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.
We have grown from 1 race in 2012, to numerous races across the United States. We hope you will jog with us to support our mission and to continue helping our military families. To request a race in your area, please click here.
