The Navy SEAL Foundation’s Joggin’ for Frogmen 5th Annual 5k race will take place on July 30th 2016 at Naval Training Center Park in Liberty Station, 2455 Cushing Road, San Diego.
Inspired by U.S. Navy SEALs (“frogmen”), the Navy SEAL Foundation’s Joggin’ for Frogmen race series brings together communities to celebrate the lives of America's fallen and to express our deep gratitude to those still serving.
The San Diego event has raised over $310,000 over the last 4 years and will look to make this the most successful year to date marking the 5th Anniversary of the race series. Race registration for the 5k is currently $45 for adult civilians, $40 for adult Active Duty Military, and $10 for the Tadpole Trot (children 6 & under). Registration for the 5k and Tadpole Trot will include custom finisher’s medals for all participants, chip timing and bibs, and a race t-shirt. Packet Pickups will be on Friday, July 29th, from 11am-7pm at Road Runner Sports, 5553 Copley Drive, San Diego, and race morning at NTC Park. After the race, athletes and spectators can enjoy a festival style event including a beer garden, food trucks and parachute jumpers landing in the park.
A Virtual Racer option is available for participants who can't make the race, but still want to fundraise for the Navy SEAL Foundation. Once Virtual Racers raise $100 they will receive a patriotic shirt and a medal.
Events such as this support the Navy SEAL Foundation and its mission to provide both immediate assistance and ongoing support to U.S. Navy SEALs and the entire Naval Special Warfare (NSW) community – veterans, active duty, wounded, transitioning and their families as well as families of the fallen. Over the last five years, Joggin’ for Frogmen events nationwide have raised more than $550,000 for military families.
