I am happy to be the returning race director for the 2017 Joggin’ for Frogmen San Diego 5K and Tadpole Trot in support of the Navy SEAL Foundation. This is the 6th Annual race in beautiful San Diego and the Joggin’ for Frogmen team could not do it without the amazing contributions from our sponsors, the community, and of course YOU the participants! Thank you so much for your continued support of this event and for joining me in appreciation of our warriors and their families. Can’t wait to see you on race morning!
Sincerely, Sarah Williams

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.
