Join us for the 2nd Annual Joggin’ for Frogmen 5K and Tadpole Trot on Saturday, May 13, 2017 on beautiful Amelia Island, FL.
We are Joggin’ for our Frogmen and all of our Mothers on the Saturday before Mother’s Day. We are excited about our new location at 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 2nd 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.
All participants age 7 and older will run in the 5k. Following the 5k is a “Tadpole Trot” for kids ages 6 and under. All registered 5k and Tadpole participants will receive a Joggin’ for Frogmen race shirt at packet pickups. All registered 5k participants will wear a 5k bib and will receive a 5k finisher’s medal/bottle opener when crossing the 5k finish line. Tadpole Trotters need to register for the Tadpole Trot, but can do the 5k with their parents at no extra cost. All Tadpole Trotters will wear a Tadpole Trot bib and will receive a Tadpole Trot medal upon completion of the Tadpole Trot. Please note that while Tadpole Trotters can run in the 5k, they will not receive a 5k medal unless they have on a 5k bib, which requires additionally registering and paying for the 5k.
