RACE DIRECTOR LETTER

Jocelyn Cornish Hey there! I am excited to serve our military community as Race Director for Joggin for Frogmen and the Travis Manion Foundation. I am a military spouse and a mom of two, taking a break from my career as an Occupational Therapist so that I can spend as much time outside with my kids as possible. I am an avid hiker, explorer, and trail runner. I am honored to be part of the team for this fantastic event!

The Joggin’ for Frogmen 5k is a fun, family-friendly event with the wholehearted purpose of raising needed funds to honor the sacrifices of our Naval Special Warfare service members and veterans, and to support the families of our fallen heroes through the incredible work of the Travis Manion Foundation. Each year, this race continues to bring out the best in our community, and we are looking forward to seeing each of you on June 24th!

Cheers!
Jocelyn Cornish

What is Joggin' for Frogmen

Inspired by US Navy SEALs (Frogmen), the mission of the Joggin’ for Frogmen Race Series is to activate communities from around the world to honor the sacrifices of our Naval Special Warfare 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 participants age 7 and older will run in the 5k. Following the 5k is a “Tadpole Trot” for kids ages 6 and under.  The Tadpole Trot is a 50-100 yard dash. 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 2024 Race Season!

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