Save the date for our next San Diego Joggin’ for Frogmen 5k at NTC Park (same location as 2014) on July 25, 2015!
Inspired by US Navy SEALs (Frogmen), the mission of the Joggin’ for Frogmen 5k race series is to activate communities from across the world to honor the sacrifices of our service members and veterans and to support the families of our fallen heroes. Our races bring communities together to celebrate the lives of America’s fallen and to express our deep gratitude to those still serving. All proceeds benefit The 31Heroes Project, Travis Manion Foundation, and Travis Manion Foundation through their One Team One Fight partnership.
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.
Remember to “Get your boots on!” We have partnered with our friends at The Boot Campaign and encourage everyone to honor our troops by wearing your boots while you run. If you don’t already have a pair of boots, you can purchase them from The Boot Campaign shop, knowing that your purchase will support this wonderful organization! Net proceeds from the sales of the boots will go to support the Boot Campaign’s five initiatives – Housing, Jobs, Wellness, Family Support and Urgent Assistance. Please select “Joggin’ for Frogmen” from the Boot Campaign drop down menu when you purchase your boots from their site.

I hope you can join us for the 2015 Joggin’ for Frogmen 5K in beautiful San Diego! I am excited to serve as this year’s Race Director. I feel it is our duty to give back to those who have sacrificed to protect our freedoms. My father is a Vietnam veteran and I am proud of the way our country has progressed in honoring our veterans but there is always more work to be done.
Thank you for joining me in support of Joggin’ for Frogmen and honoring our American Heroes.
Sincerely, Sarah Williams
Race Director – San Diego Joggin’ for Frogmen 5k
I grew up with pictures of my father’s time in the Army Reserve, one grandfather’s stories of his time in the Army during Korea, and the other grandfather in the Air Force that also served during Korea would only smile. One of my brothers served in the Air Force. Several of my friends serve in the Navy, Army, Marines, and Coast Guard. I have seen sad farewells and happy homecomings. I was raised with an appreciation of what it means to be an American and what it took, and still takes, for the men and women of our armed forces to protect our freedom to be American.
San Diego is not just a place with great weather, beautiful beaches, and peeling waves. It’s also home to more active and retired US military than anywhere else. I’m proud to call San Diego my home. I’m also proud to help Joggin’ for Frogmen San Diego in its third annual 5K to raise money to give back to the men, women, and families who serve us.
Sincerely, Tara Quick
