THANK YOU TO OUR 2019 SPONSORS

 
 

Letter from the Race Director, Mike Rouse

I received a call on Saturday, August 6th, 2011, that will forever change my life.  It said that my dear friend, Jon Thomas Tumilson, U.S. Navy SEAL (JT, to most, if not all of his friends), had been killed in the helicopter shot down which we all now know included the deaths of31 brave American heroes (30 soldiers, 1 service dog).  They were on a mission, Extortion 17, in Afghanistan. These 31 warriors gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country and for freedom.  I will never forget.  We can never forget.  It is with that idea in mind, that I wanted to add another race to the Joggin’ for Frogmen 5K Series here in my city, Frisco, Texas. I was fortunate to have been a part of creating the first Joggin’ for Frogmen race in July, 2012, memorializing the first anniversary of the incident. It has carried on for 7 more years, has extended to 8 cities across the country, and now we are ready in Texas to honor those American Heroes. I’d encourage you to either be a part of running the race on May 4th, 2019, or become a volunteer to assist us in our quest to pay homage to these lives, and their surviving families. I hope to see you all at The Tribute on Saturday, May 4th!!

God Bless, Mike Rouse

What is Joggin' for Frogmen

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 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.

Joggin’ for Frogmen is proud to partner with GORUCK for the 2019 Race Season!

Ruckers will receive the 5k shirt, medal and a custom GORUCK Finisher patch
