What is Joggin’ for Frogmen?

Joggin’ for Frogmen is a 5k chip timed run/walk that brings men, women and children together to jog in honor of our Navy SEALs (Frogmen) and all military Heroes who have sacrificed their lives for us while protecting our country. All proceeds from the Chicago race benefit the Navy SEAL Foundation.

Following the 5k is a “Tadpole Trot” for the kids. 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. All Tadpole Trotters will wear a Tadpole Trot bib and will receive a Tadpole Trot medal upon completion of the Tadpole Trot. Tadpole Trotters need to register for the Tadpole Trot, but can do the 5k with their parents at no extra cost. However, if a Tadpole runs 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.

BootCampaign-horizontalRemember 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.

Special Guest Speaker (Ret) Vice Admiral Robert Harward

With achievements such as serving as former Deputy Commander of the United States’ Central Command, multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan as a SEAL Commander, and working in the executive office of the President as part of the National Security Council, we are humbled to welcome Vice Admiral Harward (pictured) as our special guest speaker for the Chicago Joggin’ for Frogmen 5k!
