be a great race.

There is nothing better than a benefit for the Navy SEAL Foundation and helping to care for our Naval Special Warfare community and their families. Run to honor and remember our fallen, but also run for those 8400 members of the Naval Special Warfare community and their families that carry a heavy load to protect and serve all of us. 100% of the proceeds from this event are donated to the Navy SEAL Foundation.

You will want to be part of this great event. You will want to bring your family and share in the fun. Help us help those that sacrifice so much.

Join us – register today and be a part of the 3rd Annual Joggin’ for Frogmen – you will have the time of your life!

Inspired by US Navy SEALs (Frogmen), the Navy SEAL Foundation’s Joggin’ for Frogmen Race Series brings communities and families together to jog in honor of the Naval Special Warfare community and their families.

Created in 2011 by the girlfriend of a Navy SEAL, the original Joggin’ for Frogmen 5k Run/Walk was held in San Diego on July 29, 2012. The race marked the one-year anniversary of the Extortion 17 helicopter tragedy in Afghanistan, a tribute to the 30 American warriors and 1 working dog lost that fateful day.

Joggin’ for Frogmen has since expanded to several annual races across the United States. In addition to attending one of these races in person, runners are also able to register as a Virtual Racer and run anywhere in the world or set up a fundraising page to continue supporting the Navy SEAL Foundation. Participants can choose a race from anywhere around the world and fundraise to support the Naval Special Warfare Community.

Today, Joggin’ for Frogmen is operated by the Navy SEAL Foundation, a non-profit organization with 501(c)(3) status.
